  • Thanks for the little support. I'm also suprised such an advanced service like Onshape is missing a major movement in civil engineering it could so well support. I guess I just make an improvement suggest
  • Ok, that's a workaround. thanks
  • Hi Michael, thanks for the hint with the unfix. I didn't see that in the menu. Maybe my assembly is kind of stocked, but I cannot move it with the triad. However the major issue is that the center of my construction is hollow and I didn't find a s…
  • Hi Jake, actually you're right. I introduced the part studio with the major piece as whole, now I will try to do the same after splitting it up! Thanks for the hint!
  • @Jake_Rosenfeld Thanks for the hint, now I can use it, it's really a great feature*. May I bother you with a follow up question: I now can make the elements that I need, but I end up with an 'opposite' problem: As I still want to construct the w…
  • Hi Neil, That's exactly what I tried to do. I activated all sketches, so they were visible and I did use select other, but I could not catch them. If it will be reoccuring I will share the design with you.
  • Hei guys, I found the solution just in one of the videos - the use command. I don't think I had this when I was designing this. That's the key: you want to use the same geometry in different planes. but so far, I had to redesign it manually, as th…
  • Hei Neil, I guess I gave the answer on my own. Only after extruding the second part, the geometry of overlap is showing. If you then want the to parts to touch in another plane as the sketch was designed, you can probably only do this by creating th…
  • Short follow up question: I don't  find the variable Icon in my Part studio, neither in assembly. Is it possible that this feature is not backward compatible?
  • Hi Jake, I could successfully adapt your pattern, great stuff! Just one little question: I searched where the variables that you defined will be used and I found by chance that clicking in the fields where the value appears that it is referenced wit…
  • Hi Jake,  Super! Worked perfect and easy! Right place, right time ( even Dr. John would agree ;-) Thanks a lot
  • Hi Jake, that's terrific, thanks a lot! Now I just have to figure out to use it on my parts...
  • Thanks for the hint. Just one follow up question. I have to split an extrude into 40 subparts.  is there a way to separate it easily (that is without creating 40 planes and splits) into 40 subparts? Maybe  there is a function or a feature script fro…
  • The trick with the helpline made coincident with 2 planes is cool, thanks! I think it would be worth to be added in the documentation where I searched quite a while without finding anything

  • Hm, I don't know what I should say. First I would like to thank you for your extended answers to my questions. Some of the explanations or effects remain ambiguous. Maybe my question was not clear enough inspite of the effort I spent to visualise i…
  • Thanks Neil for the hints, however the behaviour is not yet clear to me. And sorry John, I agree my question is a bit too abstract.  What was not clear was your words: "you will probably need to select the regions rather than the whole sketch" The q…
  • @Glen Sorry if I was not clear. I want to build the other part around the other not in the other. Eg to fasten the cube on the plane... I tried what you said, but then the 2 parts were both solid, I wanted the new part going around the other one (as…
  • Note: I did use the section view, but when selecting either of the planes the other was still hiding elements of the sketch that I didn't manage to select through the part
  • Thanks for the hint with the perspective and the explanation! I just didn't get from the answer of 3dcad if there is an open ticket ("my ticket can be grouped with others") that I can vote on or if you are suggesting to better open a new one?
  • Great! I didn't see that and without knowing the name I could not find it, thanks a lot.  There is still the question if you can place 'yourself', that is the view point inside of a hollow part so you can inside out. That might not make too much se…
  • Hi Kevin,  thanks a lot for your help! With your example I could reproduce the solution.  There are still a couple of things I miss. Eg the parallel reference plain is not evident when I saw it, but I guess now it is the plane to orientate the lap j…
  • Embarrasing, I managed to download the script and I can open it, but I don't know how to apply. Maybe this is due to the fact that I don't know exactly how to use intersection. Of course I read the help, but that text is very short and did not give …
  • Hi Neil, I kind of managed to load your script - it seems it was found, but it sais no features available. It also sais, that 22 changes had been maid and it asks to create a version in lab joint, but that did not react. So eventually it seems the f…
  • Mmh, I see now what you mean. Good eyes - better then mine, but they might be a bit older then yours... and good point! Are you saying the corner points do not match the lines in the sketch called "groundplane" and thus the planes are not right and …
  • Hi Daniel, brilliant, that's 2 flies in one swoop... thanks a lot! PS I wished I was your boss If ever you are looking for a job to assist and review my design, let me know !-)
  • Thanks a lot for your fast your answers! @Arul: I managed steps 1-3, but I could not extract the beam with the lap from the other one (without lap). I managed to extrude and add the missing part from the other entire beam, but I would like to see yo…
  • Hi Daniel, Thanks a lot for your fast reply!  If I get it right the solution you suggest is: Create a plan with the 2 corner points and the peak point, design the triangle and then extrude it.  Then repeat it for all 4 surfaces.  I have done thi…
  • Hi Bruce, yes it does help, I can now rotate an element. What I could not manage properly is the following: if the part refers to a base plane, then I have to stretch the element. I have to fix a line and define a line or point to where it should be…
  • Hi Tim, Unfortunately I cannot give you the answer but I had the same problem and therefore like to support your question. Sometimes it made me crazy when I wanted to select a region with elements in it, in my case holes. The first strange thing wa…
