Onshape Apps

Hi, my name is Mikey from 1836, and I was wondering what Onshape app add ons teams use, what they like about them, and if they recommend any for us to try. Thank you in advance for your help.

We don’t really use any apps, but use a few featurescripts, including belt, chain path, fix pcb(simplifies a model) and lighten


Link Tab is useful for integrating google docs/sheets. I created some robot calculators to integrate. I also figured out how to integrate our cheesy parts server. You have to enable iframes to get it to work (and use https). I used letsencrypt for that.


The two featurescripts we use most are the custom length extrusion and extrusion grid. You can find these by searching “extrusion featurescript -FRC 1745”. These two allow you to create a tube or hex shaft or hex spacers etc with only two clicks and a dimension. The workflow revolutionized our robot design. We also use lighten, chain path generator and belt.
