I'm a HUGE fan of the TeachingTech youtuber, and I really enjoy designing with OnShape.

He's done a BRILLIANT job with his tutorial series that I've been following along with:

Here's the 2nd video in the series where he's creating basic parts. I'm at video 4 and have learned some really awesome skills!


Here's the playlist:

@Nifty you seem to change the 3D Design software you use faster than I change Hats..:lol:

I’ve had a detailed look at this guy on the video using OnShape, and he made the task of building a simple tool holder as difficult as it could be..

The OnShape software looks pretty handy and easy to use and it seems to cover most things, but I’m stuck with OPENSCAD and have not bothered learning anything else, and in this guy’s video He reckons OPENSCAD is more difficult to use.. ! (I get stuck if I try)

Yet the only reason I use it, is the complete opposite to his opinion, so someone must have an alternative motive for wanting people to use OnShape, I have yet to find something that doesn’t work on OPENSCAD..

Here’s a tool holder I made a while ago without all the flapping about this guy done..

Huh, really? I think I've pretty much been with only two (others I've tested for a day or two), but I did Tinkercad for about 3-4 years, and then about a year or so ago started using OnShape.

... of course, maybe you only have two hats? LOL!

Wait, am I reading this right? That you think that youtuber has an ulterior motive than to make videos promoting his choice for the best option (for him)?

I hear you, and understand that you really like OPENSCAD, think it's easier for you to use, etc., and I can't debate that since it's your opinion.

... that said, I believe that there are WAY more people that choose parametric programs like Fusion360, OnShape, etc. because it is more powerful and often easier to use.

At least, that's what I've heard from most 3D modelers I've chatted with, and I share that opinion.

Again, not to diminish away from your love on OPENSCAD... I'm glad it's working well for you.
