New Video: The Featurescript skill every serious Onshape user should have

Evan_ReeseEvan_Reese Member Posts: 979 PRO
Hi all, I finally got around to recording a video showing how to use Featurescript to make global-ish variables, and then riffing on that concept. The goal here is to help non-code people use a powerful workflow for making your designs super updatable, and also to trick them into learning some Featurescript along the way. It's pretty long, but if you're here on the forums at the end of a Monday, maybe you're just into this stuff like I am.

    Thanks Evan for your effort,

    I love to work with  Featurescript , your lesson is very helpfull because of lack on other examples, the only way learning Featurescript is hands_on !
    I would like to know how you designed the structure for "FractalStockHardwareChartFeature" can I download a copy of the code in your video,
    it would be very helpfull to get a inside vieuw.

    Many thanks

    Thanks! I plan to make the next video series about how to make a hardware library like ours, and will include some code with that.

    Evan,
    Your video was helping a lot.
    May thanks on forehand for your help
    .All support will help me and others  understanding and working with Featurescript which is very tough for a newcomer.
    To understand all functions and how to handle them, we need examples as you was given inyour video.
    Best regards
