E3.formboard is a complete solution for creating cable harness drawings for manufacturing.
The logical interconnection data defined in E3.cable is used directly in E3.formboard, and any changes made in either module are automatically reflected.
"E3.formboard calculates the wire lengths and the outer diameter of the harness segments. Automatically creates optimized cable routing for you."
"Due to E3.formboard's integration with E3.cable, any changes in either module are automatically reflected everywhere else."
"Automatically creates tables of connectors that can be used for the manufacturing process, and graphically shows the size and position of conductors and connectors."
Harness Builder for E3.series is an integrated module that is purpose-built for harness manufacturers.
It enables wire harness manufacturers Harness Builder for E3.series enables wire harness manufacturers to create accurate quotations and comprehensive manufacturing documents, and to drive wire preparation, assembly, and testing machines.

E3.formboard - Demo drawing
E3.formboard drawings provide a view of the cables and harnesses as defined in the schematic diagram.They comprise both electrical and non-electrical components including connector placement, wire segments, protective coverings, clips, labels etc.
Wire lengths are automatically determined and a packing algorithm calculates the outside diameter of the harness segments. To fit to paper size, harness branches can be rotated about any point and special print functionality allows individual sections to be reprinted
Configurable connector tables can be placed in the drawing to display pin, wire, cable, signal, gauge, color, and target information. These tables are dynamic, meaning that a wire can be added to a pin displayed in the table and connected to a pin in another table and Formboard will automatically route the wire from pin to pin through the harness segments.
Harness segments can be highlighted when the length displayed on the sheet does not correspond to the manufacturing length defined for each segment. These ‘out-of-scale’ segments can be automatically adjusted to display the correct manufacturing length assigned to the segments of the harness.
E3.formboard is fully integrated with E3.cable. The logical interconnection data defined in E3.cable is used directly in E3.formboard and any changes made in either module are automatically reflected in the other.
Manufacturing data can be extracted from the design in the form of wire lists, which include route and length information. Modules interface E3.panel to manufacturing equipment such as Komax wire preparation machinery and Perforex drilling, punching and cutting tools.
