ONSHAPE CUSTOM
FEATURE 
CHALLENGE

In collaboration with

Formlabs Logo

Put your FeatureScript skills to the test by creating a custom feature in Onshape!

Have you ever wished your CAD program had a different feature or that a feature worked in a specific way? With Onshape you can make that happen! And the best part: you can then share that custom feature with other users. This allows the Onshape community to build on the platform and make it work for them.

In collaboration with Formlabs — an Onshape customer — we’re challenging you to create a custom feature in Onshape that assists in 3D printing.

This feature could help with an additive manufacturing workflow, creating or analyzing parts, or any other component of 3D printing. The best submission will win a Formlabs Form 3+ Complete Package, which includes the Form 3+ 3D Printer, Form Cure, Form Wash, and more! Read on to learn more about Formlabs and important details of the challenge.
