Let's talk about... money.
With all the respect to the price point (cause compare to solidworks or autodesk is cool), and it is a great pice of software. But, the enter point for someone who would like to design something and maybe sell it later and also don't want to throw quite a lot of bucks and share his ideas with everyone. I don't understand why there are no low level pricing options for some guys who just start, or really small one guy companies. It could be like dunno, 19.99/mo but you can have 1-3 prv project and have to under 30K/Y or something. Take a look on what company called Allegorythimic done with pricing point for their software for smaller companies/indies, basically bellow 100K/Y. I really, really like Onshape, but further I go with the idea I have and some chances to sell the product someday I think now I am forced to switch to fusion360 cause it finally get metal sheet and is FREE for commercial for 1st Y/100K. So really guys you need better pricing point for new guys. Metal sheets and 3d printing comes cheaper and cheaper and home prototyping become more popular.
