The Online File Manager is a fantastic way to easily share drill files with any associates, clients, or students you may need to see the drill. Think of it as cloud storage with the ability to easily share these files with anyone that has either a license of 3D, a Director’s Viewer, or the Performer’s Practice Tools (student viewer).
Uploading a File to the Online File Manager
In the Interactive menu, choose Online File Manager.
The Online File Manager will open.
You will see your account listed, as it’s tied to your installation of 3D. Select your account in the list and choose Open.
You’ll then be prompted to sign in to the account.
Only the administrator of the online account can upload drill files. The administrator name and password was included in your email at the time of purchase. Choose to sign in as a Registered User or Group, enter your administrator name and password, then choose Sign On.
Once you have signed on to the Online File Manager, the main work area will appear. You could potentially see multiple drills in this window, however they’ll only be in 1 of 2 locations: either in your Documents\Pyware 3D\Drills folder, or uploaded in the online account.
The main layout looks very similar to a spreadsheet. On the far right side, you’ll see a TO DO column. Click in the TO DO column for a drill you wish to upload and choose send a file copy to the internet account. A new window will appear, asking for a description of the file.
The description is required so anyone accessing your Online File Manager will know what they are downloading and/or if the files have been revised recently. Once the description is input, press Send to Online Account. At this point, you can repeat the process for any other drills you would like to upload. When you’re ready to send the drill(s) to the online account, press Save Changes. This will begin the upload process.
