Learn about creating a project, inviting people to a project, uploading files, and using A360 to manage relationships and copy files.
- [Instructor] Fusion 360 stores it's data in projects on the cloud. This allows you to access it from anywhere, and it also makes it easy to connect others with the data, to edit or review. In the data panel, I'd like to create a new project. I'll select the new project icon in the upper right and give it a name. Once the project is created, I can go in and invite people simply by adding their email address and selecting invite. At this point I won't be inviting anyone, but we'll continue on to take a look at the collaboration tools.
So I'll return back to the data area. Now that I have my project and it's active. Any design that I create and save will automatically be saved into this project. Though I have the option to save it to a different project if I like. I can also load data into the project by creating a new design from file, going to my exercise files, and selected a file such as the toy block step file. When I click open, this will open this file as another new file.
Notice that the title does not carry forward, so it is simply seen as new data that has not been saved. By selecting the save icon, I can tell it to select my project and give it a name. When I click save, it will add it to the project. Now this data is available to anyone who's been invite to this project. To add multiple files, such as all of the files that will be used for these videos, I can select the upload tool in the data panel. Navigate to where my files are, so returning back to the exercise files.
I'll select all of the F3D files. I can skip the toy block step file because I've already imported that, and click open. This will give me a list of the files and their size. When I select upload, the process will begin. They'll be listed here in the dialog, though I can close this dialog as the translation will be done in the cloud. I can see a general upload progress in the bottom of the data panel, and when it's done, it will clear out, and I can see the files beginning to load in the data panel.
These are the files that will be used for all of the future projects. Another way to view this data is directly through Fusion Team. By selected the name of the project at the top of the data panel, it will launch a web browser session that will take me directly to this project, in the cloud. Here, I can see the status of any of the files. I can also select a file, see if it's connected to any other design files or if it's used in any other design files, and I can even bring it up for viewing.
Anyone that's connected to this project, has the ability to do all of these things. They can open up this design file, and they can even add markups. These markups will be kept for the future, so that others can see what their comments were. Returning to Fusion 360, if I want to check the properties of this block for say a certification question, all I have to do is right click and select properties. This will give me all the physical information about this file, so that I can use it to answer questions.
