It is difficult to know in advance how to setup dividers for different voltage levels in a raceway system because until you route the cables it is not clear what size sections you will need for each voltage level. As of Update 5 of Bentley Raceway and Cable Management , you can make use of Dynamic Divider setting that allows the cable routing to calculate the size of the divider sections needed based on cable routed through raceway sections. This article describes how to use this Dynamic Raceway Divider setting.
1.Launch the application and open a Raceway DGN file. 2. In the Raceway model , Click on a raceway and click on the Raceway Properties to open the Raceway Property Manager dialog. Click on the Dividers and add a divider for the raceway. 3. Select the <Dynamic> setting from the divider settings picklist for Section 1.
The divider settings for section 2 will automatically be updated to <Dynamic>. The dynamic setting will calculate the optimum position of the dividers to route the maximum cables possible through the raceway once cable routing is performed.
4. Open the Routing DGN file. Note: Open an already routed DGN file. For detailed steps to perform automatic routing refer to this link. 5. Click on the Cable Manager. 6.In the Cable Manager, click on the Routing Model menu and select the Refresh Routing Model to make the changes made in the Raceway model available in the Routing file.7. Right click to select all cables and perform automatic routing for all the cables.8. The cables are now successfully auto-routed.9. Click OK to bring back the Cable Manager. In the Routing Model menu, click on Raceway Fill Info.10. Select the raceway route and the Raceway Fill info is displayed. The dynamic setting calculates the optimum size of the divider sections to route the maximum number of possible cables through the raceway.
