Insert cable/bus command

Insert cable command is very convienient when trying to insert a straight cable with some natural sag.  However when trying to draw cable that could wrap around a piece of steel, grounding cable, there is no way to control where the cable goes.  In MS we could use a b spline which let us add as many vertiices as we needed.  Is there some way to do this in Bentley Substation?

  • You probably want the cable going through multiple clamps to sag in between clamps, right? And so you can currently do that by having two hook points for cables on each clamp and drawing a separate cables from clamp to clamp. If this is not acceptable, is that because you want the total length of the cable with one device tag instead of having separate device tags for each cable segment and calculating the overall length?

    Can you provide pictures or more details about "cable that could wrap around a piece of steel" and "possibly curve" ?
