The guide is designed to be brief and yet covering all needed steps on how to enable the 3D Stereo Plugin for MSC Adams. This is a one-time setup and not needed to be repeated once setup properly.
I. Prepare the 3D Stereo Plugin
1) Please download and install moreStereo3D.
2) Start moreStereo3D.
II. Configure the 3D Stereo Plugin for MSC Adams
3) Right click the moreStereo3D Tray Icon (next to your system time) and select “more3D Stereo Enabler”
4) Click the “Locate known Apps” Button. The more3D stereo enabler will search the folders “C:\Program Files” and “C:\Program Files (x86)” for your MSC Adams installation and you can apply the 3D Stereo Plugin for MSC Adams View.
In case you have installed MSC Adams Viewa non-standard installation directory, please continue with step 5). If the more3D Stereo Enabler found your MSC Adams installation properly, please continue on step 8)
5) Click the “Add Application” Button.
6) Navigate to your MSC Software directory. The complete path could look close to this:
6a) Open the subfolder “Adams_x64” for the 64-Bit version of MSC Adams View
