3D Cable Harnessing on OneSpace Design Modeling. http://www.mip.hu. August 2004 * Data subject to change. Introduction to MIP. MIP (Manufacturing Integration Products) founded in 1994, is the general distributor of CoCreate and CIM-TEAM products for Eastern-Europe.
August 2004 * Data subject to change
Last year MIP was able to expand CoCreate sales orders by 58% and increase the number of installed base customers in Eastern-Europe significantly.

Users can interactively define components and their counterparts by defining mate faces on both components and counterparts.
… once selected, components automatically “snap” to their counterparts without user interaction
Wires build cables, cables build bundles , bundles build harnesses …
Special Cable Types
Example: Multi-wire cables 1 – 12 cores
Example: Linear Pattern cables
Number of cores free definable in horizontal and vertical directions
Example: User defined Bundles
A user defined bundle consists of several round wires and cables with different radii.
Example: User defined Bundles
User defined geometry is simply stored as Workplane in a directory together with its bitmap image.Display Table is created automatically at run-time.
Biggest potential for efficiency increase !
How to create routing paths efficiently ?
Simply click points on a face to define the cable route ...
…go from face to face by simply clicking one point on each face ...
…SpaceCable rolls automatically perpendicular over bothinternal and external edges ...
Move core end point to any point ...
Bring single cores automatically together …
... use the option ‘Create as single’
... or re-bundle existing single cables
... to route multiple cables easy as single cable ...
... and re-split anytime to route single cores separately
SpaceCable ‘remembers’ original structure !
…and can be “splitted” or “bundled” anytime during modelling
…even flat cables can be easily splitted and bundled together!
If you have several parallel cables going in one direction
Define 3D polygonal channels for routing
Modify the channels with simple commands …
… like making parallel to edges
Cables and wires are modified full dynamically similar to the Dynamic Modeling concept of OneSpace Designer
SpaceCable can read and write data from/to any E-CAD systems, which are capable of preparing wire lists in a special ASCII format. After cable and connector data is read, devices are checked for existence and an air-net cabling connection is built automatically from pin to pin. With SpaceCable functionality users can modify air-nets to 3D harnesses.
are simple ASCII files
Connectors are placed interactively or automatically
SpaceCable checks OSDM model space automatically and finds out which devices are already placed – and which ones user must still load to the model
By simply selecting from the “Not Placed” list, users can load and position connectors within one menu.
Loaded pkg-parts get automatically new names assigned “Connector_Device name“
After all devices are loaded into model space …
A straight or tangential airnet connection can be made.
SpaceCable stores and manages different types of components like wires, cables, user defined bundles, connectors and other harness elements…
