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.
- Now that we have almost finished off … our simplified robotic arm design, here. … One final step we might want to run through … is adding some electrical wiring or cabling. … Now notice in a lot of cases this is … kept out of a CAD design and might be … done an another third party electronics … or electrical software, where all the … wiring and schematics will be done. … However you do have the ability to add … some of this into Fusion 360 as well … and this might be useful for you, say … if you're looking for wire lengths … or something like that. … Or if you just want to enhance the design visually. … But it is a somewhat complicated process … so a lot of times people will not include … this in their CAD design. … But we'll take a look at how it can … be done if you are looking to include this. … So, there's a number of ways that we can accomplish this. … Essentially we're just sweeping about … a fairly complex path to create … something that might look like a wire. … So I'm going to start a sketch, maybe on this face here. …
