I have successfully autorouted some wires in Wildfire 4 using a Logical Reference File, but I cannot get the same thing to work using a cable. I modified my original Logical Reference File to replace the 3 Wire Spools with a single Screened Twisted Pair Cable Spool.
I am told that nothing has been autorouted because there is insufficient entry port data.
The connectors are the same as they were when it autorouted the wires, so they must (?) be OK. Therefore, in my mind, the problem must lie either in the Cable Spool definition (not likely, I believe), or in the information telling Pro/E which pins to connect using which conductors.
I cannot find a definitive guide to the syntax of this information, so I have attached the relevant portion of my Logical Reference File. Can you see what I have done wrong here?
