Exports & attributes
My team is currently looking for ways to convert Onshape models into IFC files. There are a few third-party options out there for converting the geometry, but in all cases we need a way to specify which IFC attributes should be attached to which parts.
In theory, it would be convenient to use Onshape's `setAttribute` functionality to mark up the model as needed. The question is, is there any way that these attributes could be preserved on export? Is it even possible to preserve attributes in Parasolid or STP files?
Any insight would be appreciated!
