  • Not installing properly
    Amaury Lemal | Mai 17, 2020 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    installed it, restarted Fusion 360, and nothing is happening no Shaper icon, no nothing. I tried @Ken Kreshtool way but unfortunately is not working either for me.

    Is there any other plugin that do work to export to svg?

    Carlos Carbonell | Juli 12, 2020

    It took me a while, but look for it under the tab "Tools", it's there, and it works!


  • Correct install location
    Ken Kreshtool | Mai 07, 2020 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    Hello folks,

     

    [EDITED June 3, 2020]

    I had a terrible time getting the new ShaperUtilities (Export to Origin) v1.5 installed into Fusion 360 (Mac OS) today. The installer failed. And none of the manual installation instructions were correct. They were just wrong as to the location in which to manually install the bundle. I wasted over 2 hours on this.

     

    The correct answer seems to be this, if the installer fails:

     

    VERSION 1: Manually install the "ShaperUtilities.bundle" file into the folder 

    [user]/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/

     

    OR

     

    VERSION 2: Manually install the "ShaperUtilities.bundle" file into the folder 

    [user]/Library/Containers/com.autodesk.mas.fusion360/Data/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins

     

    Why 2 options? Because there are two very slightly different versions of Fusion 360, with different folders for where plug-ins go! If you downloaded it directly from Autodesk, use Version 1. If you downloaded it from the Mac App Store, use Version 2 (the ".mas" in the pathname = "mac app store").  In real life, you might have both — or remnants of both — on your Mac, like I do. Maybe I downloaded first from the Mac App Store and then downloaded a newer version directly from Autodesk? Crazy & confusing! Is there any easy way to know which version you are actually using? No. 

     

    I *think* it’s OK to install a copy of ShaperUtilities.bundle in both locations, if you have both locations available on your computer. YMMV. 

     

    As soon as I installed in location 1, and re-started Fusion 360, the “Export to Origin” icon — black circle with white triangle — was right there in the Tools tab. And the plugin is working fine, just like it used to before Fusion 360 changed things that necessitated the update to the plugin. 

     

    Can you please update your online installation instructions? I spent over 2 hours fighting with this. What a waste of time!!!

     

    Thanks.

    Ken

     

    P.S. You can extract the ShaperUtilities.bundle file from the .pkg file using the app called Pacifist.

     

    P.P.S. A lot of installation headaches are recently being caused by needing to give permission in Mac's System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy ... either "Accessibility" or "Full Disk Access". That wasn't the problem for me here — the installer failed for me even with those permissions given.

    Thank you SO much for this!!!

    Amaury Lemal | Mai 17, 2020

    that didn't work for me at all, the icon won't show up no matter what I do 😔

    Andre Wolfram | Juni 20, 2020

    Thank you for this it is working fine now !

    Curt Schulz | August 17, 2020

    Saved the day, thanks!!!!

    Jesse Ross | November 07, 2020

    This was beyond helpful, Thank you. The bundle was extracted from the .pkg with Pacifist, added to both of the paths until it appeared in the Add-Ins. Pressed Run and the Shaper Icon Appeared. Again Thank You


  • Still not appearing in MacOS - please clarify
    First Last | April 18, 2020 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    @san cuttriss - Same problem with MacOS here, and still not working:

    I tried the green + method you mentioned in a previous reply, but when navigating to the ShaperUtilities.bundle it is greyed out in the file selector that appears after clicking +.  It will not allow me to select it?

    I can find ShaperUtilities.bundle in this location:
    $HOME/Library/Containers/com.autodesk.mas.fusion360/Data/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/ShaperUtilities.bundle
    and there is also a symbolic link to that file, from this location:
    $HOME/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/ShaperUtilities.bundle

    Could you please clarify which is the correct location?  Would it be possible to just copy it to that location?  Or does it have to be added with "+", and why does that not work?


    Also, please clarify if it is required to add it both under the Script and the AddIns tab.  Your answer seems to suggest both, but not why this is the case. 

    Amaury Lemal | Mai 17, 2020

    I tried that as well and there is indeed no way to select "ShaperUtilities.bundle" has it is greyed out. Any other suggestions?


  • A must have for every CAD user
    Ralf Steck | Januar 04, 2019 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    I had some issues creating SVGs for the Shaper Origin in the beginning. Being a CAD guy, I'm not familiar with Illustrator et al.

    Now it's super easy to create a sketch in Fusion 360 and importing it to SVG. Just tick "Advanced" and use "Entire Sketch". With the new version it's even easier to export text to SVG.


  • Plugin Disaapears
    Christopher Golin | Februar 02, 2018 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    Plugin works amazing. The only problem is its absence every time I open Fusion.


  • Simply excellent
    Martin Anderson | Januar 04, 2018 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    This is almost ridiculously useful. If you need an SVG, you need this. Kudos to the Shaper folks for making it available.


  • Great plugin
    Mark Evans | Dezember 22, 2017 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    This little plugin simply outputs a color-coded SVG file. It works great. Written for the Shaper Origin, it eliminates any need to use an are program like Inkscape to get what you need with this device. Also, while written for the SO, this also works great for Glowforge users. The color coding is not specific to the Glowforge but the operation type can quickly be changed in the Glowforges UI.

    Laird Popkin | Dezember 06, 2018

    As the owner of both a GlowForge and SO I find this plugin extremely useful. You can literally load the same SVG into both devices. For example, I laser cut an acrylic sheet to inlay into wood carved with the Shaper Origin. Worked great!


  • Works as intended!
    Florian Horsch | Dezember 06, 2017 Geprüfter Download (Was ist das?)

    Great plugin to use with Shaper Origin handheld CNC! Nice and simple.
