Creo Cabling Solution

  1. 1. CREO CABLING Creo 3D Cable Harnessing Cabling
  2. 2. CREO CABLING History of Design Technologies 2D 3D Apps PDM PLM Cabling
  3. 3. CREO CABLING Benefits of 3D Cabling Modeling? • Connection to E-CAD • Complete 3D Model • Detect problems at early design stage • Advanced documentation for handbooks and manuals • Analysis (e.g heat transfer, air flow, magnetic influence) • Enhanced BOM • Parallel engineering – time to market
  4. 4. CREO CABLING Connect two worlds ECAD MCAD Enriched 3D Model
  5. 5. CREO CABLING Space Requirements (mechanical)
  6. 6. CREO CABLING Space Requirements (electronical)
  7. 7. CREO CABLING Serial Engineering Design • Mechanical Design Manufacturing • Manufacturing Assembly • Device Assembly Harness Design • Harness Prototype Harness Manufacturturing • Harness Manufacturing
  8. 8. CREO CABLING Concurrent Engineering Design • Mechanical DesignDesign • Harness Design Manufacturing • Manufacturing Assembly • Device Assembly Manufacturing• Harness Manufacturing
  9. 9. CREO CABLING Product Main Functionality Electrical CAD Cabling Design Cabling Manufacturing Electrical Library E-CAD Interface Creo
  10. 10. CREO ELEMENTS/DIRECT CABLING Main Features • Different cable types (round, flat) • Auto-snap connections • Interface to E-CAD systems • Library management • Cabling Manufacturing Drawings • Manual and Automatic routing (channel routing) • Dynamic cabling • Automatic calculations like wire lengths, channel thicknesses • PDM integration • Realistic visualization of Harnesses • Open System with customization possibilities
  11. 11. CREO CABLING Structures Cabling supports different structures • Wires • Cables • Units/Groups • Channels • Harnesses • Drawings • Fixtures ….. Wires build cables, cables build groups , groups build harnesses …
  12. 12. CREO CABLING Analysis of a harness project • 10 % Administration and preparation of components • 80 %Routing of cables • 10 % Post processing and verification Routing: Biggest Potential for efficiency increase ! How to create routing paths efficiently ?
  13. 13. CREO CABLING Cabling Routing Types • Manual Routing • Auto Routing • E-CAD Routing
  14. 14. CREO CABLING Manual Routing • User creates the wires one by one • Mainly for visualisations , manuals , manufacturing information • For small amount of wires • User has fully control on the wire path
  15. 15. CREO CABLING Auto routing • User defines the possible paths for wires as a 3d wire-frame object • This ‘virtual channel’ also defines the topology of the harness • User creates connections from device to device as ‘air-lines’ • Cabling automatically puts all ‘air- lines’ into the ‘virtual channel’ by finding the shortest path between two points • Mainly for large amount of wires • Necessary for harness topology
  16. 16. CREO CABLING E-CAD routing • User defines the possible paths for wires as a 3D wire-frame object • This ‘virtuel channel’ also defines the topology of the harness • Cabling creates connections from device to device as ‘air-lines’ automatically from the E-CAD interface file • Cabling automatically puts all ‘air- lines’ into the ‘virtual channel’ • Necessary for harness topology • Eliminates user errors
  17. 17. CREO CABLING Electrical Library (CCF Format) • Some components already available in “Cabling”, others can be easily added into the systems • Powerful librarian for fixture and pin definitions • LISP driven fixture elements like Clamps etc
  18. 18. CREO CABLING Auto-Snap Functionality 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.
  19. 19. CREO CABLING Cabling Manufacturing • Create an accurate 2D representation of the 3D harness. • Add standard or “embedded” dimensions to actual wire and bundle lengths. • Annotate the drawing with pin, wire and connector properties. • Add other data needed for manufacturing like wire run lists, bill of materials, connector information etc. • Move and rearrange the complete harness, each cable segment independently. • Create different reports about the manufacturing process. • Various design rule checks eliminate errors and ensure that pre-defined rules are obeyed. • One-to-one or scaled manufacturing drawing. • Possibility to customize the manufacturing drawing depending on the company standards. • Export of length information back to the E-CAD system.
  20. 20. CREO CABLING Cable Manufacturing Drawings • incl fixtures, connector icons and accessories
  21. 21. CREO CABLING Harness Drawing Creation • E-CAD Centric • M-CAD centric
  22. 22. CREO CABLING What is found at M-CAD side ? • Topology • Length • Fixtures • Space Calculation
  23. 23. CREO CABLING E-CAD / M-CAD Interface • Cable Harness Drawing + BOM + Connection List
  24. 24. CREO CABLING E-CAD / M-CAD Interface • Many E-CAD software vendors have modules to create cable and wire harness drawings
  25. 25. CREO CABLING E-CAD / M-CAD Interface
  26. 26. CREO CABLING E-CAD / M-CAD Interface • E-CAD software has all necessary information to produce cable harness drawings, connections lists and BOM … except two important parameters … Harness Drawing Connectors and devices Signal Connections Wires Lengths
  27. 27. CREO CABLING E-CAD / M-CAD Interface 1) Topology of the harness 2) Wire lenghts Lengths Topology ECAD
  28. 28. CREO CABLING E-CAD / M-CAD Interface Topology of the harness
  29. 29. CREO CABLING E-CAD / M-CAD Interface Wire Lengths
  30. 30. CREO CABLING Data Transfer 1-Way • Uni-directional Sytems MCAD ECAD
  31. 31. CREO CABLING Data Transfer 2-Ways • Bi-directional Sytems ECAD Mcad
  32. 32. CREO CABLING Creo Cabling E-CAD Connection • Cabling can read and write data from/to any E-CAD system, which is 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 Cabling functionality users can modify air-nets to 3D Harnesses. Wire List of an E-CAD System ...is converted into the Cabling E-CAD Input format
  33. 33. CREO CABLING Creo Cabling E-CAD Connection • Cabling checks Creo 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.
  34. 34. CREO CABLING Creo Cabling E-CAD Connection • 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.
