It isn't the most discoverable workflow at the moment although we will be addressing this in a future update to the dashboard.
What is dashboard? The folder under my-first-project? I tried, I can see the "+" icon which seems I can drop my IGES. However, nothing happens. I assume import a CATIA 5 file works the same way but that doesn't work either.
I also created an empty file and drag-drop the IGES file to the view and it was not allowed (with a can't icon).
I then searched word "dashboard" and get empty result.
Check out item 4 in this post. There's a screenshot of what it looks like when dragging and dropping files into the dashboard.
I also made a quick video showing me importing a smaller IGES file. Keep in mind that a larger file may take longer to process.
Hope this helps!
I found it is important to drag-and-drop to the area of the list so to make the list dark shaded. If the mouse is on the empty area of the dashboard, nothing happens.
The import drag area is very touchy sometimes moving the mouse a little is making the drop area highlight go away.
It looks like the code that drives the mouse over evaluation has issues or reacts to interface elements like text below
the mouse courser.
Maybe just have a general area instead ?!
We realize it is tricky sometimes to get the Drag/Drop to work correctly. We are working on updating this to make it more discoverable and less picky in an update to the dashboard that we will be rolling out.
importing into the project is straight forward - but how can I assemble modelled and imported parts similar to the work flow in Inventoir Fusion?
Example: create a pulley, download a bearing from SKF as DWG and use it in Fusion as part of an assembly.
Extruding complicated profiles e.g. is easier to do in AutoCAD and subsequently use them in Fusion assemblies would be more than useful.
Once the assembly is complete, it can be translated to SAT, imported into AutoCAD, saved as DWG and processed for renderings e.g.
Can this be done?
