This Fall, we switched from Inventor (we liked it, but it’s no longer loaded on school PCs) to OnShape. As we trained, we found this quick “hints & tips” document to a helpful reference for many of the frequently-used commands we use during build season. We hope you find it useful, too!
Awesome stuff. We moved from Inventor to OnShape for the exact same reason this season and don’t regret it for a second. I liked the tip about naming mates, I find myself taking more time than I’d like figuring out what’s mated to what.
Thank you for your comments! You are right: naming constraints has been very helpful - esp. when sharing and debugging models.
One thing I did not post (maybe v1.1?) is renaming contexts too (for the same reasons). This is equally helpful, if you start to have a lot of them.
Thanks for the share! I love the step by step annotations on the screenshots.
