Alternative method of creating the Gyrosphere Tutorial for High School Students and below
I ran into a problem using the tutorial provided by OnShape for the Gyrosphere. In particular, the Shell tool didn't seem to work on a sphere. As a workaround, I created a half-sphere and Shelled it. I then Mirrored the hollow hemisphere and continued the tutorial from that point on. I have found several other tools that don't seem to work as advertised and don't know if it is because of my lack of experience since I am new to Onshape, or a software glitch with Onshape. I have attached a complete tutorial to this document should anyone else want to use it. I am interested in working with any other teachers working with Onshape since we will be on distance learning in the Fall. Most of my students do not have a computer powerful enough to run other CAD programs.
