To document harness assemblies, you can create:
In standard Autodesk Inventor drawings, cable and harness information is treated like other parts and subassemblies and you can detail them using normal drawing manager methods and commands. Wires, cables, ribbon cables, and segments are automatically displayed in the drawing when displayed as rendered in the assembly. Looms are displayed in the color of the loom if they are set to show, which is the default. No other virtual parts are displayed. You can also manually include any combination of wires, segments, and cables as centerlines for ease in dimensioning or to save computation time. Splices must also be manually included in a drawing view.
If you include centerlines for wires or cables, but not the segment it is routed through, Autodesk Inventor determines the segments through which the wires or cables are routed, and then displays those centerlines along with those of the wires or cables.
You can use the standard Autodesk Inventor drawing templates located in the Open dialog box. You can also update your existing templates or create new ones.
For more information on creating and annotating standard Autodesk Inventor drawings, see Learn about creating a drawing.
Include centerlines in harness drawings
By default, centerlines of wires, cables, and segments in a harness assembly are not included in a standard Autodesk Inventor drawing. You must specifically include the centerlines for each harness object type in a drawing view. Harness changes to one view do not update any other views in the drawing.
Note: Wire, segment, and cable centerlines are controlled by the 3D Sketch Geometry layer.
All centerlines used for wires, cable wires, and segments with at least one routed wire, are included in the graphics window. Like nailboard drawings, segments that do not contain wires are excluded from the drawing.
Include splices in harness drawings
By default, splices in a harness assembly are not included in a standard Autodesk Inventor drawing. You must include the splices manually before they are displayed. Harness changes to one view do not update any other views in the drawing.
Like nailboard drawings, splices that do not contain wires are excluded from the drawing.
Note: To display the part of the splice that is hidden by other geometry, right-click the view in the graphics window, select Edit View, and then click Hidden Line.
