  • Correct install location
    Ken Kreshtool | maggio 07, 2020 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Hello folks,

    I had a terrible time getting the new ShaperUtilities (Export to Origin) v1.5 installed into Fusion 360 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:
     
    Manually install the "ShaperUtilities.bundle" file into the folder [user]/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/ApplicationPlugins/
     
    As soon as I did that, 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!!!


  • Still not appearing in MacOS - please clarify
    First Last | aprile 18, 2020 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    @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. 


  • Awesome & thanks for the update!
    Julian Rendell | ottobre 25, 2019 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    It's a great tool, and I was worried that it might be abandoned when it stopped working with the latest Fusion360 releases.

    Delighted to see it not only updated to be compatible, but also improved- hopefully no more weird line weight scaling 'features'!

    Thanks!


    Bart Bries | novembre 17, 2019

    Hello, you say that you have working it on the latest Fusion 360 release. I am trying to get it to work on version 2.0.6670, but after installation, it doesn't show up in Fusion. Any ideas on how to fix this?


    Jason Wilhelm | gennaio 02, 2020

    I can't get the plugin to show up in Fusion 360. I've tried all the prescribed problem solving methods described in the help document for Mac OS.


    Gerd Müller | febbraio 24, 2020

    Same Problem here: it does not show up. Any advice? Fusion 360 version: 2.0.7438 MacOS Catalina 10.15.3


    sam cuttriss (Autore) | febbraio 25, 2020

    Anyone struggling with mac installation, Fusion has a tendancy to install the addin to an old incorrect location. assuming the install succeeded, you ought to be able to manually direct fusion to the shaper utilities addin by clicking the geen "+" button in the tools>addins>scripts and addins> addins tab. Search your system for "ShaperUtilities.bundle" ( it can be in the old mac store location ) restart fusion, check the shaper utilities addin is listed in the addin menu, and make sure it is running. ( click the run at startup option ) and you should be good to go.


  • Uenexpected Error While Exporting
    Brandon Medina | marzo 09, 2019 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    This plugin is amazing, but I recently started getting an unexpected error telling me to check the log. Not sure if someone else has been experiencing this, but I'm getting "Failed in getOrientedBodyFailed" and "Failed in ExportCommandExecuteHandlerFailed" from the log.  Not exactly sure what these mean, but before I was able to export out bodies and now I can only export out sketches to SVG.


  • A must have for every CAD user
    Ralf Steck | gennaio 04, 2019 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    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.


  • Makes SVG Easy
    Marc Freilich | marzo 19, 2018 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    This made the process of getting designs onto the Shaper Origin almost completely effortless, without fumbling with export settings, or post processing in another tool.


  • Plugin Disaapears
    Christopher Golin | febbraio 02, 2018 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

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


    Propscientist Propscientist | marzo 08, 2018

    I have the same issue. I can't find the option in Fusion 360. Did you work out a solution? I don't have any option for exporting to shaper origin.


  • Simply excellent
    Martin Anderson | gennaio 04, 2018 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    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 | dicembre 22, 2017 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    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 | dicembre 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 | dicembre 06, 2017 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

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