Benefits and Description
You can define the length for an entire cable. If a location is moved such that a subsegment becomes shorter, the other subsegments within the cable proportionally increase. When you are editing locations to a position that requires the cable to be longer than the set length, a message appears on the pointer to provide feedback. If you try to terminate the editing at a position where the overall length is violated, you receive a warning message that the cable will fail along with suggestions on how to prevent the failure.
