The "nPower" menu should appear on the Main
toolbar and the Power Solids
ToolBar should also appear. The ToolBar buttons are from left to right:
PowerFillet, PowerShell, PowerBoolTree, PowerSurfaceFillet, PowerFaceEdit .
NOTE: The first time you run you
will need to install the plug-in using
the Rhino Plug-in Manager. Select the "Tools/Plugin Manager" from the
main menu and select the "Load" button in the Dialog. There should be a
"PowerSolids*.rhp" file in your ".../Rhinoceros/Plug-ins" directory that can
be selected for loading.
NOTE 2: To see the ToolBar you will need to load the PowerSolids toolbar.
From the main menu select "Tools/Toolbar Layout...". In the "Toolbars" dialog
"Import" and select the Power Solids toolbar "PowerSolids.tb" which resides
in the c:/Program Files/Rhinoceros 3.0/Plug-ins directory or what ever directory
where your version of Rhino 3.0 lives . If you have the tool bar loaded and
don't see the tools, make sure there is a check mark in the PowerSolids
toolbar on the bottom window when you select PowerSolids in the top window
of the Toolbar Layout dialog.
NOTE 2: This plug-in is an "auto-load" plug-in. This means that you will not
see the menu until you invoke the command the first time during the session
and force the plug-in to load. You can do this by typing one of the commands
into the Rhino command line "PowerFillet", "PowerShell", etc. or
selecting one of the commands from the Power Solids Toolbar.
