This chapter will cover the tools of the routed systems environments found in the Inventor Professional suite and the Inventor routed systems suite. Two primary tool sets comprise Inventor routed systems: tube and pipe and cable and harness. The tube and pipe tools are used in routing pipe and hosing through mechanical assembly designs. The cable and harness tools are used for electrical design where routing wires and cables around obstacles and checking for fit are important.
In this chapter, you will learn how to:
Create routes and runs
Author a tube and pipe component
Author an electrical component
Create and document cable and harness assemblies
The tube and pipe tools are based on Inventor fundamental concepts ...
