Flex Cables

You can route single strip flex cables between two connectors as part of electrical routes from Tools > Routing > Electrical > Start at Point and selecting Flex Cable as the subroute type. You can also drag and drop a flex cable component into a route assembly.

In the Connection Point PropertyManager, you can set the cable thickness, cable width, alignment direction, and stub length.

The Flex Cable support is built on the existing Ribbon Cable functionality. The From-To List functionality is not available for flex cables.
