File menu > Save...

File toolbar > Save...

Save the model to the existing file-name.

If the model does not have a file-name, then Save As... dialog-box opens.


This command saves two files with the same file-name, but different file-types. The files are:


CXL is the file-type for the MechDesigner model.


MTD is the file-type for the MotionDesigner motions.

All of the motions name-tabs save to one file-name.

Auto-save [see below], if active, begins only if the model has a file-name.

If you want to save one or all of the motions to a different MTD file-name, then do:

MotionDesigner > File toolbar > 'Save Active Motion' to save one motion
MotionDesigner > File toolbar > 'Save All Motions' to save all of the motions
