AutoRoute vs Manual

Post by Glen Cameron » Wed Mar 03, 2004 6:17 am

Very simply put, the help file shows the 2 different methods.
AutoRoute is the automated method where the steps are setup so you go from the start to the end of the process.
The Manual method uses the Apply Section as one of it's steps (which include drape, flatten, vertical align, apply section, etc.) (these commands are all used by us in the AutoRoute Routine to make things eaiser for you in most cases).

I would recommend that you follow the tutorials and movies on the AutoRoute routines and see if this will do what you are after.
The manual method can be helpful in some isolated cases, where the AutoRoute may not be as helpful.
