One of the new features in E3.series 2018 is the ability for users to create their own line and application fonts. The advantage to this is now users can create completed graphics such as spiral tape and corrugated tubing, which will follow the curvature of a segment on a formboard. These line fonts can be defined for any graphic entity in E3.series.
This tech tip explains the different methods of renaming your wires in an E3.series, either while adding them or after they’ve been added to your project. It includes setup instructions for each method.
Please join us for our Fall/Winter Webinar Series that will run from September through March 2019. Over the following months, we’ll be covering a wide range of topics, from Silicon Expert to E3.series MCAD co-design. During each webinar, we’ll cover a common design challenge and present/demonstrate a solution. You’ll leave with takeaways that you can immediately apply to your daily activities.
E3.series provides a tool to export components and symbols from one database and import them into another database of the same version.
Cable ducts are special devices used in E3.panel that can be created with or without a definition in an E3.series database. These cable ducts can be created and placed on panel sheets; they’re used to route wires from one location to another. They can also be used with automatic routing functionality so the wires are routed from start to finish using the shortest path, which would be defined by the cable duct.
