Tip: Fanning Out Multiple Wires to Components
You can attach multiple wires to multiple entry ports of a component in the flat harness. The component must already be assembled to one wire in the flattened harness before you can use this functionality.
Additional wires are attached to their entry ports only if their lengths permit it. Therefore, you must assemble a connector to the shortest wire portion first and then fan out remaining wires. The other types of components automatically assemble to the correct flattened segment that runs through it.
Make sure that you route all wires going to the component through a common location before you fan out to the connector in the 3D harness.
If possible, route the shortest wire portion straight out from its entry port in the 3D harness. The connector orientation may need to be modified so that the wires can reach the entry ports.
