Texture (New Custom Feature!)

https://cad.onshape.com/documents/46897a2d60ade8dbb04077f3/w/23398bd91a932d1432a5d204/e/201138fdd8eee8cfcd2dcac1

With Texture, you can create solid body textures by clicking a surface or face.
Use pre-loaded textures, or use your own custom texture, (See the tutorial gifs below).

This feature is a derivation of Surface Pattern by @maximilian_schommer (Onshape), Thanks Max! 

Not familiar with custom features? How to add a custom feature to your toolbar

If you have any texture ideas you would like me to add to the standard library selection, feel free to comment below.
Let me know what you think! All feedback is appreciated.
























How to create a custom texture:

  • Create a new part studio
  • Add configurable variables x, y, and z
  • Place the very center bottom of your part on the Top plane origin
  • Constrain the x, y, and z of your part with the configurable variables x, y, and z.








Adding custom parameters:

  • Inside your texture studio, create a configurable variable with any valid name that you like
  • When you go to use your custom texture, click the "Add configuration" button
  • Check the "Custom parameter" check box
  • Type the ID of your custom parameter exactly
