This guide presents a quick overview of how to find and interact with Bommer for Fusion 360. Bommer for Fusion 360 is added as a toolbar panel in the Tools
How to find Bommer
Bommer is primarily located in the Tools toolbar, inside the Design workspace within Fusion 360. Bommer has it's own toolbar panel labeled "BOMMER". By default, the two editing commands Edit bill of materials... and Edit part properties... are pinned for quick access.
The rest of the commands can be found by clicking on the word BOMMER to expand the dropdown pane.
Bommer also has a toolbar pane in the Drawings workspace, under Tools. This lets you access the drawing-specific commands Bommer has to offer, like Export table image.
Still using the old Fusion 360 UI?
If you're still using the old Fusion 360 UI, no worries! You can find Bommer in the Model workspace, next to the Add-Ins button. The toolbar panel and it's contained commands will be the same as described in this article.
Bommer utilizes a mixture of standard Fusion 360 windows and Fusion 360 "palettes", which are embedded web browsers. The different types of windows serve the same purpose, but they behave subtly different, e.g. palettes can stay up when running other commands, but do not always respond to Enter and Escape keystrokes (for OK and Cancel actions, respective), whereas Fusion windows have good keyboard support but may not be as responsive as a web window. You can tell the difference between them by looking at the buttons at the bottom of the window; Bommer palettes have an orange OK button:
whereas standard Fusion 360 windows have grey buttons at the bottom:
Palette windows may also have a help button on the right side of the bottom of the window:
Both work to deliver the functionality of the app to you; we've largely chosen the type of window that let's us do that with the best end-use results.
Positioning and resizing your windows
In both types of windows, you can resize the window by clicking on the bottom right corner of the screen and dragging. For standard Fusion 360 windows, this size is global across all command windows. For palette windows, a per-window size is maintained but currently, reset when you close Fusion. All windows can be docked to Fusion's left, right, top, or bottom edges by dragging the window until you see a green line representing the docked edges.
