    There was discussion about this earlier and 8000 parts wasn't a problem for even cheap chromebooks..

    @kesava_prasad_t_d That's really a loaded question.  There are more factors than just number of parts; just for one example - the number of total faces in the model would be a factor for graphics computation.  Also, things in this realm are probably going to be dynamic in nature with improvements to all the pieces at play, both in Onshape and on local hardware.  Meaning... even if you could boil it down to a pat answer, that answer will change quite a bit as we roll forward, and maybe even quickly.  My own thinking is that this platform is much more scalable at a really low cost, compared to the current desktop based systems.  As a little thought experiment:  Just imagine where this platform could be 2 years from now, 5 years, 10 years...  wow.

    Yes I understood how you are looking at this problem. I am dreaming of a day when a company like Boeing would start using Onshape.
