To Redefine Splice Placement
1. Click Components > Component Operations.
2. Select the splice that you want to redefine. The MOD CONN menu appears.
3. Click Placement. The COMPONENT WINDOW and Place Component dialog box open.
4. Change the constraint type to one of the following:
Tangent to cable—The attachment coordinate system attaches to the location that you selected earlier with its z-axis tangent to the cable segment at the location.
Perpendicular to plane—select a Plane, Crv/Edg/Axis, or Csys from the GEN SEL DIR menu as a constraint to assemble the splice or custom component. The z-axis of the coordinate system is normal to the selected plane or aligned to the selected curve, edge, axis, or coordinate system. You can modify the direction of the attachment location to be parallel to the z-axis of the attachment entry port.
5. Click OK in the Place Component dialog box. The splice is repositioned to the new location.
