|The Basics - Saving the Model|
| After clicking on the Save File tab (1), you will go to
a new page. The folder contents will be updated (if this is too slow for
you, hit the Esc key to cancel).
Type in a filename (2). You do not need to add a suffix. The model will be saved as filename.obj and the design will be saved as filename.smg.
Click on the Save (3) button to save the file. If the filename already exists, you will get a message box giving you the chance to cancel the save operation and input a new name.
DO NOT use the File-Save Stack menu choice. That does not save the model, it only saves the current settings in the program. You need to use the Save File tab as described here.
Before saving, you can change what information is saved in the .obj file. This will effect how a 3D program handles the model. Each 3D model has different coding, so no one solution works for all.
