Description of the different steps
- Select your part(s).
- For automatic fixing, go to the Fix >> AutoFix. You can monitor the status of your part from the Part Pages >> Part Fixing Info. If needed, do a second run of automatic fixing.
- For semi-automatic fixing, go to the Fix >> Fix Wizard. The Fix Wizard allows you to control the fixing steps. There are pages dedicated to fixing specific error types, and the wizard will give you advice that you can follow by clicking on Follow Advice. Alternatively, you can do a Combined Fix, which allows you to leave out certain fixing steps to do them manually. You can always refer to the Diagnostics page to follow the status of your part.
- For manual fixing, you can either use the tools available in the Fix ribbon, or you can use the options under Manual in the Fix Wizard pages.
