PTC CEO here.  I've tried to stay out of your way since we acquired Onshape, but behind the scenes I've been in 10,000 conversations about Onshape since we acquired the company in 2019!   I do hope you appreciate what a good home for Onshape PTC has been.  I think we have delivered on every promise we ever made.  We have retained the team, preserved the brand and culture and strategy, funded the business aggressively, shared technologies like simulation and soon generative (which will be in the free version, BTW), shared organizational capabilities like our EDU program that drove explosive Onshape growth in education, wrote the checks necessary to acquire technologies to accelerate Onshape capabilities in Rendering and ECAD and CAM and PLM/Arena, pushed for a more aggressive free use program, and helped develop big picture thinking like pioneering Agile Product Development, i.e., develop hardware like software.  Nearly 4 years into it, the Onshape band is still together at PTC, kicking butt, and feeling good about their new home.  I hope you are feeling good, too!

I think something magical is happening here.  Come to LiveWorx and learn about it, meet the people driving it, and meet your fellow passionate users.  Forums like this are great, but no match for keynotes and breakout sessions and cocktail parties and Dierks Bentley!  Hope to see you in Boston in a few weeks!  :-)

    Looking forward to seeing some of you there. I would also like to invite those of you attending to come and check out my session at LiveWorx on Tuesday at 1:00, [CA1203B] Customize your CAD with FeatureScript. I'll be talking about the incredible impact FeatureScript has had on our business, and I think anyone in any role will walk away with something valuable.

      Hello Jim, 
     Thank You. Many, if not all of us appreciate very much how you have stayed out of the way, and yet poured so much into Onshape. Keep up the excellent work. I would love to be at LiveWorx in person however it looks like I'll be attending virtually. I wish you all the best and looking forward to LiveWorx and the future of Onshape.

    Too rich for my blood, but the good news? There's a virtual option, as well as on-demand options after it concludes!
