I want to compare mechanical systems across two models. How do I do a "save as" so I can start with the model I already created and then play with changing parameters? When I try to give the model a new project name and do a save, it only allows me to save it over the model I had open.

You will be able to "save as" if you change the "Project Name" field in the "Project" tab, "General" section.

Alternatively, you can also download the .JSON file to your computer, then upload that file to restore a state. This is also the current method for sharing projects between users.

A related tip: you can be running Sketchbox in two (or more) web browser tabs at the same time. This is currently the easiest way to visualize and compare results for different HVAC concepts.
