We are currently finding it a bit difficult to display a representation for heat shrink or braiding that covers a connector and we would be keen on a new feature “Cabling cosmetics” that will indicate the length in a different manner as to the current bracket indication "[ ]" that lies on the line (wire or cable representation) in the HMX drawing as this detail could be overlooked when the ending bracket will be placed on top of a connector. Thus a new feature will indicate braiding or heat shrink next to and parallel to the line (wire or cable representation) in the HMX drawing as shown in the attached image. This will make it easier to see and interpret the representation in the flattened view of the HMX drawing.

I'm a longtime Creo user (from Pro / Engineer 16) and a former PTC employee.
I would like PTC to invest in the renewal of the Cabling interface and workflow that I think are definitely dated.
It is not possible that in 2020 this module still has a strong presence of the old hierarchical menus it had in the old Pro / Engineer (especially with regard to the harness part).
While up to the Mid 90's was understandable the massive use of these hierarchical menus (due to the lack of power of the graphical cards), now it makes no sense.
As PTC is pushing towards the augmented reality that needs a Digital Twin, this Digital Twin should be easily built by designers even for the Cabling / Piping point of view.
If PTC wants to continue to be a market leader in the MCAD sector, must not only develop new "Wow" technologies (such as topological optimization, for example ...) but also invest a part of the new subscription model revenues to update and improve its fundamentals without which everything else makes no sense.

These ideas stem from discussions with the PTC users whom have attended my Creo Cabling courses, my experience with competitive products and industry / customer requirements for electrical documentation. Users are looking for more common simulation, analysis / evaluation of there documented designs in Schematics and Cabling environment. 1. Load based, 1.a User enters the Simulation interface, selects Load type of simulation to run, enters in design requirements, analysis runs and Entities in both Schematic highlight with tool tips describing event at those entities. 1.b Example: A surge goes through a system would highlight input voltage cables and Disconnector only if the surge is beyond the capacity of the disconnector or run through the rest of the circuit as designed. 1.c Results of simulation can be Quick, saved or Features for use in Report and Tables 2. Logic based, 2.a User enters the Simulation interface, selects Logic type of simulation to run, Here the system evaluates all of the components of the design and generates input fields for these devices 2.b Example, simulation a n Position selector switch Simulator evaluates the Selector Switch Position Option and provides a GUI ui to change the position. As the position changes the down steam circuitry highlights, and if an event happens down circuit light LED indicator the event is identified with result. 3. Common analysis/evaluations requested as they are often required for Testing and Validation so they should be able to be saved, and or features with bi-directional communication between schematics and model 3.a would include Short--Circuit Current Ratings calculation 3.b wire size calculator to determine proper wire size based on Wire Resistivity, length of wire, Load Current and Allowable Voltage Drop of source voltage. 3.c Voltage drop calculator

Add extra parameters in the Wire List. I like to get following parameters but with the current list it’s not possible. Name, Wire/Cable, FROM RefDes, FROM Part Number, FROM Pos., TO RefDes, TO Part Number, TO Pos.
