That is AMAZING. And very useful. I have just been fighting for a whole
week with a customer design which I had to convert to STEP via onshape and
then tried to edit in FreeCAD, which was one of the most frustrating
experiences I had because it is not well designed for editting, due to the
paradigm of modification history.

Thank you very much for this.
