2,204 views

Published on

n this Solid Edge hands-on training session, we will take a look at the new Nailboard commands. Solid Edge Nailboard, we take the 3D Wiring Harness model and bring that into a 2D draft file then flatten the harness to a nailboard. The new tools in Nailboard allow users to insert bends, place Connectors, Connector Tables and Conductor Tables.
