Updating Onshape model

Post by Dan Engerer » Wed Jun 06, 2018 2:54 pm

Hello. Simlab previously had supported the Onshape link, which was great. As I recall you were going to allow us to update our models from Onshape. This is a huge deal, because making any small changes means that the user must set up the rendering/simulation FROM ZERO all over again, which is a massive waste of time.

How can the user easily update the model when changes are made? If this feature does not exist, when will it exist?

Hello Dan,

I am sorry, I do not think dynamic update for OnShape to be supported soon.

But what you can do is to download the model from OnShape
Do material updates as needed.
From the material menu click Save material palette, save the palette file
When the model is updated on OnShape, download the new version.
From the material menu click Retain Material Palette, this should save you the effort of re-applying the materials again.
