Beginners Tutorial for Onshape

aaron_digullaaaron_digulla Member Posts: 8
I started writing a beginners tutorial for Onshape and finished the first post: http://blog.pdark.de/2015/04/13/getting-started-with-onshape-sketches/

In my tutorial, I try to include many topics like "why isn't this working????", helping people to shape/shift their thinking as well as following a real-world example which readers can relate to.

    NICE! Should be great help for people without cad history or coming from sketchup..

    You might wan't to add keyboard shortcuts as they are a big help from the beginning and should be mounted to 'muscle memory'. I would consider including few basic shortcuts like d for dimension, n for normal view in sketching and space for deselect.
    Also the use of 'rotating cube' might be important if turning model with mouse feels weird in the beginning.

    Great work.
