    Do that with windows search... Drop the mic
    I should say that though you can do this multiproperty search you can almost do nothing with it's results - just open it. It should be far smarter then it is. But probably Onshape just doesn't want we to export data somewhere else  >:)

    True, but normally I suppose I've always planed on opening it anyway.

    If I were to do a multi-document structure, and wanted to export step files of all the results. That would be painful
    SW still has the advantage there with task scheduler...

    I found a new video on YouTube that you might like. 
    It's a CAD challenge with Autodesk Inventor. 
    Most interesting is the new cloud viewer from Autodesk.
    Amazing to see that traditional CAD software is also moving to the cloud..... but see for yourself: 

    In the description of the video is the link to the cloud viewer.

    On a service call with a customer. Another customer called and asked when they could get a step file. 

    Right now ofcourse. Email link saved me dowload/upload celular data. Nice. Now if only it could send multiple links in one email. :)

    Finally got network licences for SW, so we can share fewer licencees because of how little I use mine in the last couple years.
    Well, looks like you can't obtain a lic over VPN :/   guess I'll have to remember to check out a lic every weekend... lame

    Really SW... really? They should just rename this damn program to DialogueWorks... I swear I spend more time watching these loading bars for every little command rather than modeling anything. I mean there are only 30 unique  parts in this model and 6 drawing sheets... arrrrgg sooo slooow

    Checking out a license for the weekend is so infuriating sometimes...

    Makes you really miss the any-time any-where login...

    I've heard good about Fusion cam, decided to try it out

    Suddenly everything I always hated with installed software came back to me - dozen error messages telling me I'm missing something. Nope it's definitely not me who is missing this stuff  :|

    Half an hour trying to find out why SolidWorks crashes after making some improvements in the code of our Addin ... It broke when I opened the file I was using to do the tests without any reason.

    In the end, I deactivate our Addin, I tried to open the file again and I got the same error... grrrr

    That sample file had been corrupted!!!
    Un saludo,

    So I was changing all the holes to metric in a conveyor and when I came to one of the detail drawings it was purple (indicating the dimension has changed since the last time the drawing was opened) So far so good. But it was still showing 3/8-16 tap... I thought I missed it and went back to the model, but it was metric.

    Just for shits, I put a new hole callout dimension and behold, it is metric.

    F'ing SometimesWorks! this half arse'd crap is what makes me look like an idiot in the shop and cost us when they make a bunch of bad parts! What is the point of parametric detailing if you still have to check every f'ing dimension!
