Anyone have any magic tricks for closing loops? I have a cable routed in a U-Shaped Wireway. The Wireway has 4 mounting bosses in the center. In order to clear the bosses the bundle it has to split into 2 bundles, one on each side. Then routes back into one bundle thus creating a loop which needs to be closed at the MFG Flat Harness.
In the MFG I continually get the message "Some cables are not long enough to close this loop. Please reduce the bend angle of related flat segments" Most loops I have closed in the past because the slop in the particular area did not matter. These particular loops I want to dimension and control. I may just go without the .35 segment and sketch it in at the drw.
Pro-E should be able to close the loop regardless. I know where I have moved the segment in the flat it has to be less than .35 Was looking for a config option
I can move the segment to a ridicules geometry and close it, but cannot adjust it back to anything near the formed shape needed with it failing many features. Have even brought the bend radius down to .001 in the spools.
