Attached video shows how to use the plugin and how to create a complex example which require few designs.
Execution in most cases takes less than a half of minute on i7/8GB RAM/512GB SSD computer. During the operation a progress bar with the current step is visible and process can be always cancelled.
Plugin doesn't check interferences automatically and doesn't perform any analysis of prepared components. Please make sure that the necessary check is done before releasing this onto production. You must be aware that real dimensions of manufactured components may be different than in the design. Every material has different characteristics and its parameters may change during time depending on the kind of material, temperature and humidity of environment, workload, etc. Simplest motion analysis can be done by using joints and motion rules prepared by the plugin. Both involute and trochoid interferences can be checked by eyes but there’s better, dedicated built-in tool (TOOLS Interference) available in Autodesk® Fusion 360™.
