How to make this type of cable harness?
I have previously used Altum for Harness design. A snippet of such design is shown in the picture below. I wanted to shift to Zuken E3 for harness design due to the Altum limitation for generating reports. And the schematic design (in Altium) is converted into a foamboard diagram in Excel which increases the chances of mistakes.
I have tried to make the 3 connectors of the above schematic into E3.Series. I am facing some problems regarding these issues.
1) After grouping the pins, how can I see which pins are in that particular group? I have added extra text beside the pins group to show their pins. Does there is another better way to do it?
2) After grouping and wiring, I can't assign the signal to the wire? How can I assign a signal name?
3) If I generate a report of connections in Excel, The Pin column does not show the actual pins. How can I correct it?
Actually my problem revolves around multiple pins connections in Zuken E3. How do people manage these things? How do you work around this?
I will be thankful for your replies,
