Auto Route

The Auto Route tool automatically creates route geometry. In the case of electrical Routing, a spline is generated to connect the short stub lines of the connectors and create a route.

Auto Route enables you to:
  • Route automatically through existing geometry in the 3D route sketch.
  • Route automatically through certain objects that are outside the route sketch.
  • Update routes to travel through selected clips.
  • Update routes to travel through any axis.
  • Display guidelines that show wires from imported from/to data, manipulate those guidelines, and convert them into routes.
