Testing for Continuity

When I receive a new ‘conductive thread’ I first test for continuity and then resistance.
 
Testing electrical continuity of a conductive thread
 
Set your multimeter to the continuity setting, I prefer multimeters with an audible setting. Then place the two probes along the material to be tested. In general, if the multimeter makes a beeping sound then the material demonstrates continuity and will work for an electrical trace.
