In Live Parts, you can save the current state of a design and return to it at anytime to continue or adjust the growth. You can use this feature 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.
Note that saving a design is different from [exporting a design]. Saving a design overwrites the previously saved version of the design (including the original LPI file originally imported into Live Parts). Use the Save As option to save the current state of the design to a different file.
- Select 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 process.
- Browse to the desired location and entire a file name. Make sure you use the LPI file type.
- Click Save.
- Select File > Open from the Live Parts menu bar.
- Select the desired file from the appropriate location in the Open window.
- Click Open.
