Flexible part in assembly?



I have searched high and low and cannot find an answer to this.

Is it possible to model a flexible item in SolidWorks? ie. a flex circuit board, or a rope. Establish the constraints on either end and allow the middle to slack?

As far as I know, you'll have to model the part directly as you expect to see it. You can use configurations to have alternatives (one sags and one that is straight).
