Specifying Wires and Cables to Use

To specify the wires and cables to use:

  1. In the PropertyManager, click Add Wire PM_EditWires_AddWires.gif.
  2. In the dialog box, in Library File, specify the library file you want to use.

    All wires and cables available in the library appear in Select Wires. The wires and cables are listed by Wire name or Cable name as defined in the cable/wire library.

  3. In Select Wires, select a wire or cable that you want to use in the assembly, then click Add.

    The wire or cable is added to Selected Wires.

  4. Repeat the preceding step to select more wires or cables as needed.
    You can select a wire or cable more than once. For example if you need to route a piece of 20g_blue from connector A to connector B, and another piece of 20g_blue from connector A to connector C, add 20g_blue to Selected Wires two times.
  5. Click OK.

    The selected wires and cables appear in Wire From-To List in the PropertyManager.
