Improvements to Onshape - May 28th, 2019
Welcome to our SECOND release this month! Let's dive into some of the new features.
BOM ITEMSWe're excited to share a highly-requested feature for enhancing product bill of materials.
Please note: You must be the company admin in order to add or change Items.
CALLOUT AND TABLE IMPROVEMENTSThis release includes numerous improvements for tables and the callout feature for ballooning drawings.
Fixed corners are applied to any type of table that you create.
Callouts can also now be created even without a leader. This can be useful for creating pure-text balloons, such as for revision markers or flag notes.
MORE PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTSAnother release means more performance improvements. With this release, you can expect to see improved performance on drawing view creation for assemblies with many repeated instances. You'll also see the material library dialog populate much more quickly than before.
VERSIONS AND HISTORY IN DETAILS PANEVersions and History for a document can now be conveniently viewed from the details pane, without having to open the document.
CUSTOM WORKFLOWS FOR RELEASE MANAGEMENTYou may now configure both the Release and Obsoletion workflows that your company utilizes within Onshape.
