Thanks for the link Ron, it looks like an interesting program. I have signed up and will have a play with it.
One downside I see to my adopting it is that I can't import my current Geomagic files so I need to retain Geomagic in addition to anything else I use.

As an exercise in collaboration, it could be interesting. I assume you would want to work in imperial measurement so I would not be interested in actually building anything since I only use metric.

I will subscribe to the thread and see where it goes. If I think I can contribute, I will let you know.

Jim

You can use you Alibre/Geomagic files if you export them as Iges files and then upload them to Onshape. I have done is several times as I test the program.

All we need for this to work is for one person to start a new document or as I prefer to call them a new project. Then those that would like to join in just need to provide to that person there Email address and the person that started the new project just shares with the other folks.
To keep things straight we would build a project tree and folks can take on the parts they want to.
These separate parts can then be merged back into MAIN.
I have shared one of my projects with a couple of folks that have edit and share privileges.

Looks like Dave has started a shared project, lets all jump on it. Just need to decide what engine we want to do. I don't think we are doing this to get the engine design- but to learn how the process works.

Should we pick one design, then allocate its parts as people join the project? Each of us could do our part and we could all see the whole.

Now we need a good way to talk while we are working on designs. I use Skype with some of my model engineer friends that works well.

My skype name is dave.sohlstrom if others would like to add me as a contact.

Thanks for adding me in. I have the project open and walked away to see it was changed from a cylinder to a few blocks and features when i returned so the parts do update in some form of real time.

I guess we need a project! If the project is drawing a know design, the individual parts should probably be listed in a spreadsheet and someone should manager who is assigned to a part for that creation. Then possibly sub assemblies also with owners?

Just thinking out loud.
