To use 2c8 Lite you need the latest version of Java installed on your computer.
As a Lite user you will be assigned a repositoriy (or several) and their models by a administrator in Modeling Tool. It could be all models or just some of them.
When you got access to a repository and some models it could look like this:
The blue boxes contain your local models. The upper, “MY MODELS” contains your created models and the lower “SENT FOR MAINTENANCE” is an overview of the models you sent for approval.
The orange box shows all models you are working on.
The green boxes will show you models that are waiting for review and approval
The purple boxes contains models that you are responsible for.
Follow the instructions in the “Getting-started”-document that comes along with the license.
If you are missing the document, please contact the support.
Click on the plus icon “New model” to create a new model. The new model will open automatically.
Hover over the different icons to read a brief explanation.
Right click on current object and choose:
“Document – New document link / Existing document link”
When you choose to create a new document link you will get a popup where you can enter a title, select type and browse or paste a link to your document. To test your link click on “Open link”.
If you choose to use an existing document link you will get a popup containing existing documents.
Your new model opens automatically.
Note that you can have several breakdowns from one object.
Use layers to control, among other things, how the model content is presented in the published material. A layer is linked to one specific model type and one object type can only be linked to one layer. To create a new layer you need to have 2c8 Modeling Tool. In Modeling Tool you create and connect objects to layers.
To put objects in a layer right click on current object an choose “Move to layer” and select your layer.
