Improvements for Flattened Routes

Enhancements to electrical flattened routes give flattened harness drawings a cleaner and more complete appearance.

Improvements have been made in annotations and the detailing of wires in flattened drawings. These include clearer layouts of flattened harnesses, no overlaps, placement of connectors, fan-out creation for multipin connectors, support for splices, and improvements in the way disconnected routes are handled in flattened harnesses.

In drawings, connector tables are attached to the drawing view ,and connectors are highlighted when connector tables are selected.

Enhancements to editing flattened routes make it easier for you to manipulate fan-out segments. For annotation-style and manufacturing-style flattened routes, the Edit Flattened PropertyManager includes an option that lets you specify an angle to position an entire fan-out segment relative to the base segment. You can also specify the spacing between the individual fan-out segments. These options help remove overlaps between connectors, and fit designs within the confines of a form board for manufacturing-style flattened routes.
