What's the easiest way to fix a routed cable that has a failed section?

I have created a network and I'm trying to route cables using that network.  Sometimes when routing a cable the "OK" button will be be grayed out so that you can't select it.

So I right-click on the cable I'm routing and click "Failures"

That shows me that the route is unable to maintain the minimum bend radius.

I'll take a look at the routed cable to see where it's failing

So that leads to my question...

What's the easiest way to fix this section so that it doesn't violate the minimum bend radius?

Maybe remove the point in the middle of the bend?

Not sure..............

Locations appear to be too close together.  I would eliminate some, as previously suggested.  I think too many locations is a common problem while people route cables.  Need just enough to get the shape you want.

Also could reduce the bend radius in the spools for your wire.

You did good to find the slightly different colored segment of your cable.  Not so easy in large assemblies.  Something that PTC could improve upon.
