Product Overview

CATIA - Electrical Harness Flattening 2 (EHF) provides user with flattening of 3D Electrical Harnesses created with CATIA - Electrical Harness Installation 2 (EHI) to produce 2D associative drawings for inspection and documentation purpose. CATIA - Electrical Harness Flattening 2 (EHF) extracts 3D Electrical data and provides a flattened view of the Electrical Harness. User is provided with a set of tools to manipulate bundle segments in term of position to reach the adequate solution.
CATIA - Electrical Harness Flattening 2 (EHF) enables user to generated also 3D flattened view of his harness. Therefore, he can decide that a bundle segment that is very rigid must keep its original bended shape. 3D Mechanical constraints defined with CATIA - Electrical Harness Installation 2 (EHI) are preserved, so that bend radius and length of bundle segment are still constrained. The product is fully integrated with CATIA - Electrical Harness Installation 2 (EHI). Besides, the natural integration with Interactive Drafting 1 (ID1) allows user to define and manage the relevant set of annotations and dimensions to create full reports for documentation.

Product Highlights

  • Provides automatic and complete flattening of a 3D electrical harnesses for manufacturing documentation
  • Allows users to manipulate bundle segments according to their specifications
  • Synchronizes the flattening harness model from the 3D model for accurate associativity and concurrent engineering
  • Provides Filtering Management to deal with configurations of 3D harness to generate several relevant harness drawings through integration with CATIA Electrical Wire Routing (EWR)
  • Integration with CATIA - Electrical Harness Installation 2 (EHI) and Interactive Drafting 1 (ID1) and Generative Drafting for documentation purpose

Product Key Customer Benefits

Provides automatic Flattening of a 3D Electrical Harness... The user can get the flattening of his entire 3D Electrical Harness model from a simple click.

Allows user to manipulated bundle segments... The user is provided with a set of intuitive tools to manipulate bundle segment to reach the optimized position of each branch.

Synchronizes the flattening harness model from the 3D model for accurate associativity and concurrent engineering... User can reconcile his flattened view with the 3D model to allow concurrent engineering. This improves design productivity and avoids inconsistencies between the two representations.

Provides Filtering Management to deal with configurations of 3D Harness to generate several relevant Harness drawings... Electrical Wire Routing 2 (EWR) gives user the ability to manage different configurations of Flattened harness drawings from a single 3D Flattened Harness

Integration with Electrical Harness Installation 2 (EHI) and Interactive Drafting 1 (ID1) and Generative Drafting for documentation purpose...
