You cannot route branches along an existing helix, line, curve, spline and spiral.

Refer to Routing Branches along External Curves.

aprereq.gif (1223 bytes) Open the HelixBundleSegment.CATProduct.
  1. Select the helix in the geometry or the specification tree.

  2. Click Bundle Segment .

    The bundle segment is added to the specification tree: the Curve is created.
    CATIA switches to the Electrical Harness Installation workbench (Part).
    The Bundle Segment Definition dialog box opens:
    You can change the name, diameter or section, and the bend radius.
  3. Click OK to validate the bundle segment definition.

    The result looks like this:
The bundle segment route is associated to the part. As a consequence, if the part is modified, the bundle segment is updated.
