Project details

When you select a project to view, you’ll see that project’s details. A project details page looks like this:

  1. Basic project details
  2. Project core-hours and summary
  3. Versions & history
  4. Project collaborators
  5. Project Studies

Where you have archived a project, most of the options on this page are disabled, save for the option to unarchive the project. See Archive a project.

Basic details

This section shows basic project details. You can also archive or delete a project from here.

Only a project owner can edit these details or delete a project. For more information about project permissions, see project collaborators.

Edit a project name or description

  1. Select and then Edit Project.
  2. Update the name and/or description.
  3. Select Save.

You can set the thumbnail image from the Modeler.

Archive a project

You can archive projects that you’re not working on anymore. This hides them from projects on the Projects page and also disables the ability to edit them. You can, however, still access archived projects, and you can choose to unarchive them at any time.

Archiving does not affect your team: when you archive a project, any other owners of that project will still see the project in their projects. Archiving is simply a way for you to “tidy up” your own projects.

To archive a project, select and then Archive Project.

To unarchive a project, select and then Unarchive Project.

Delete a project

  1. Select and then Delete Project.
  2. Select Delete Project.

Deleting a project is irreversible! Everything associated with the project will be deleted.

If there’s a chance you might need the project again, consider archiving it instead to hide it from view.

Open the Modeler

To open the Modeler, select The Modeler button. This opens the most recently created design version.

Project core-hours and summary

This section shows other basic project details, including information about core-hour spend and collaborators.

Versions & history

OnScale Solve keeps an extensive version history for each project and allows you to create branches to experiment with different designs.

Each project can consist of multiple branches, and each branch can consist of multiple versions.

What are designs and versions?

A branch represents one possible form of a model. Let’s say you’re designing a product and have two possible designs that you want to simulate and compare. You would have one project for this product, and in this project you would create two branches, one for each design.

A version is a record of the state of a particular design at a particular point in time. A new version is automatically created when you make edits to a design after running a simulation study (for example, you change a material). This ensures that you always have a copy of the state of a model at the time that you ran the simulation study.

On the project details page, there is a tree which visualizes all branches and versions:

In the above screenshot there are three designs:

  • Design 1: Automatically created when you create a new project. This branch has two versions.
  • Design 2: Created by copying Branch 1, Version 2. This branch has one version.
  • Design 3: A new blank design (i.e. it wasn’t created by cloning an existing design version). This branch has one version.

Create a new version

  1. Select New Version on the branch or version you wish to use as the origin.
  2. Set the Version Name and Version Description, and Version Name as required.

    These fields are automatically populated. However, providing your own names and descriptions can make it easier to identify designs and versions later.

  3. Select Save.

Edit the name/description of a design or version

  1. Select and then Edit Version.
  2. Set the Version Name and Version Description, and  as required.
  3. Select Save.

Open a specific version of a design in the Modeler

On a desktop or laptop, hover over the design version you want to open and then select .

Alternatively on any device follow these steps:

  1. Select the design version.
  2. Select The Modeler button.

Archive a design or version

You can archive designs and versions to prevent any further work being done on them.

An archived design version cannot be edited by you or your team. You can, however, still access archived design versions, and you can choose to unarchive them at any time.

Archive a version

  1. Select a design version.
  2. Select and then Archive Version.

If the design version is the design’s only version, the design will also automatically be archived.

Restore an archived design or version

To restore an archived design or version, follow the steps for archiving but select Unarchive Version.

Project studies

A list of all simulations for a project are found in this section. To open results click  and select Open Results.

Project collaborators

With Team and Enterprise accounts, multiple users can collaborate on a project. This functionality is not available with Pro or Free accounts.

For other users in your team to see a project that you have created, you must add them as a collaborator. A collaborator can be assigned one of three permission levels for the project:

  • Viewer: The collaborator can view the project but cannot make changes to it.
  • Editor: The collaborator can create and edit designs and versions but cannot perform other actions such as editing the project’s name or description; allocating core-hours to the project; archiving or deleting the project; or adding other collaborators to the project.
  • Owner: The collaborator has full control over the project.

To add or remove collaborators, you must be a project owner.

Add collaborators

  1. Select Add Collaborator.
  2. Beside the name of a collaborator that you want to add, select .
  3. Use the dropdown to set the permission level that the collaborator should have for this project.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for any other collaborators that you want to add.
  5. Select SUBMIT.

Edit or remove collaborator

  1. Select next to collaborator’s name.
  2. To edit the collaborator’s permission level, use the dropdown.
  3. To remove the collaborator from the project, select REMOVE COLLABORATOR.
  4. Select SUBMIT.
