Cabling Flattening Multi-conductor cables using MFG/Harness
This is a question that is only for those ProE users of the Cabling module.
I am trying to flatten a cable using the MFG/Harness function. This seems to work just fine until I try to flatten a multiple conductor cable.
Here's what I've done.
This cable has a multiple-entry port connector on each end, connected by a 3-conductor jacketed cable, with red, white, and black conductors.
I created a coordinate system offset by 8 MM from the entry ports of the connectors.
I routed between these coordinates using the route/whole cable function.
Then I routed the three conductors from each end of the cable to each connector using the route/conductor function.
I now have a cable assembly which shows a single thick cable between the two connectors which fans out to the individual entry ports on each connector with a single red, white, and black wire.
The problem I'm having is when I try to flatten this out. I pick a connector to start from, pick either the wire location point on the entry port, or the wire point where the individual wires break out of the cable, and all I get is the connector on the end with the three colored wires. I don't get the cable or the connector on the other end.
Does anyone have a suggested technique for doing this?
