SOLIDWORKS includes many tools for evaluating part geometry. By analyzing the curvature of a parts curves and surfaces, you can evaluate the quality of transitions between features and the surfaces themselves. Understand what curvature is. Display Curvature to use colors to evaluate the surfaces of a model. Use Curvature Combs to evaluate sketch curves. Learn how to display the minimum radius and inflection points of a curve. Use zebra stripes to simulate reflections on faces of a model. Understand how to use evaluate tools to recognize tangency and curvature continuous conditions.

A From-To List is an Excel spreadsheet that defines electrical connection data for each wire routed in a cable assembly and components, such as connectors, terminal blocks, and ring terminals, to which the wires connect. From-To Lists allow the import of connection and component data into a route subassembly. Create a component library using the Component Library Wizard. Create a cable wire library using the Cable Wire Library Wizard. Use a component library and a cable wire library to create a From-To List with the From-To List Wizard. Place connectors to start routing. Use the \"Guidelines\" routing mode to create geometry for a route. Use the \"Re-route spline\" routing mode to modify a route to pass through pre-defined clips.
