Electrolytic capacitor with cable ties

Post by damiyasaki » 17 Apr 2018, 09:48

Could you help me model this capacitor in Sherlock?

It is an electrolytic capacitor on the horizontal with cable ties for fixation.

Great question!

To model this in Sherlock, you would need the potting functionality. In the layer viewer, add potting in the region where the cable tie exists. The potting material will likely be Nylon.

Please let me know if you have any further questions, happy to provide more details!
