Functionality Given Up, from Virtual Cable Assy to Normal?

Discussion created by 1-A56F1N on Apr 19, 2009
When you create the cable /harness assembly it uses "virtual" components.

When flattening the assembly it changes the assembly from "virtual" to "normal".
There must be a reason why compoents are presently starting out as "virtual".

What is given up for subsequent editing of the routes, components, & wires,
when it now needs to be done on a "normal" cable routing assembly, rather than a virtual?
