To connect two cable trays or cableways using Move :

  • For inline connections, the two cable tray ends or cableway ends must be collinear to each other.

  • For branch connections, the header and branch runs must be orthogonal to each other.

  • There should be sufficient space at the connection to accommodate the connecting part. If the space is not sufficient, the software does not make a connection and displays a message suggesting that you manually to connect the cable trays.

  • The software consumes the first available straight feature of the moved cable tray to accommodate the connection thickness, such as a mating part.

  • In a partial move, if the connection results in an overlap the software connects the two ends with a To Do Record to maintain the connectivity.

  • If there is no space to accommodate the mating part, the software does not connect the two ends and displays a message suggesting that you to connect the ends manually.
