Import Post Processor and Machine Definitions

Download the following:

  1. Create a new document in Fusion and switch to the Manufacture workspace.

  2. Open up the Post Library under the Manage section.

  3. Select My posts/Local in the left side bar and click Import. Find the OpenBuilds post file you downloaded and select it. It will show up in your posts library.

  4. Close the Post Library window and open up the Machine Library, also under the Manage section.

  5. With My machines/Local selected, click the import button.

  6. Click the "Select from my computer..." button and open the LEAD CNC and Piranha machine definition files.

  7. After importing, both machine definitions will likely have an error since they can't locate their associated post file. Click the "Select a post..." button that looks like a folder.

  8. The post library will open for you to select a post to associate with a machine. Select the OpenBuilds post from your local posts to fix the association.

  9. Once both machines have an associated post, things should look like this. You're done!

If you have any issues following these steps, send an email to tools@area515.org for help.
