Improvements to Onshape - November 9th, 2018
Another 3 weeks, another amazing update from Onshape including some highly requested features! Customers who have submitted tickets that are addressed by improvements in this release will be notified in the coming days. If you have improvement requests, please submit your ideas here. Let us know what you think.
REPLACE PARTS IN AN ASSEMBLY
You can now replace parts in an assembly with any other part, even from other documents or standard content.
DRAWING CALLOUTS ALIGNMENT
Drawing callouts can be aligned vertically and horizontally with the first selected callout in a selection from the context menu.
DUAL UNITS PANEL IMPROVEMENTS
In the dimensions panel, there are improved options for control over dual units. By default, a dimension will follow what's set in the drawings properties panel or you can select for the chosen dimensions to either show single or dual units independent of the drawing properties.
IMPROVED INSERT VIEW DIALOG WITH SCALE OPTION
New with this update is a view scale option added to the insert view dialog. You can set your drawing view scale upon insertion instead of needing to perform a secondary action.
UPDATE DRAWINGS DURING VERSION CREATION
When creating a version you will now be notified if any drawings are out of date along with the ability to update those drawings through the version creation dialog.
BEND NOTES AND HOLE CALLOUTS IN PROPERTIES PANEL
Bend notes and hole callouts are added to the annotations tab of the drawing properties panel. Here you can modify the font, text height, and color of the bend notes and hole callouts.
SPECIFY USERS FOR RELEASE CREATION
In Enterprise, you can now specify who is allowed to create a release candidate as a global permission to go along with the existing ability to control who can approve releases. Remember, global permissions are controlled by an enterprise administrator.
REPORTING PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTSThis update includes performance improvements to enterprise analytics reports. Initial report opening time is now faster as well as navigating between different reports within a session.
Please take a moment to try out these new features and improvements and leave your comments below. For a detailed list of all the changes in this update, please see the Onshape changelog.
