General Usage Instructions
After downloading and successfully installing the SimScale add-in into Fusion 360, you will be able to upload the current CAD model to any of your projects on SimScale. To do this, you will have to:
- Switch to the “Model” perspective inside Autodesk® Fusion 360™.
- Either click on the SimScale add-in icon in the “Model” panel, or “Launch the SimScale add-in” in the add-in menu.
- If you are not logged in, you will be asked to do so, and if you don’t have a SimScale account, there is a link in the authentication window which will take you to the sign-up page.
- After logging in you will be prompted to choose the project on SimScale to which you would like to upload the CAD model.
- Having selected the project, click on “Upload to project”. Depending on the geometry’s complexity, the upload may take a few minutes.
- You can safely logout at any point after completing the upload, by clicking on “Logout from SimScale” in the add-in panel.
- To continue working with your model, visit www.simscale.com/dashboard and open your project.
