Can feature script write to file?

RootentityRootentity Member Posts: 21 ✭✭
I would like to play around with making a simple CAM feature script for drilling operations.  I think that the simplest way to integrate CAM into onshape would be as seperate operations in the feature tree that can be reordered. It would save on making an entirely new and seperate ui, but it's a useless endevour if the gcode can't be downloaded.

Can feature script create or write to a file/tab?

    Joshua - FeatureScript cannot write to a file, but it CAN write tonthr console - just use println(foo);
    when the feature has regenerated, you will have text that can be cut and pasted into a text file. 
    That fle can alsovthrn be uploaded (or 'updated') into a tab for versioning and storage. 
    Totally doable :)
