Sheet Metal Model - Extrude - End Type Options
This may be on your to-do list already, but the lack of end type options in the "Sheet metal model - Extrude" feature is the biggest limitation I noticed when testing OnShape for potential use in our company. The standard Extrude feature has Blind, Symmetric, Up to next, Up to face, Up to part, Up to vertex, and Through all options whereas the "Sheet metal model - Extrude" feature only has Blind and Symmetric. Drawing a profile sketch and extruding is the fastest way to model a linear sheet metal part, and the lack of end type options makes it harder to use in a multi-part studio scenario where length needs to be based on other parts. Especially when that studio will need dimensions adjusted or configured.
