A project represents an FEA model. A project can contain multiple designs of a model, and each design can consist of multiple versions.

For a description of these terms, see What are designs and versions?

When you visit the Projects page of the dashboard, you’ll see projects that you have recently accessed plus a list of projects of which you are an owner.

projects does not include any projects that you can view or edit but do not own. To see these, go to the Team page.
