Adding a textured surface to a model

Is there any way I can add a rough finish (like a sandstone surface or Cura's Fuzzy skin) to a surface within onshape?

    Hey @paul_everington, it is possible to create larger textures like knurls or patterns. See this post as an example Texture. The textures you mentioned are most likely too detailed of textures for Onshape to handle in the part studio.

    Is this only for appearance or are you trying to 3D print the model?

    If you are only going for appearance, Onshape's Render Studio can achieve almost any texture you like. Though you would need either a Pro or Enterprise account to access the beta.

    Thank you Michael.  Yes, it was for 3D printing and I thought it might be overly detailed for onshape to handle.
