New Feature: the Puzzle-Inator

Version 1 release of a new feature (yea its a bit buggy I know) to convert your parts into puzzle pieces!
grab it for yourself here

planned improvements:
auto offset surfaces for clearance (if 3d printing)
intersection detection (avoidable if you just change the seed for pseudorandom number generation)
more robustness of course

    Wow, that would be really cool!

    If Onshape had the ability to add textures, we could map images onto the puzzle pieces, making the solving experience even more enjoyable.

    Additionally, it would be great to have a button that randomizes the position of the pieces, adding an element of surprise and challenge.

    And with the ability to share the document and work on the puzzle together in real-time with multiple users, it would be a truly interactive and collaborative experience.

    Let's hope Onshape adds this feature in the future!

    So cool! thanks for sharing. The automatic clearances you mention seem pretty important for this one, but I think a clever box selection can work for now.

    I love that you just did that!

    Will you be working on another pattern other than a grid?   Integrating random or custom flow patterns would make things exciting.
