Hey guys,  

New question.  First I would like to say thanks for all of those that have responded to my various questions over the past few months, love the community support!
So, my question is how do you draw a sphere in OnShape?

Thanks in advance!

    You can easily create a sphere by sketching a half profile of a circle, then revolving it with the revolve feature. The reason it has to be a half circle is because otherwise, the revolve will fail due to being self intersecting.

    If you want to get creative you can also draw square of 1 inch. Extrude it by 1 inch and fillet four faces with 0.5 inch to get a sphere
