    Have you had a collaboration session with anyone yet in Onshape?  Have you used FollowMe mode?  There is a number of things that we will add to improve our collaboration cues as we go.  Good to see more companies addressing these needs.  The big difference is collaboration can be done by all participants.  Markup and other chat tools will improve this as well.  Thanks for posting this..

    Hello @3Dexter,

    this is still possible with Onshape...

    Have a look at the latest Webinar at 37:06.

    best regards

    Didn't know about FollowMe! It is different than what was shown in the original post, though. Its also pretty darn slow. Original post is more like Google Documents, where two people are editing the same document at the same time, seamlessly, fluidly, quickly, adjectively.

    @Onshaper could you please elaborate on what you mean by FollowMe being slow?  Was there lag in the camera rotation/cursor motion or was there something else?  If it wasn't just temporary connection trouble, could you please file a feedback request so we can investigate the performance issue?  Thanks!

    @onshaper I think what you are seeing is the delay associated with GoTo Meeting. I just watched the video and agree that is looks slow, but that's the video feed. Try follow me and let me know what you think about the responsiveness

    @onshaper: you can open two concurrent sessions of Onshape side-by-side to evaluate "FollowMe"  - bearing in mind that the information being shared is round-tripping via the www, it seems to me quite a realistic simulation.
