    Hi Bruce
    Lost the first draft I did of this comment.

    I am a retired person (72) with an interest in model railroads. Want to do drawings for printing later, of passenger car bodies only.
    Can do the basics, but I am not clear the order I should do, and what to use.  Sketch, documents, parts etc ?
    I will do 1/2 of the model and mirror and then shell. Use .jpg to get the shapes Want windows to be a separate part for using on other drawings.  Once the shell is created, how do I make the roof a separate part, or is this done prior to this.
    Is it possible for me to upload some details online and at the same time you access and show me the order etc. or is there a tutorial that I could follow (that I have not found yet.)
    Once I get one model  done I will be ok.
    Could not upload for a few days.

    Your comments much appreciated
    regards
    Charles Harris

    Charles, in case you haven't already, I would strongly recommend checking out our library of video tutorials. This specific category goes over a lot of the common problems that newcomers face: https://www.onshape.com/videos/topic/intro-to-cad. As you mentioned, you can share documents in Onshape quite easily. For more on that process, please check out this video:
     https://www.onshape.com/cad-blog/tech-tip-sharing-in-onshape.

    Generally you will find that many people are very helpful on the forum and if you post a question with a link to your document you will likely have an answer in just a few hours. If you encounter bugs along the way or wish to ask the Onshape Support team a question directly you can submit a ticket thought the feedback tool: Help --> Feedback.
