E3.formboard is fully integrated with E3.cable. Together they provide a complete solution for designing cable harnesses for manufacture.
Any-scale harness creation
Bundle segment diameters
Clips, convolute, heat-shrink
Optimized print functions
Dynamic links to E3.cable
E3.topology takes logical designs into the physical world. Topology sheets created at any scale are added to the overall E3.series project. Sheets can represent chassis or plant layouts and installation spaces such as the dashboard or equipment are added to the sheets. The connections between these installation spaces represent harness routes or cable runs. Alternate views of logical devices held in the same project are placed into the relevant installation spaces.
E3.Functional Design is an add-on module to E3.cable that supports the development of the first sketches used to drive the detailed wiring. In the early development phases, block diagrams are created and connected through specified communication channels. Then functional units containing signal properties are placed in dynamic components. After the desired functional units of a dynamic component are correctly assigned, the dynamic component is replaced by a standard component from the library.
Includes all the functionality of E3.viewer and E3.viewer+ and also allows users to create markup detail within either.e3s or .e3v files. Users can copy circuitry, add graphics and annotate recommended field or production changes for the design team.
Supports all E³.viewer+ functionality
Insert graphics and text
Copy and insert sub-circuits as graphics
Create E³.redliner information for transferring back to the original design
E3.3D Routing Bridge enables companies to integrate their electrical harness design with all major MCAD vendors. Electrical harness details such as connectors, terminals, splices and netlist information are transferred to the MCAD system, where harness engineers route the cables in the mechanical space. The length and structure data for the harness is then fed into E3.series, where the final details are added for manufacturing.
E3.3D Routing Bridge works in conjunction with E3.cable.
