File menu > Save...

File toolbar > Save...

Save the model to the existing file-name.

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

Auto-save (see below) begins only if the model has a file-name.


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


CXL is the file-type for a MechDesigner model.


MTD is the file-type for MotionDesigner motions.

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

If you want to save one motion to a MTD file-name, then do:

MotionDesigner > File toolbar > Save Active Motion to save one motion

File menu > Save as

Edit menu > Application-Settings > General Tab > File Options:  Auto-Save

Save Active Motion (MotionDesigner)
