This Tech Tip will focus on how you can allow an outside party to participate in your process as an Observer at no additional cost. First, third parties need to be added to a team in order to add them as an Observer. Only people within your company can be added to the release process individually. Go to Teams in the company settings and add an outside party email ad ..read more

Texas-based engineer Nicholas Radzykewycz’s love for horses transcends geography, language and culture. A solar software engineer for a renewable energy company by day, Radzykewycz runs a nonprofit design firm in his spare time devoted to improving the lives of animals and lowering the cost of rehabilitation equipment for veterinarians and horse owners in impoverished areas around the world. The company is playfully named “FuzNuz,” a nod to how horses nuzzle their hair (fuzz) into each other to show affection. Also a mechanical engineer, Radzykewycz shares many of his innovations on Thingivers ..read more

Tech Tip: How to Change the BOM Header Display Names
Onshape
by Lindsay Early
3y ago
Previous Onshape Tech Tips have discussed how to Adjust BOMs in a Drawing, how to Add BOM Items, and how Exclude Parts or Assemblies from a BOM. Today, we are going to discuss how to change the column headers. Frequently, the name you wish to have displayed in a Bill of Materials (BOM) header is different from the property name. This is usually because you need to optimize on space in a drawing, set correct capitalization, or maintain communication with outside programs such as an ERP. The Display Name allows you to modify what is shown in the BOM header so that it displays correctly in your d ..read more

Onshape Partner Spotlight: Electra Cloud is the Only Electrical Schematic Software You Can Access Anywhere
Onshape

Onshape users have long known the value of cloud product development tools, but unfortunately there are still times when design tasks force even us cloud-loving engineers to resort to one of those old-fashioned, locally installed, and rarely updated tools that we’d all love to retire. One notable area where this has traditionally been the case is 2D schematic design – for electrical, P&ID, pneumatic, and hydraulic schematics. For that type of design, you’re probably using tools that were first released before many of us were even born. Those tools were certainly not designed to take advant ..read more

Tech Tip: How to Use Variables in Patterns to Vary Features
Onshape
by Lindsay Early
4y ago
In today’s Tech Tip, we will discuss how to use variables in conjunction with sketches and patterns to vary geometry. Variables in Onshape can be used in patterns and their values can be incremented through instances of the pattern. In this example, we’ll use a 8x8 fan cover that has slots varying not only in width, but also in count and spacing as they get further from the center. To create the fan cover, you need to start with the variables. Each variable should be defined twice. The first is the initial value. The second variable defines how it varies with the pattern. All the variables y ..read more
