CATIA - Electrical Harness Flattening

Achieve flattening of Electrical Harnesses for extensive drafting production (i.e. manufacturing documentation).

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
