|This task explains how to define a
for electrical bundle segments.
This functionality is available in Electrical Part Design workbench only.
|A protection part is a
mechanical object used to cover one or more bundle segments.
The bundle segments must be tangent at their extremities, within the same geometrical bundle.
The centerline of the protection part is a combination of the bundle segment centerlines.
This functionality is only available for bundle segment with circular section.
It is possible to add supports to bundle segments inside a protection part.
|Open a new CATPart document.|
|You can now save the protection part into a catalog. Using the Electrical Harness Installation workbench, it will be possible to instantiate and modify it according to your needs.|
|As the bundle protective covering object is highly customizable and
flexible, you can modify the reference to create new kind of objects that
protects bundles (refer to
Creating a Protection Part of Given Length methodology to see an
example). You can modify the geometry, add a design table, user attributes
or a material to fulfill your protective covering specification. All this
information will be stored into the catalog and re-instantiated each time
you will use the protection part in your 3D design.
Be aware that if you modify the geometry, you must not change any object under the ElecRouteBody at the risk of getting hazardous behavior when instantiating, modifying or updating the protection part.
|You cannot instantiate an protection part over a protection product.|
