||This task shows you
how to manage local slack. When you manage local slack, you adjust
the slack of a segment of a flexible tube, conduit or waveguide.
|In the following
scenario a flexible tube has been routed on a design element - a plate in
this case. The first segment (on the left) has little or no slack
in it. This exercise shows you how to add more slack to it. The exercise
will also show how to remove all slack.
||With your document open, select the
flexible route and click the Manage Local Slack button
The Local Slack Management dialog box opens and the flexible
tube highlights red. Also, labels display on the tube showing the amount
of slack added to the segments. In the image below, they show that no
slack has been added to any of the segments.
||To manage the slack of
a given segment, select the label of the segment
you want to adjust. The dialog box displays the length of the segment
in the Slack Definition field. The Minimum Length
field displays the minimum length needed to bridge the distance between
the two end points of the segment.
||To increase slack in a segment,
enter a value in the Slack Definition field and click the Add
Slack Between Two Points button
Click Apply or OK and slack will be added to the
segments, as shown in the image below.
The Reset button allows you to restore the original value
of the Slack Definition field. You can use it even after you
have saved and closed the document.
||To make the segment straight, click the Ignore Slack
Between Two Points
and click Apply or OK. The segment will become straight.
||Click Apply if you have
more segments to adjust; or click OK to apply your changes and close the
