I just want to know the different referencing systems that you use with Onshape.

Usually for the definition of reference codes (Part numbers) a combination of the following parameters is used:
  • Group, IdGroup or Category of the component
  • SubGroup, IdSubGroup or SubCategory of the component
  • Material or IdMaterial
  • Time reference: Year, month, day, etc.
  • Finish, IdFinish, Treatment, IdTreatment
  • Manufacturing process, IdManufacturingProcess
  • Color, IdColor
  • Version, release, Idversion
  • Project, IdProject
  • Customer, IdCustomer
  • Special identifiers:Sheet metal part, weldment profile, etc.
  • A correlative number or code
So people use referencing systems such as:

Please, tell me yours ;-)
