Numeric Fields

Onshape incorporates numeric fields in almost every design action involved in Part Modelling (Sketch and Feature workspace environment), Assembly and Drawings with support of the following numeric values:

  • Integers
  • Decimals
  • Expressions
  • Trigonometric functions

It is paramount to decide and set your DEFAULT UNITS from the very beginning. These will be the units you will be working on your workspace throughout your design and regardless of the mixed units’ calculations that you may perform, within the numeric fields, the final value will always be displayed in your default units.

The video below gives a brief outlook of the numeric fields capabilities in Onshape and how you can use them.
