Change wire spool after wire creation

Change wire spool after wire creation

The ability to change which spool was used to create a wire after the wire was created. Currently, if you wish to change the spool, you have to delete the wire and create a new wire.

not true, you can change the spool with the function "parameters"

As mentioned above, this is possible using the "Parameters" button in the "Route" group inside the Cabling ribbon.

 

If you have more than one spool defined in your assembly, select the cable you would like to change, and then modify the desired spool in the column as needed.

After you change the value, regenerate the model to view with the new properties

The one caveat here is that it is a bit more difficult when trying to change the spool for a "Cable" with multiple sub-conductors, depending on how/what you're changing from and to.

 

Similarly, you'll want to be careful when changing the wire if the spool is being driven by logical data (XML, NWF) coming from Creo Schematics, Zuken, or some other schematic tool.

 

Hope this helps!
