  • To load model choose File > Open and then select a model in open file dialog. Also you can press Ctrl+M to call model open dialog.

After you have loaded model it appears on a build plate. Now you can save a project. Project is the combination of session settings (profile + printer + materials), models on a build plate and their layup settings. Project has *.auproj format.
