Need To Create solid cable having bending (radius) restrictions and fixed intermediate hose position, fixed length etc..
By which method it can be modeled?
Actually one of user is creating brake cable and he is facing routing issue
Attached is a document which may be of interest to you.
Thanks for the info. But I have a different scenario. In my assembly, there are datum points and I want a curve to pass through that with a control of radius. The curve should not be formed by default. So is there any method to control the curve radius?
There are at least a couple of ways to accomplish this if I understand what you are trying to do.
If your path can be divided into planes, one or more sketches can be created with tangent connections and full control over the radius. The path can then be made into a single line with an approximate copy.
If the path is a bit more complicated, parts of all of it can be created using the intersection of two sketches. This can make radius control a bit more difficult unless you are very careful with selecting the sketch planes and the relationship between the sketches..
Given your conditions, bend radius restrictions, fixed length and fixed positions, you will likely need to use the piping module.
In an assembly, go to APPLICATIONS, PIPING to see if you have the appropriate PTC license for piping.
In your method, I need to draw the curves. But What I need is different.
I have fixed datum points, Cable have to pass through this points and can be take curvature considering stiffness value/allowable bending radius
I have PTC License for piping, Can you please help with some documents to follow to get this result.
PTC learning exchange has some videos. Search for pipe. Tutorial: Routing Flexible Hoses
I don't know of any tutorials to learn piping. PTC University has classes on it.
