To Create an Overbraid
1. Ensure that you have imported an XML file.
2. Click the arrow next to OverBraid.
The OverBraid option is not available in the ribbon by default. You can add the OverBraid option to the ribbon from the PTC Creo Parametric Options dialog box.
3. Click Create OverBraid. The REF OVERBRAID menu appears.
4. Select one or more logical overbraids from the list.
Cabling creates an overbraid feature with associated cables. You can now route the individual cables of the overbraid either manually or automatically. However, the overbraid itself cannot be routed.
If a drain or shield is present in the XML file, you must route this wire manually.
