Can I use the routing add-in without the design library?

Hi,

 

I am new to the routing add-in, but I am designing an assembly with a lot of electrical harnesses so I'd like to take advantage of this tool. My employer does not use the design library at all, which seems to make routing very difficult. I have a top level assembly with connectors which are already mated. Ideally, I would like to be able to add connection points within the connector part files, then make a harness subassembly which contains only the cable (no connectors). At a minimum, I would like to be able to mate the connectors without dragging and dropping them, even if they have to be in the harness subassembly.

 

At the moment, I cannot rout between connectors if they are not both in the harness subassembly. If I try to have both connectors in the subassembly, it will not let me mate them since I think they are intended to be mated automatically with the drag and drop from the library.

 

Does anyone have any tips on how I can make this work?

 

Thanks!
