Anyone know the logical theory behind all these types? I have tried asking the Routing Wizard LOL I know its a matter of getting the set up right, but where is that information. MY VAR is Useless
Even if your VAR is useless then you should still be able to get the Solidworks Routing Manual.Especially if your VAR is useless.
I've seen the latest version (2017) and it looks like it improved a whole lot since when I started with Routing back in '09.
Have you had the routing course?
No I am self taught.Peter De Vlieger
This is very helpful from 016 SWKS.Video Archive: SOLIDWORKS Routing - Pipe & Tube Routes - YouTube The main thing I was doing wrong was not creating the sketches on the FRONT plane. Still forging forward.
There are other (mostly internal) functions that use these values (route types) but the main two items that I am aware of is when routing the type helps SOLIDWORKS understand what the component is used for and the type of route it's going to be. You are not going to place wires in a pipe route for example. Or when placing a wire tie it will not be used to start a route.
It also helps SOLIDWORKS to understand how to flatten the route (harness vs. wire vs. cable).
Is there anything specific you had in mind or just general ideas..
