Saving and opening designs
- Click File->Save or File->Save As from the Live Parts menu bar. If Live Parts is currently in the process of generating a design, clicking either of these options temporarily pauses the growth.
- Using Save overwrites any files already in the model folder (C:\Program Files\LiveParts\model) with the same filename, including the original ".lpi" model imported from SOLIDWORKS.
- Using Save As saves the current state of the design under a new name.
- Click File->Open to open a saved design and export or continue to grow the design.
The save/open functionality in Live Parts allows users save fully grown models for later use. It also allows users more easily perform design iteration and exploration by preserving the state of a design mid-growth and then creating and saving several variations of a fully grown design each with variations in forces or gravity.
