hello,

1. add the enclosure into the "project tree" - Components (by drag and drop)
2. create a thermal attribute (thermal type -> Fixed Temperature) and choose the fixed temperature value
3. drag and drop the SmartPart "Planar Thermal Source" onto the enclosure SmartPart
4. for the thermal planar source choose the side of the enclosure that you want and as attachment chose the newly created thermal attribute.

have a nice 2017, Gabriel
