Hose/tube/wire routing workflows

michael_mcclainmichael_mcclain Member Posts: 196 PRO
Hello all,

I am tasked with routing many tubes in a complex system.

I am currently using the Hose Routing custom feature: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/54d06a3b8abd1fcb0daba26b/v/16f739552dcdf3d410138b57/e/e689b647e557695970d3d603
I am using a combination of circular faces, cylindrical surface extrusions, & sketched circles to route tubes, but I find it to be a lot of work.

I would like to ask the community for workflows, and tips & trick to routing tubing, wiring, hoses, etc...

I am also wondering if someone has a featurescript that uses spatial points (maybe x,y,z coordinates) to pass a 3D curve through and then sweeps a circle profile along the curve path. I am not very familiar with featurescript or I would attempt it.

Thank you, Michael
