Click + to create a new model:
Model creation button the Model Hub screen
This displays the New Model popup where you select a model template to base your model on. The name (1) you specify for the model will become the name of the directory where the model.json file is stored. The model path (2) specifies the absolute path where the model directory will be created. This path defaults to ~/Documents/PerceptiLabs/Default.
New Model popup
You can create the model within the (default) project directory or you can create it in any other location.
Upon completing the popup, PerceptiLabs will create the directory with the model.json file on disk, and the model will be listed on the Model Hub screen. PerceptiLabs will also automatically save the project that contains the model. Any time you save the model, PerceptiLabs will update the model's model.json file.
You can import an existing model by specifying a local directory or GitHub repo where a model.json file is located. This can be performed by clicking the import button on the Model Hub (shown in the screenshot below) or by selecting File > Import Model and specifying the location.
You will need Git installed before you can import from GitHub.
