  • Re: Is "Drawing" the weak point of OnShape ?


    YES! :+1:

    And if you wan't to share only partial data, link it to another doc and share link to that document = permanent link, access without login to exactly the data you wan't to share.

    Then with some further experience on paperless design-to-manufacturing, write an ultimate improvement request for superior MBD feature! You will get my vote for sure =)
  • Re: Let's talk about... money.

    I would say it's also good for business to pay a decent amount of your tools, it keeps you on subject and don't let you burry your projects for months because you pay for it.
    Onshapes annual cost should be pretty easy to gather in countries where a cup of coffee cost >$3, should be doable even for startups.
    But for the countries where month's salary is like $10, it can be difficult to justify - but then again, developers need to eat too..

    It is actually funny how people buy all kind of useless stuff all the time ($800 cell phones) but when you ask more than $1 for software, they will spend hours for searching pirate or free alternative.. =)
  • Re: Free Users in a company

    I would like to allow showing sketches/dimensions and after a while I would like to allow selecting configurations too. All these options for sharing with free user / share using public link.
  • Re: Can you sketch on a drawing?

    This is actually pretty interesting question. Should we be able to sketch in drawings? Or insert/show sketches in drawings for print?

    Why would we sketch on drawings if we have even better sketcher in 3d mode? Should they be similar?
  • Re: [Feature Request] Mirror Parts in Assemblies

    Forum is more like place for discussion and gathering thoughts to create awesome ideas. When your mind is clear and you know what you need, it's best to put in a ticket through feedback on cad ?-menu.

Howdy, Stranger!
