  • Renderings are available by some of the partners in the app store currently.
  • I'm not sure if this has gone anywhere.  We design and build our own equipment and it would be awesome to be able to create and track the wiring schematics within Onshape as well as our mechanical drawings.
  • @Alexei_Pittowicz that level of intelligence would be awesome to have! I can envision implementing that for parts, but can only imagine how complex that may get for assemblies.  I have full faith in Onshape implementing an awesome solution though.
  • PeteYodis said: Would it be accurate to summarize and say one of the struggles currently is an easy way to navigate and consume released information, particularly the latest released information - regardless of which document or which versions …
  • Unfortunately I think the current workflow makes it confusing for both designers/end users as well as the parties interested in configuration management and control.  I've been working with release management since its earliest inception and I have …
  • My vision is to keep document and version control just how it is today.  I like that it provides snapshots in time and can be used however the company see's fit, but I wish it was completely disconnected from release management.  As mentioned I woul…
  • This is probably worth bringing up with Onshape support as it seems something in your release process is not working correctly.  Can you view the release package for v1 and my Rev 001? Are they the same package? Sorry to sidetrack your discussion A…
  • @adrian_velazquez  that is interesting.  I just ran the exact same test and when I go back to my release version it does show that the parts are released in the BOM.  The triangles are not shown in the assembly instance tree (which I agree is confus…
  • @adrian_velazquez can you go into that version "My Rev 001 Release" and open up the BOM table, add the "state" column and see what it says there?  I do believe that they are actually released just do not show the triangle symbol.  This is a complain…
  • adrian_velazquez said: Hi @Alexei_Pittowicz, We where just talking to Onshape about this last week. The way I would expect a Release to behave is: If you submit a Drawing and all it's corresponding reference as a candidate: one would expect th…
  • @adrian_velazquez here is another scenario: 1. You submit a release package that is approved for some parts and assemblies.  This is stored as a version as is the case right now. 2. A user then goes to make a change in the automatically created "ma…
  • @adrian_velazquez thats an interesting thought.  However, if one person requested it to be active again then technically the whole document is active and all parts are free reign for everyone with access.
  • @adrian_velazquez I don't disagree and I'm certainly following along to determine what some best practices are.  I'm hoping Onshape will yet again come up with some novel approach to this issue. However if I think back to my conventional CAD days o…
  • I'm with @tim_hess427 and have found the best strategy at this point is to release at the assembly level.  Then unfortunately after the release you must go back to the assembly and update the version of all your parts to their released versions.  (T…
  • andrew_kleinert said: michael_bromley said: We are using the release management process with decent success, however one area we struggle with is conducting a proper design review prior to release.  Typically we will host a design revi…
  • I'd like to add AS-568 O rings to the standard content library.
  • john_mcclary said: I just have a shared folder called library that I save all the common stuff. That way anyone with the share has access and knows where to look So each part is in its own document? if multiple parts are in a document yo…
  • So I'm curious how is everyone handling part libraries that are not currently in the offered standard content?
  • MBartlett21 said: I may be able to do something with the API. I currently have a Bubble app that exports all drawings in the document That sounds awesome!  I've added a custom property for manufacturing method and in my dream world I wo…
  • owen_sparks said: Sorry, no.  FS will only build features within a partstudio. It's deliberately restricted to what it has access to.   You may be able to do something via an API but that's a tad more more complicated. Cheers, Owen S. …
  • brucebartlett said: Also outside of this discussion, but I'll mention it here anyway, my biggest release management issue at the moment is finding the latest releases, I wish there was a way to group/show latest released drawings for a product…
  • If it is available I haven't found it, but it seems all of the ANSI hex nuts other than flanged start at 1/4-20.  I most often need sizes 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10.  
  • raj_Onshape said: Would you ability to create a release package from a rejected candidate with comments carried over and all items updated to the current workspace meet your needs ? If so please create and vote on a improvement request for the …
  • tim_hess427 said: @brucebartlett - I think I may have stumbled upon some addition information relevant to this issue. I was having the same problem, where releasing a drawing was automatically bumping the revision of the linked part. However, w…
  • I've been using it for a while now and quite honestly struggle with it. Here is how I see it: The positives: 1. You can capture a review/release process 2. Document the release state and revision of part/assembly/drawing The negatives: 1. Rejectin…
  • brucebartlett said: @philip_thomas , Ok so I've used release management to release a heap of drawings for a product. I had to do this step by step with various releases. Now I am trying to find a way to easily access all the released drawings a…
