I work as a design engineer at a small company with six different CAD systems. All of them with their little (and great) faults everyone knows.

  • It's so cool how you guys sit down and think of ways of how to improve every bit of this awesome piece of software. And of course also how you respond to the community. I work with all major CAD systems that are out there and one thing really aston…
  • That would be possible. However, I think that creating single sections of the outline projection would really complicate the process and make the loft very complex. Right now I'm trying an approach of creating an extra surface that has that twist a…
  • Yes I agree this FS has the same concept. Pattern a part to the sought location and connect the outline projections of the two parts. But as soon as there is a change of orientation, you can't use a plane for the outline projection. If this were the…
  • @konstantin_shiriazdanov funny! I did the EXACT same thing before I've read this post. And I came to the same conclusion. I have decided to limit the possibilities of this feature to cylindrical shapes. Like a milling cutter. This should cover nea…
  • First of all, thank you for your participation! @konstantin_shiriazdanov yes I agree! I've experimented with creating a loft using the outer  edges of each section. This COULD result in a surface where all section edges are tangential. Regardin…
  • Jake_Rosenfeld said: @johannes_w Are you taking sketch edges as input to your function, or creating sketches within your function to then use?  If you are taking them as input, you may just want to provide your user with a flipper to flip the…
  • NeilCooke said: @johannes_w - it can seem random which end of a curve is the start (and it probably is). Another option would be to use a Path and evPathTangentLines instead. With a Path you can set the start point. https://cad.onshape.com/FsD…
  • Thank you very much for this detailed explanation! But unfortunately, this definition of the direction is very case sensitive. Meaning that you only can use edges of bodys but not sketch components. In my case, I use a sketch line/arc/spline whateve…
  • I've already made an improvement request for the integration of html5 gamepad. I did a little research about how onshape handles the com with 3dconnexion a few days ago. I came to said results and contacted the developer of the spacenav project. He …
  • Reece_Isaac said: I am wondering if the issue is more to do with Chromium/Chrome/Firefox/Opera under Linux rather than purely 3dx.  As I pointed out previously I have been able to get it to respond in FreeCAD and the demonstration cubes.  Both…
  • Ok I've dug up my old joystick. A Saitek Cyborg X F.L.Y 5 . It is natively supported by linux. I checked, if firefox registers the joystick input and it does. Using this website: http://html5gamepad.com/ All axis and all buttons are registered co…
  • Thank you for this clarification. I did not know that! So basically, Onshape does not communicate with the hardware itself in any way. All it does is offering a separate input for 6 DOF devices to be able to use mouse and 3d mouse simultaneously…
  • Thank you @john_mcclary ! I appreciate your interest! I've found an application which is able to exactly do that. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sdt.pccontrol The problem here is, that it uses mouse controls so unlike …
  • TimRice said: We do not have any control over which OSs 3DConnexion supports so it is up to users to continue to pressure them into supporting Linux. I've read the other topics regarding this matter and it's always the same answer. "It's…
