I have been searching through he forum and haven't been able to bind anything on the Model Based Dimensioning similar to that in Solid works.  This was a great feature that the shop truly enjoyed having and now that we have changed over to OnShape they are asking for more.  Does anyone know if these features exists to dimension on an isoview?  I have added a picture below to help with what i am after.

    @landon_bayger - Hello! :)

    We fully recognize that this capability is becoming more common in Engineering workflows an absolutely will support it at some point in the future. 

    We have a long list of requests (as you might imagine with so many users), that we are working through. The mechanism we use to determine what we work on next is the 'Feedback' tool for Pro users and the 'Improvement Request' voting for all users here in the forum.

    Please feel free to add your voice so that we can add this at the appropriate time.

    In the meantime, were you aware that you can add comments directly to geometry?
    Simply right click over a face, edge or vertex and select 'add comment'.
    The nice thing about this capability is that whomever views the comment will be returned to the same orientation and zoom as the time you created it. Way cool! :)

    I have put in request for this at some point and you should too - Onshape priorities things according to user requests.  

    In my world, MBD would replace drawings in a heartbeat. Actually I was hoping to see MBD before drawings, but I knew there are many who need the actual print. Hopefully there are enough users to claim MBD so we could see a stab at it rather sooner than later.

    I'm sure we get it at some point and properly done with Onshape style - we can expect something awesome B)

    Any comments on current status @lougallo @PeteYodis ?
