  • @fluvio_lobo_fenoglietto I think Billy's point was that that is how a URL is formed with a configuration as one of the parameters.  See "configuration=" section
  • @simon_dwyer There is a video example in that help page that Morgan shared, under Desktop and then Video Example.  Here is some additional documentation about all of our relations (which is the sort of thing you are trying to get at; motion in mat…
  • And here is another example that we put together for the release of reference parameters: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/a5566bc4a7c123d4958fd925/w/de9e3b016a0232b5b8ec183d/e/24063c0b982f318921f90305
  • @fredrik_1 A generally good workflow here would to start the sketch with newSketch or newSketchOnPlane, then you can sketch points with skPoint.  If your csv is already 2d, you're in the clear, but if your points are in 3d and you need to get them…
  • @fredrik_1 FYI, If you go and look at that thread that Tim mentions, I have updated that custom feature with our new reference parameter workflow.  That feature should be all up-to-date on current FeatureScript best practices, and may actually do …
  • I have updated the custom feature mentioned on this thread to use reference parameters: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/f8191d0fd7fe9a488e8dcd15/w/29be675d29fa9f017b6fed6e/e/7771e6ce4b6bb8ac76566213 https://cad.onshape.com/FsDoc/imports.html#refer…
  • ^ Since that discussion we have also introduced reference parameters, so that you do not need to hard code a reference to the csv file, but can actually reference the file by taking it in as a parameter in the feature dialog. See this documentation …
  • @craig_townsend418 There is a link below the image so that you can look through all the steps Lana took to get to the final product.  Click on "Like this?"
  • @Raphael_Massicotte Operations generally do not work on sheet metal, so opOffsetFace and opMoveFace would not really be expected to work.  The implementation of our sheet metal features lies at the feature level itself, so moveFace should work for…
  • @POC You can use the Move Face feature to make edits like this: https://cad.onshape.com/help/Content/moveface.htm The top one is easiest, you can move face using Up To Entity as the End Type, and select the side face of the bend, or one of the ve…
  • @declan_oller I think that a better solution here is to just make the sketches into sheets using offset surface with an offset of 0, and then using a uniform scale transform to grow or shrink those sheet bodies. https://cad.onshape.com/help/Conte…
  • @john_mcclary I've looked into it and without a specific reference frame, the moments of inertia are calculated about the center of gravity of the selected instance(s).
  • @Transistor Please post the URL of your document along with your question so that people can go into the doc and play around with it. Detailed instructions here: https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/9107/forum-post-checklist
  • @kuon We also have a custom feature which combines PCB imports into one part: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/9a9b81d17d4b69e58ad9b0b0/v/c253688ad8add5efd222a709/e/3152191074466a8b45231663 Just click the "+" button in the toolbar of that docume…
  • Hi @christopher_lloyd090 We have typing shortcuts like this for size, but not for position. Here is a gif I put together for you that shows how to do the things you are asking: First I am clicking two positions to place a rectangle.  After pla…
  • Here is the help page for the Transform feature: https://cad.onshape.com/help/Content/transform.htm As John mentions, one of its options is to copy in place.
  • Looks like it was answered here: https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/11583/constrain-midpoint-of-a-line-to-a-line#latest with a helpful gif
  • @billy2 The code block should be fine as long as you create the code block first and then paste into it.  If you paste and then highlight and click code, it looks bad.
  • @cheryl_krampitz ctrl + right click is also a pan. Here is a guide to our view manipulation: https://cad.onshape.com/help/Content/moving.htm You can also go check that your user settings haven't been changed.  If you click on your name in the to…
  • @AngelArs All of our webinars are recorded (along with many other videos) and posted to our video library: https://www.onshape.com/videos Webinars specifically can be found by searching the video library, or going directly to: https://www.onshape.…
  • @tommie_berry We don't expose mesh vertices to FeatureScript.  If you do a qOwnedByBody on a mesh, you'll notice that a mesh is basically just one composite face: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/f8b3df73f921b5ed6b03e0a3/w/180340618b58cdd57349a2…
  • @billy2 has shown off a number of motorcycle parts made by scanning the part of the motorcycle and then modeling based off of the scans: https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/11483/turn-signal-design https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/10783/fender…
  • @adam_peasley Here is a help page about importing into Onshape: https://cad.onshape.com/help/Content/uploadfiles.htm You can import into a new document on the documents page by pressing the "Create" button and then "Import files" or "Import from"…
  • @mark_cunningham It looks like you could use sketch text and then extrude with draft?  Then create a base plate below? https://cad.onshape.com/documents/79e5850722bf205d7fac2cf5/w/03d3c357211643aa6731047c/e/7a01b7923cd7c168922f888f
  • @StephenG We have a number of hits collected internally for selective merging, but I took a look and there doesn't appear to be an improvement request yet.  Please post one on the Improvement Requests section of this forum!
  • @chuck_miller Hello! The easiest way to add a custom feature to your toolbar is to find and navigate to the document that contains the custom feature: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/cfec40e2b66bb4ddb2f3414b/w/24132f252a02825eb0606641/e/c8e6602f…
  • @tony_soares459 Maybe this is a good workflow for you: * Start a second sketch * Use an implicit mate connector as the sketch plane, flipping the primary axis, and rotating to the appropriate clocking to horizontal and vertical be what you expec…
  • Hi @Henk_de_V ! You're right! I did not read your question closely enough, and missed that you were asking about doing this in the Assembly.  I'm glad my answer could help a bit, and please submit an improvement request (In the "Improvement Request…
  • @bryan_lagrange Maybe as a workaround you could set up a relation (Gear, Rack and Pinion, Screw, or Linear) between the two different systems?  You could suppress the relation while actually working, and unsuppress when you want to show a client o…
