Toolbar

The toolbar provides access to tools that you can use on the Modeler and Physics tabs.

Modeler toolbar

The Modeler toolbar

Button Description
Selection tool. Use to select parts, faces, and edges in the 3D viewer. To clear selection, click or tap the area around your model. This also resets the selection tool to (Default Cursor).
Default Cursor: Click a face or edge to select it, or double-click a face to select a part. Once you’ve made a selection, the appropriate selection mode ( , , or ) is automatically activated.
Part Selection: Click a part to select it. Click additional parts to select them also.
Face Selection: Click a face to select it. Click additional faces to select them also.
Edge Selection: Click an edge to select it. Click additional edges to select them also.
Rectangle selection tool. Draw a rectangle in the 3D viewer to select multiple faces of your model.
Import a CAD file from your computer or Onshape. If the design version already has a CAD file, this will replace it and remove all associated materials and physics constraints.

The other tools of this toolbar are not yet functional. They will be available in a future release.

Mechanical physics. Where you have already selected a face, the load/fixture will be applied to this face. If you haven’t yet selected a face, the load/fixture will be applied to the next face that you select.
Pressure loads and fixtures can be applied to multiple faces.
Force Load: Applies a force to a surface. Currently this must be a static load.
Traction Load: Applies a traction (pressure oriented in a specific direction) over a surface. Currently this must be a static load.
Pressure Load: Applies a pressure over a surface. Currently this must be a static load. A single pressure load can be applied to multiple faces.
Fixture: All degrees of freedom for nodes on this face / these faces are fixed, for example the velocity of these degrees of freedom is constrained to zero. A single fixture can be applied to multiple faces.
