In many areas of automotive manufacturing preformed hoses will be used. Using such a hose will be form a physical model of the line contours.
The shape results from the installation situation. These will be cured and are also expanding their shape. For these lines are derived tool data from the CAD data which forms the basis for the production of these lines represent. These geometry data have in contrast to the flexible components no elastic deformation behavior. Only the length of the line is crucial.
The module IDO:Route is the base to produce and publish cylindrical pipe components such as Pipes or gas lines, and thus provides the basis for new application areas. e.g. in the ship building or plant construction.
