Can I create a new Document from a Part Studio.

I created a Part Studio in a Document and I want to use it in other Documents or share just that Part Studio with the Public but not my entire Document.

    No, I tried that but when I open another document I can't find a way to paste it from the clipboard.
  • william_4william_4 Member Posts: 11
    Okay! I finally figured it out. If you select the '+' at the bottom of the new document and select the 'Paste Tab' it will create a new Part Studio with the one you copied to clipboard. Thanks, I was trying to us cntrl V all the time. I guess the Paste Tab won't show up there if you don't have something in the clipboard. :)

    My intent was to start a Document which would contain frequently used parts, things like screws, washers, nuts, etc. When I downloaded a split lock washer from McMaster-Carr I wasn't able to get and axis mate connector because of the way it was made and translated into my document.

    moEngineering are you in Australia? I was just looking at your ajax handbook and noticed it was out of Australia. It's a good reference handbook.

    Thanks for the bolt reference book,

     @BruceBartlett  Thanks very much for the fasteners document. I was surprised and delighted to find it metric :-)

    I am the Australian @billy . Yes it is a good book been using that for years and is a common referance for us Aussie Engineers

    @andrew_troup  Metric is the only way to go. However I still have to use imperial bolts every now then.  

    If people are using the fastsners I doc might have to do some more work to improve it.

    Hello @billy,

    as @BruceBartlett says, he is the Austrailian and  the boltz and nutz document is from him. I just linked them. By the way: I am the Austrian. There are also cows but no kangaroos :smirk:
    But there are things in common: I also work metric and I am thrilled with onshape too.

    best regards

    @Andrew_Troup :hushed:  :#

    @BruceBartlett is there a special reason why you made all nutz and bolts at the same position in the parts studio?

    @moEngineering  good point, maybe it would be better to spread them out so the not on top of each other. Then you could have then all shown. 

    Originally I wanted the 0,0,0 point too be under the head, but with the mate connector system this proberly doesn't mater. Still a work in progress.

    @BruceBartlett thanks for your answer.

    Thats the way I also would have done it before OnShape. Because in all other systems you should take care of that. Here it doesn't matter. Thats pretty cool :)
