Step 2: Download OpenHornet Models
The OpenHornet CAD models can be imported to Fusion360 directly from the GitHub at https://github.com/jrsteensen/OpenHornet. Just scroll down on the main page until the links are displayed.
Figure 3 – Fusion360 Model Links
Each of these links contain all the required models for every part of the current version of the project. The models are split into 6 different subgroups. These are:
|This contains the complete top level assembly for OpenHornet.
|Upper Instrument Panel (UIP)
|This contains the models for the UIP.
|Lower Instrument Panel (LIP)
|This contains the models for the LIP.
|Left Console (LC)
|This contains the models for the LC.
|Right Console (RC)
|This contains the models for the RC.
|Center Tub (CT)
| This contains the models for the CT.
Clicking one of these links will take you to an Autodesk Fusion archive page. Some pages, especially the Top Level model may appear to have trouble loading or show an error outright. This is normal for a project of this size and is a Fusion 360 limitation, not an OpenHornet limitation. (See figure 4.)
Figure 4 – Large Assembly Error Page in A360 Web Interface
Click the “Open in Fusion 360” button in the top right of the web interface.
Be patient! The site may show another error stating “Fusion 360 not detected.” This is an error related to the browser not being able to detect your new install. You can open Fusion360 in the background or try a different browser to fix this. If the problem persists, reach out on the #Fusion360 channel on the OpenHornet discord server.
Once the files are transferred to your Fusion360 install, a pop-up windows will ask where you would like to upload the models in your personal account.
It is recommended that you create a dedicated “Project” to store all the models and an individual folder for each of the OpenHornet assemblies. You can create both projects and folders by clicking “Change Location” near the bottom of the screen. We recommend not naming it “OpenHornet” in case you later become an OpenHornet contributor, so it doesn’t conflict with direct access.
