Once you have created a model using the Live Parts Add-in, you are ready to use Live Parts in your virtual machine to create a design. Your Live Parts virtual machine can be accessed on the Live Parts web app.
You can launch Live Parts using the method outlined below.
Launching Live parts
- Navigate to the Live Parts web app at liveparts.desktopmetal.com in your browser.
- Sign in using the credentials you created during the registration process.
- Click Start VM in the Live Parts Virtual Machine tile on the right side of the dashboard
- Once you are in the Live Parts virtual machine, click the Live Parts icon on the desktop to open up Live Parts.
Important: Once you complete Step 2, your Live Parts Virtual Machine is "on". From this point, your use of the Live Parts Virtual Machine will count towards your monthly limit based on your current Live Parts plan. Make sure to shut down your Live Parts Virtual Machine when you are done using it to avoid using up your capacity by mistake! As a fallback, your Live Parts Virtual Machine is set to auto-shutdown after being idle for 1 hour, but this requires that there are no applications running and no active connections to the desktop.
