Allow FeatureScript to produce Sketches

dave_cowdendave_cowden Member, Developers Posts: 445 ✭✭✭
In today's system, FeatureScripts can create sketches, and use them as needed to create/modify the context. Sketches not deleted appear visible, and the geometry is user-selectable.

However, the geometry does not appear as a sketch, but rather as simply geometric entities.  Accordingly, the user cannot use any Onshape functionality that requires a sketch as input.  Examples include:

   * extruding
   * exporting to DXF

It would be highly useful if FeatureScripts could register output sketches with the context, so that the sketches appear in the feature tree, and are selectable as sketches. I would suggest functionality in which the sketches appear as 'children' to the parent FS feature in the tree.
