Route Types

SOLIDWORKS Routing enables you to create several types of routes:
  • Piping
  • Flexible Tubing
  • Electrical (cable and wire), Cable Tray, Ducting and, Trunking
  • Electrical conduit
  • Ribbon cables and Flex Cables
  • User Defined - Rectangular and Circular cross sections

Routes fall into several categories, such as electrical wiring enclosures, fabricated cable, soldered copper, PVC, flexible tubing, welded piping, and associated fittings. The user defined route type allows you to create rectangular and round HVAC ducts, conveyors and chutes, whereas the electrical route type allows you to create ducting/ trunking and cable tray routes, in addition to cable and wire routes.
