Learn about a number of wire routing techniques that are commonly used in the industry. In this video, focus on creating in context wires for your routing directly within Fusion 360. This is a popular option as it can give visuals and lengths without the need for an additional wire routing software.
- [Instructor] So now that we've almost finished off … our simplified robotic arm here, … one final step I might be interested in is creating … the electrical wiring or cabling. … Now notice a lot of times in mechanical CAD systems … we might completely ignore the electrical cabling … and wiring, as it's fairly complex … on the mechanical side of things, … however, you probably have a full electrical team … doing this maybe on a separate electrical CAD system … for the cabling, harnessing, and so on. … That being said, however, if we did want … to create the electrical wiring within Fusion 360, … we of course have a few options to do that as well … and it might be useful to do this just … for say marketing purposes, … make it look nice, and so on, … or it could actually be useful … in say generating wire lengths or something like that. … So here I'm just going to show one method we might use … to achieve this … and I'm just going to start by creating some sketches, … so going to sketch on this face here …
