How do I place a grid layout in onshape?

PIETERPIETER Member Posts: 1
I'm currently designing eyewear, problem is that i can't get any of my dimensions in, I want to also curve the shape of the glasses to match the face of the client. Do I add extra plane's or do I draw in the grid manually via the sketch tool?

    No Grid in the sketcher. Also no way to get hand sketches or vector based 2d geometry into the sketcher. You could translate a 3d models in to a  new part studio and project lines from this using the "use" feature but no good if starting from scratch. I'd manual draw a grid or a set of points, followed by lines and arcs or splines. You may need to add planes to get the 3d shape but I tend to avoid having too many planes and work off sketches.  image
