How to find the Part files used as examples in the lessons?

Ronan_McAllisterRonan_McAllister Member Posts: 7 ✭✭

I've been going through various lessons on learn.onshape.com, and I find that very often they will show how to use a feature with an example Part Studio file.
However there never seems to be an option to open that file myself and have a play around. Are these files not publicly available?

I learn by doing, so would really like the opportunity to explore the example files myself!

For example, this lesson has loads of good surface models ( https://learn.onshape.com/learn/video/surface-modeling-tips-and-tricks-in-onshape ), but I can't find them anywhere by searching the filename in the "Public" section of OnShape. Is there a "made by OnShape" section that I'm failing to find?

    The example documents are available if you are in a course and begin an exercise. We have made them public so you can copy them and work though them with guided practice. For surfacing check out:
    It seems you might be looking at stand-alone videos. We have not included links on those pages to the documents used in the videos. Hope this helps!
