Onshape has somewhat unique feature tools you use to create parts. Many of our tools are 'combination' tools and serve many purposes like creating new material, adding additional material, removing material, and also creating intersecting material. For example, the Extrude tool is used for all of the above.

This topic walks you through the basics of feature tool dialogs: how to use them, what the color paradigm means, and the other unique characteristics that make Onshape features easy to use.
