Routes cables through connected cableways and conduits. You can define the path of a cable path by either manually selecting the entire path or by automatic calculation of the shortest route that meets your predefined criteria (cableway signal types, way-features, avoidance features, entry and exit points).

To define the path manually, select the entry point, the way features through which the cable should pass, and then the exit point.

To define the path automatically, you need to optionally define the required entry/exit points, the way-features (branch features the route must go through), and the avoidance features (straight features the route must avoid). Then click AutoRoute , and the software finds the shortest route.

  • The cable must exist in the model before you can define the path. Use Insert Cable to create cables.

  • The cableways and conduit that the cable routes through must be connected. Cables cannot jump between unconnected cableways/conduits. To place cableways and conduits, use the Route Cableway and Route Conduit commands.

  • A way feature represents combination of way node and way path through which you route the cable.

    • Way node is along-leg feature or a feature that has branch.

    • Way path is a straight, turn or transition feature.
