    I've learned a lot from Ed (and his team's) presentations at SWW over the years. A bunch of this stuff is general enough that it's transferable from Solidworks to Onshape (since they're both parametric modelers based on D-cubed constraints in sketcher, and the Parasolid 3D kernel). If you haven't seen this stuff, check out the tutorials here (download the full ZIP for these, don't just watch the teaser videos).

    This one on filleting is an updated version of some techniques they did even longer ago. One key thing I learned from them many years ago was the concept of stopping fillets and/or creating transitions by adding "stop blocks" and then deleting faces and filling in the area. 95% of the stuff in this presentation is applicable to Onshape too (exceptions are face-face fillets, and a few other special things).

    What was unclear from the discussion is if DiMonte is using Onshape at all. Any word on this?
