I have a cables in schematic diagrams,I want to show cable details such as cable type, manufacturer detail etc.
I could not find option to show. But in SLD we could show but I want show the same in schematic diagrams
Kindly help me out
I've played with this a bunch. The equipotential labels and wire labels don't have attributes available for cable information. We decided that if someone needs to know manufacturer and cable part number, then they go to the report at the end of the schematic that gives the list for all of that stuff.
The workaround I've used in cases where I have to know that information right on the page of the schematic, is to add those attributes to the symbol that the cable is attaching to.
I attempted to put that info into a symbol that is hyper-hyper passing, but it won't register that the cable is connecting to it. Setting it any other way breaks the cable.
Thank you for your reply. I really appreciate your work.
But I have some doubts in it, How you have used this symbol in schematic (How you have placed exactly to show these details).
Can you share me the symbol and sample schematic (SWE archived file)? So that I will implement the same in my projects also,
I've only used this symbol once for a very specific project that the engineer really wanted this detail shown, but that was just for design and building purposes. When we deliver it to the customer, he's probably going to revert it back to the original symbol.
Here's the symbol being used:
Below is where the attribute is found. You can see it is just for the cable plugging into connection point N:0.
It should be really easy to add to any symbols that you already have.
Just a note, the cable length will be zero, until you define it in the project's cable list, or you route it in solidworks and it calculates the length. Other values like part number and manufacturer will be fine.
Thank you very much daniel. It helped me.
The real answer is to have cable labels in the schematic, just like they have equipotential labels and wire labels. You may want to submit an enhancement request.
