Manufacture-Style Flattening

A manufacture-style flattened route unfolds a route to scale and defines the boundary of a formboard in which to place the flattened route. You can use the manufacture-style flattened route when designing electrical cable routes for manufacturing.

Select Manufacture in the Flatten Route PropertyManager to create a manufacture-style flattened route.

To edit a manufacture-style flattened route, right-click the flattened route in the FeatureManager design tree and click Edit Flattened Route. You can edit:
  • Segment curvature
  • Segment angle
  • Flattened route center
  • Fan-out segments
You cannot apply manufacture-style flattening to ribbon cables.
