MOTM June 2017

I am not sure if the MOTM is still going on (due to lack of participation maybe) but I am going to start one for this month. I find it a nice thread to see what others are doing with Onshape.

Following the same guidelines as previous months......

Attached is my entry. Nothing special. It is a sample project I did to help me getfamiliarized with the sheet metal capabilities of Onshape. Its a public document of a NEMA based sheet metal enclosure. We make many of these at my shop in various sizes. This could be a useful document for Onshape designers here to start with if you have not created a NEMA enclosure before. The enclosure is made out of 12GA 316 with a 12GA 316 back plate and 10GA 316 mounting tabs. No hardware has been added to the assembly (trying to keep it basic and a starting point to be customized later) All parts were created in one part file. I used the assembly file to make an exploded view. A drawing attached with a BOM created in google sheets. Along with a BOM the drawing contains your basic views of the fully assembled enclosure along with separate sheets for each part with its corresponding flat pattern. This could be a good document to use to try out some of the CAM and nesting Apps from the Onshape App store.

Hope someone will find this Onshape document useful and help them with a project.


Lets keep this MOTM going.

Thank you

    I made a new thread for showing models, I will reward all models/screenshots with 'answer' points on forum so they stick on top of list and discussion can live in same thread to keep it alive in the forums.
