Wiring/Routing body in an assembly

Pioneer
Pioneer

After making a wiring spline and assigning stock to it,

The wiring body is visible.

 

- Where can I find this body in the assembly browser ??

- How can I make such body visible again after switching it un-visible ?

- Why do these bodies stay visible when switching the assembly un-visible ?

 

I am trying to get my mind around how this wiring behaves in an assembly .....

And trying to find ways of handling them.

Hi @MohKraats ,

 

You can add Stock as component in assembly and use it accordingly:

Hello Samadhan,

 

That is what I do with fixed components.

However, for routing, especially wiring, this is no option.

Using a stock as part would render the route rigid.

For a non-linear route, such solution is not an option too.

 

Best regards,

Hello Samadhan,

 

My problem is with the applied stock, when not turned into a component.

 

Such stock doesn't follow the usual rules of handling.

 

Still, I can't turn the stock into components, because I am still working on the route.

Hi @MohKraats ,

 

Following some of the documentaion links might be helpful to you:

 

Common Routing tools

 

Hide routing objects

 

If problem still persists, please attach an image or video or part here.

Hello Samadhan,

 

Thanks for all the fedback.

 

Unfortunatelly, I seem to be using teh routing tool a bit defferent from usual apparently.

The docu you link to assumes a connection list.

I do not use a connection list.

So, I do not have any handles to manipulate routing object when they are not visible.

 

I can select stock that has been assigned to a routing spline.

Then I can switch visibility off.

 

However, now, since I cannot see it no more, I cannot select it no more either, since it is nowhere listed.

So, the challange now is how to get it re-appear again.

 

Anyway, I will try to find a way to get this into a movie too......

Once hidden...

Have you tried:
Menu -> Edit -> Show & Hide -> Show

 

The "reverse blanks" everything, so all hidden objects are now visible (and visible objects are hidden)

You then pick the object(s) you want to see, "OK" and they should be visible again

Hello Samadhan,

 

The only way, I found so far, to make the mentioned bodies visible again,

is to switch the visibility of the entire assembly off and on again.

Where then everything is set to visible, including the route bodies

Another option (instead of show/hide) is to put the routing objects on a different layer, and turn the layer visibility on/off.

Hello Ken,

 

Yes that does get me more options.

 

The golde egg, I am looking for though is a way to select mentioned body when not visible (hidden)

For instance by means of the assembly navigator.
