@lougallo Happy Anniversary

Maybe it's a good time to remember everything Onshape have achieved so far ... and all that Onshape still have to do.
You can find 739 Improvement requests here (Some are already completed)  --->
The Top ten most voted (and not completed) are:
  1. Feature Tree Folders
  2. Global variables
  3. Coloring faces
  4. Exploded Views
  5. Sheet Metal Features (partially implemented)
  6. 3D sketching / curves
  7. Make Part Transparent in Assembly
  8. Part Replacement in Assembly
  9. Bring sketches into Drawings (for dimensioning and reference)
  10. Allow Mate limits to be set by physical stops/interfenence
Surely this list does not match the top ten of most user, or with the top ten of Onshape, at least it is very different from what my own top ten list could be:
  1. Full Parametric Sketchs in drawings
  2. Import dimensions & Notes in drawings from the Part Studios / Assemblies
  3. Weldment profiles
  4. Handle identical parts in Part Studios and BOMs (Group by name or part number)
  5. 3D Sketch
  6. Mirror in Assemblies
  7. No-CAD users who can edit properties
  8. Notes in Part Studios and Assemblies (Weld, surface finish, tolerances,...)
  9. Textures and cosmetics threads
  10. More options to create teams & share (hide other members in teams and Share a few tabs of a document)

    Possibly it is not so hard to implement something for an experienced team as to make it work reliably. I recently scrolled Fusion 360 idea station pages and saw request like that : Stop integrating new features and fix what ya got

    Possibly the two things I like most about Onshape's evolution so far are:
    • The pace of updates (About 10 improvements every 3 weeks)
    • The excellent implementation of existing and added features, which do not fail a lot

    Having used various CAD systems I find that OnShape features work well and reliably...no longer do I get a message...'Can't compute that command etc'. OnShape just works and I'm grateful for that alone! Keep it up, please.
