Beta Finish Wire with Type

Beta Finish Wire with Double ComponentID and Type

We have another Beta wire shape available for you.  This Finish Wire shape is very similar to our Beta wire shape that shows the ComponentID at both ends.  The additional function of this shape is that the line pattern and color of the shape is determined by the Type field of the wire product.  There are nine Types coded into this shape and each one has its own color and pattern: Audio, Control, Data, Phone, Power, RGBHV, RGB, RF, and Video.  If your product has its Type field set to an "unknown" type (not one of the nine listed above), the default is a solid black line shape.



To try out the shape:
  1. Download the stencil from here. This is a zip file named “Wire and Cable – New Beta Finish Wire Double ComponentID & Type.zip”.
  2. Unzip the file to the following location:
XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\D-Tools\SI5\Visualizations\Stencils
Vista/Win7 – C:\ProgramData\D-Tools\SI5\Visualizations\Stencils
  1. Open a Visio project file and you will see the stencil listed under our Custom section of your Stencil Tree.




  1. Drag the “New Beta Wire Double ComponentID & Type” shape to a schematic page and select a product from your database.
