    Thanks bro! I'm learning a lot.

    I gave the Onshape team some featurescript feedback from a non coders point of view. As usual they were very attentive and might even add examples for everything in the featurescript documentation!

    Usually what happens for me is that I can find what I need in the documentation but I have no idea how to use it. Simple "one line" examples of everything in the documentation would be so useful.

    haha, I like the attitude. Turning "non-coder" into an asset, not a liability. I'm in the same boat. I've been thinking about making a short FS tutorial, which I hope might actually be helped by the fact that I'm pretty new to it so I still remember what about it is confusing starting out.

    I had the same thought as I started a few weeks ago. So I started a list of tutorial ideas. Feel free to use any of them.

    Featurescript tutorial studios:

    - Creating input boxes.
    - Creating variables.
    - How to use queries. Lots of examples.
    - Adding an icon.
    - How to use oppattern.
    - Adding a flip arrow.
    - Adding a manipulator.
    - How to use an array []
    - How to transform.
    - Simple boolean
