What is the difference between Piping and Cabling?

What is the difference between Piping and Cabling? I want to perform wire harnessing tasks. Which would be more suitable? (I hope "wire harnessing" is not too generic)

Re: What is the difference between Piping and Cabling?

Go to Creo Piping and Cabling Extension (PCX) | PTC for a summary document on Piping and Cabling - they are combined in the Creo PCX extension

Go to Creo Harness Manufacturing Extension (HMX) | PTC for a summary document on the Creo HMX electronic harness extension

That should get you the information you are looking for

Shreyas,

Cabling is for working with wires, spools,electrical data,etc.

Piping is for working with pipes, linestocks, etc.

But also, take a look at the links that Mike suggested, above.

Thanks,

Amit

You can get additional information from the following:

  • Classes on PTCU
    • You will need to sign up and pay for those
  • Detailed information in the Help Center
    • Expand the Electrical Design and Piping
  • Tutorial videos on the Learning Exchange
