    Twisted wire problem. Cannot find "In-house", cannot assign pitch schemes to multicore-wires

      Creating pitch-definitions, then assigning them to pitch-tables is done without problems, but when creating a mulicore-wire as a part in Component Library, adding a sheath under the tab "Multicore Wires", with its' child Single wires, cimbined under "Twisted", it's impossible to assign a pre-defined pitch table to the twist. Help files point to a so-called "In-house" option which needs to be activated, but we cannot find the option.

          Yeah we had this discussion at work like 2 weeks ago.  Here was our interpretation.  Vesys is just looking for a part number on a wire it isn't supposed to take it to that next level of defining how those parts are made.   Thats what spec drawing are for or a note.  So setup the multicore as normal and give your harness supplier a spec page for the "in-house part"   The reason behind this is because when you define a length in harness you are already taking in the twist of the wire into account.

           

          At least that was our interpretation
