To-day a harness drawing can be generated in moth cases from an existing 3D model. If no 3D model is available topology can be designed in sketch mode with MS_Cable or can be imported from a 3rd party system.

MS_Cable supports standard interfaces KBL and different proprietary interfaces as DSI and Mentor Bridge.

A harness drawing should show all cost and manufacturing relevant details. This includes wire protection and dimensioning.
Connectors, fixings and cable channels have to be shown as symbols with the necessary dimensioning points.
These symbols can be imported using standard symbols SVG or dxf.

Requirements of OEMs have to be respected when a harness drawing is generated. MS_Cable and V5H Design offer already different utilities to achieve that. For Renault e.g. the sheets SQE, CNC and NOM are created.
