Not long ago, Siemens PLM Software and Mentor Graphics announced integrations between NX, their Mechanical CAD application, Capital, their harness design ECAD application, and Xpedition, their board design ECAD application. There’s an infrequently cited capability there called interactive highlighting or cross-probing. In this video, Chad Jackson provides an overview of what it is and why it is important.

The Rising Demand for Routed Electrical Collaboration
The design of harnesses isn’t always the highest priority in the development of smart, connected products. Yet, errors in their design can have a longstanding detrimental effect. In this post, we look at designing them concurrently and collaboratively instead.
