I am try to use the Route Cable function in Solidworks Electrical 3D. Everytime I route the cable it gives me this warning:
No valid path found, 1 warning
Between "EwCable@CAN1|2822 <-> Isec_0_0@CAN1|2822 <-> Isec_1_0@CAN1|2822 <-> Isec_2_0@CAN1|2822 <-> Isec_3_0@CAN1|2822 <-> Isec_4_0@CAN1|2822 <-> Isec_5_0@CAN1|2822 <-> Isec_6_0@CAN1|2822 <-> Isec_7_0@CAN1|2822" and "EwCable@CAN2|2833 <-> Isec_0_0@CAN2|2833 <-> Isec_1_0@CAN2|2833 <-> Isec_2_0@CAN2|2833 <-> Isec_3_0@CAN2|2833 <-> Isec_4_0@CAN2|2833 <-> Isec_5_0@CAN2|2833 <-> Isec_6_0@CAN2|2833 <-> Isec_7_0@CAN2|2833"
To give some context, I have two connectors CAN1 and CAN2, each with 8 pins and thus 8 C-points each, and one cable with two conductor cores, one green and one yellow. The warning doesn't stop prevent the cable from getting generated, but I have three main concerns:
- The warning suggests me to use preview to inspect the error. This generates two sketches "NotFoundFrom" and "NotFoundSegregated" which I posted as Fig1. and Fig 2. below. Can someone explain to me what these sketches are trying to tell me?
- To me the warning is suggest that there is no invalid path between CAN1 pins and CAN2 pins, but my cable still got generated. Does that mean Solidworks did find a path? Or maybe I am misinterpreting the warning message.
- To me it seems like the generated cable is working as intended. I don't see anything wrong with the cable model even though Solidworks is giving me a warning. Can anyone identify what is wrong with my cable?
Fig 1. NotFoundFrom sketch is selected and highlighted in blue. It points from the connector c-points to the pin c-points on CAN1.
Fig 2. NotFoundSegregated sketch is selected and highlighted in blue. It points from the connector c-points to the pin c-points on CAN2.
Fig 3: Two conductor cores are routed to the correct pins on the connector. The generated cable looks functional to me.
I will gladly provide more information and screenshots upon request. This is my first time using Solidworks Electrical and Solidworks Electrical 3D.
