  • I use waterjet guys all the time. I'll have some of them chime in.
  • I'm not sure how you have things set up, your site's architecture and what you are doing? For me, I'm using sockets. So when you connect to my server https://www.rustyshed.com, there's an open pipeline between client & server.  Sequence betwee…
  • I've been grouping sub-assemblies, which in turn, forces the top levels to re-assemble properly. Instead of having a top level go back to the home position, force the components in the top-assembly to goto the correct position. There is no way to e…
  • For me, this new pattern works really well. I'm wanting something, mainly an image and it's working well. One tip about json, it's best to modify the leaf and put it back vs. trying to send bits & pieces back. When you ask for something, modify…
  • So after getting the configuration data, you have to build the query. Here's the syntax (give me a shaded view made with this configuration): https://cad.onshape.com/api/partstudios/DWE?shadowedview=....&configuration=......
  • I believe all your requests will be get requests from now on. You get the configuration table & then build a request so you can get something with a particular configuration. In this case, I'm asking for an image with a configuration. I have a …
  • Yeap, the good news is that it's working. What you have is an image.  Use something like this (html img tag) to show it: `Rendered Image` Where ${image.images} is the d…
  • here's an example of a call to get an image & set a configuration: https://cad.onshape.com/api/partstudios/d/9fcf3164704365d01771f942/v/bf27dccad59772f34b3c34a9/e/aaae3de87dcf62d3ea140ba2/shadedviews?outputWidth=900&outputHeight=900&pix…
  • It's all been switched up. Configurations aren't updated any longer, instead, you send query parameters for part studios or assemblies. It works better this way. I think you'll have to re-write your code.
  • At first do a derived partstudio into another partstudio. Then after that, do work on bringing everything into an assembly. I think there are too many people stuck in partstudios and not moving to the world of desigining in an assembly (incontext).…
  • Ok, got assemblies working. Turns out assemblies work like part studios. Getting the images is a little different. I currently have my server requesting the images and want to change this to the browser for more functionality. This is my problem …
  • voted up curves in assy & hopefully drawings
  • voted it up
  • @MBartlett21 thanks I'll take a look at it. I'm not sure why it worked in Feb and now it doesn't. My server code hasn't changed since the beginning of the year. It's gotta be on their back end. Anyway, I've issued a support ticket.  Thanks for h…
  • @MBartlett21 I've scanned both access.logs & error.logs from the 5th, 6th & 7th and found neither access or errors for your ip. rustyshed.com isn't seeing your request, someone else is blocking it. In the rustyshed service log I did see your…
  • Great minds think a like. I was thinking the same thing. Possibly this weekend.  All of my OS projects end up in an assembly, as I think all projects should. Assembly config is something I've been wanting for a long time. Nows the time. @MBartlet…
  • Owen- do you have a partstudio with a configuration I could use to see if it'll work on my site? I believe if you share something with me, I should be able to point to it and it should work. Changing the OS config names updates web presence: I su…
  • I tend to resize using command + & command - for every computer I use. Mostly I diminish font size to give me more graphics area: When I'm working on a laptop or a 4K monitor, I adjust differently.
  • Surprisingly it works in most places around the world, more hits outside USA than inside.  It's probably something else. I'm writing using ecma 6, redirect from nginx to nodejs and using local storage; there's a lot of things that could be sending …
  • @MBartlett21- I just checked my server logs and didn't see anything strange. Can you please tell me your IP address, it'll make looking for the transaction a little easier? 
  • Are you asking me or is this in general?
  • Philip- it's about 100 lines of code in nodejs and without a lot of documentation, I don't think it'll be that meaningful without putting in a lot of time to document everything. I'm using sockets. What's a socket? Not sure I want to go there. I do …
  • Large assemblies- 2 thumbs up!
  • @sean_blanchard  Just delete the external reference and the "in context" relation is gone. Look for purple things in a sketch which marks external constraints. Purple is external. Also, re-route external "up to" references to local. I constrain to…
  • FeatureScript 370; import(path : "onshape/std/geometry.fs", version : "370.0"); import(path : "c7c1d6986e28b170c61450e7", version : "e5c1f8fac7228a89a9e1153b"); function parseVertex(s is string) // Returns a unitless 3D Vector or undefined …
  • @tommie_berry Sorry for the late post, haven't had the time to dig up an old project I've worked on. I was working on point clouds and selecting planar points from cloud. I also had points close to faces. I also have an opinion about all this. Cl…
  • @glen_baxter You might want to create a new post rather than use this old one.  Yours is more about surfacing and it'd be nice to collect these into a surfacing area in this forum. Like Owen says, there's a lot of people here that'll help you. …
  • OK, so you can put the profile anywhere along the path: Just create a normal plane along your path and that'll work.
