Importing surface files
I copied this out of the Product Feedback 'NON-PRISMATIC STUFF topic. Thanks for posting Mr Bartlett! Very encouraging to see success with file import AND non planer features.brucebartlett said:Bit different to your blinker but I recently did a little project for a guy who wanted to strap stuff onto a cow, I got a cow model off the web (that wasn't as easy to get in Onshape as it should have been) and in then thought I'd hit a brick wall on the freeform straps with no 3d sketcher but I managed to use the 3d spline to pick points and get roughly what I wanted and quickly. Not a replacement for a 3d sketcher but certainly good work around for some things. I just thought I'd share.
I would like to hear the process for bringing a multi-surface body into Onshape. For parts that do not knit on import, I found the only thing is fix in Solidworks and then transfer to OS with Parasolid.
Hopefully @brucebartlett or you others will share tips & tricks....
