How do I save models with external files?

Click Save to save the active design as a SpaceClaim document. A top level assembly file will be created, along with a separate file for each external component.

How do I work in a collaborative environment, with multiple people working from different environments on the same model?

Try the following:
  • After making any changes, click the Application Menu, then select Save As > Save As New Version. Different users can now track progress on the model based on the versions you apply.
  • Agree that only one person work actively on the model at a time, which allows you and others to see each iteration model as it develops.
