Adding routing to existing assemblies

Question asked by Britt Kessler on Oct 2, 2019

We have some assemblies that we want to add routing to for the assemblers. These units have pneumatic, liquid-filled tubing & fittings, as well as electrical harnesses and terminals.


I'm not worried about BOM generation from SolidWorks because we handle that with a different process. The assemblies are used for production / repair guidance.


So I need to add in tubing and wires to the assembly models: Is there a way to add the attachment points for the routes to the existing models from within the assembly? I've tried dropping in planes and sketch points to attach the routes to, but it doesn't work or gives me errors.


I'm also looking for some tutorials with more in-depth use material...something that might address my situation.


Thanks for any assistance,
