Stream Deck Icon Library for Onshape

Hi,

For those who have (or thinking about getting) a Stream Deck, I've put together a library of icons in case anyones needs/wants it to build shortcuts (see attached).

I use them for folders (sketch and assembly) and hotkeys (show/hide planes, extrude, fillet, front view, back view etc).

I've compiled more icons than there are actual shortcuts but i'm optimistic that one day we'll be able to map the rest.

I'm relatively new to Onshape so there may be more icons to grab, please let me know especially if they have shortcuts to use with them.

Anyways, here's the link the Onshore help page for shortcuts, use them to map your hot keys: https://cad.onshape.com/help/Content/shortcut_keys.htm

And here's how I've configured my Stream Deck.

The onshape logo is a website function and opens up the app in your browser.


The sketch icon above is used for a folder, and the hotkeys for the default keyboard shortcuts can be found within.


And the same for assembly


enjoy!

    I had to look this up...

    https://www.elgato.com/en/stream-deck-mk2

    There are a bunch of LCD button controllers which can be customized to look how you want and trigger the actions you want.



    So the frustrating thing is I don't think there is a way to trigger anything which doesn't have an official Onshape keyboard shortcut. Am I missing something?

    Still very interesting.

    You are correct, so far I only use Stream Deck buttons for the shortcuts that currently exist in Onshape (as per my screen shots), but I've build a larger library of (icons of) functions in anticipation that some day they'll be assigned with a shortcut or when custom shortcuts become available.

    @S1mon
    If you want to create a stream deck button for any feature, its possible.
    You can create more complex mappings that do a series of button presses, so you can combine the feature search (alt-c) and then have the name of the feature typed out, and the enter key pressed.

    @edy80y this is awesome! but I think you forgot to add the link to the icon pack...

    @caden_armstrong yes that's exactly the trick I've been using - initially via keyboard macro control with Synapse on my (now defunct) Razer laptop. I've been playing with this recently: 

    The Sparkfun Qwiic Pro micro USB-C with the ATmega32U4 is easily programmed to send whatever keystrokes (including the ALT-C trick). I've been experimenting with the various inputs as seen in the photo.  The 4 keys in a row are my standard views, the buttons and joystick are secret works-in-process 🕵️

    Using the Alt + C trick from @GregBrown, you can use macros to start any feature.

    I use these to get it done:
    Place the .ahk file in your startup apps. Then you will be able to use these hotkeys combined with your Stream Deck. How it works is it opens up the Onshape search bar with Alt + C, then it enters the name of the feature, then presses enter.

    Here is the hotkey example script I currently use, see the attached zip or the code below, you will need AutoHotkeys in order to run them:

    ; This script was created using Pulover's Macro Creator

    ; www.macrocreator.com


    ;Key commands

    ;

    ;Shift ^

    ;Alt !

    ;Ctrl +



    #NoEnv

    SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%

    CoordMode, Mouse, Screen

    SendMode Input

    #SingleInstance Force

    SetTitleMatchMode 2

    #WinActivateForce

    SetControlDelay 1

    SetWinDelay 0

    SetKeyDelay -1

    SetMouseDelay -1

    SetBatchLines -1



    ^!t::

    table:

    Send, {LAlt Down}{c}{LAlt Up}

    Send, table

    Send, {Enter}

    Return


    ^!d::

    derive:

    Send, {LAlt Down}{c}{LAlt Up}

    Send, derive

    Send, {Enter}

    Return


    ^!m::

    measurevalue:

    Send, {LAlt Down}{c}{LAlt Up

    Send, measurevalue

    Send, {Enter}

    Return


    ^!b::

    boolean:

    Send, {LAlt Down}{c}{LAlt Up}

    Send, boolean

    Send, {Enter}

    Return


    ^!f::

    freeformspline:

    Send, {LAlt Down}{c}{LAlt Up}

    Send freeform spline

    Send, {Enter}

    Return


    ^!L::

    linearPattern:

    Send, {LAlt Down}{c}{LAlt Up}

    Send linearPattern

    Send, {Enter}

    Return

    Sorry if this seems like a dumb question.  But I am just starting out with both OnShape and the Stream deck.  I downloaded the 2 zip files, but I'm not sure how to get the hot keys or the icons assigned to the buttons in the stream deck. is there a good tutorial for getting your setup (or one like it) working that I can watch on YouTube or something?  Thanks!

    I know this thread is a little old, but...

    I've attached a profile for the 3x5 StreamDeck with the functions I use most.

    This is awesome, and I thank you for your efforts!  Not to look a gift horse in the mouth but...  Would be even better if you could/would share the actual exported Stream Deck  .streamDeckProfile file which would contain not only the icons, but the keystrokes and hotkeys as well.
    I have been working on this as well, perhaps we could collaborate, split the work?  Msg me!

    This reminds me of MEDUSA (the CAD https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MEDUSA) where you needed to select icons on your DESK ;) to get it to do your bidding..

    Good times!

    I keep reading this as steam deck and wondering who's doing CAD on a handheld gaming device.

    @Ste_Wilson no touch support for browsers yet, so it sucks. But it works!
