Energy Chains in SW2015

John Wayman

Good morning,
I recall one of the selling points of SW2015 was the way it was able to handle chains as a particular kind of feature, that meant they could be dragged and animated and would behave like the real thing.
Now that the dust has settled on 2015, does anybody use this new feature? If so, has it proved useful?
We have a recurrent need to model cable management drag chains (energy chains) on industrial robots. Certainly in 2014 it is not an easy task.
I would welcome the feedback from those of you who have used this functionality.
