I've tried SimScale and have been less than impressed thus far. Maybe I need to try it again.
I also like Simsolid, very innovative.
No wonder parts have been off every once in a while...
Mystery solved... SW still sucks
Today we had a few new customers fly in to meet our company and hopefuly bring us more work.
They are mostly interested in our spiral chutes, which is the only product we have where we do it exclusivly in Onshape. Because of the speed and accuracy.
Anyways after a long demo in the shop with our demo chutes. My boss hints to them we can draw up anything you need just give us a few parameters and he'll have a drawing for you before we get back to the conference room. So I raised an eyebrow and said challenge accepted. They spit out a few numbers and I casually walked to my desk and calmly crunched them into a spreadsheet. Took the output of that and coppied that into a custom featurescript. Hit commit, went to take a leak while Onshape crunched the numbers.
Came back and did a couple tweaks. Figured I still have plently of time, added a few brakets and chased holes.
Created an assembly drawing with a few dims and print. They walk into the conference room as I pull the print from the printer.
I never could be so cocky with Solidworks. I doubt I could have pack and go'd that fast.
Then we did 3 more revisions at the conference table while they talked.
Thanks Onshape, you made us look GOOD.

How many lines was the FeatureScript, and how long did it take to generate?
Then a few parametric voodo tricks that really only work this flawlessly in Onshape. (I've tried some of these tricks in SW, and it breaks references too easy)
In the end, it is a couple minor tweaks now. I owe a lot to Onshape's support especially lou and pete. They were johnny on the spot with bug fixes and even threw in a few modeling tricks I would never have guessed. Speeding up the model and making it very stable.
The affect is different depending on which surface you select to rotate, some are fine.
The center of rotation is even in a weird place off some surfaces... Solidworks...
Had to record with a cell phone, because the screen capture frame rate didn't show the ghosting affect.
In a german forum Autodesk Inventor is often called DIVA.
Especially when it is making trouble
How do you work without power, do you have a laptop? And how do get internet if the router has no power or do you use mobile internet?
Yea, said ef-it eucher time
If only there were some sort of cloud based CAD that didn't need file management...
I think there is! Have you looked at software called 'fusion' which is kind of cloud ish based cad ish software
(with all respect to fusion users, I'm sure it's piece of software - you can too)
That said it does have some good points.
Why does it say unsolvable when it is solved!
OH figured it out... I changed the stock width to .75" which made the construction line to the origin for centering the sketch zero-length...
I guess I got used to Onshape just not caring if sketch lines are zero length, and just working as you expect.
Begin the download and go home...
Then spend a few hours in the morning installing...
I hate this part...
