Setting Routing Options and File Locations

Routing requires some setup to run and work properly. Before starting a route, review the default settings in System Options.

These settings are used to set the behavior for all general, piping, tubing and electrical cable routes. They also include options for drag and drop, error checking, and text size.

To specify routing options and file locations:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click Tools > Routing > Routing Tools > Routing Library Manager, and click Routing File Locations and Settings .
    • From the Windows Start menu, go to SOLIDWORKS Tools version > SOLIDWORKS version Routing Library Manager > Routing File Locations and Settings .
    • Click Tools > Options > System Options > Routing File Locations > Launch Routing Library Manager.
  2. Set options and file locations, then click OK.
