Just like that, after another three weeks, here's another release of Onshape with a lot of amazing new features! Let's take a look.

CAD IMPROVEMENTS

CYLINDRICAL WRAP

You can now wrap sketch or surface entities around a cylinder.

 


ASSEMBLY AND FEATURE PATTERN INSTANCES

Feature and assembly patterns are able to evaluate an instance count of one. This is extremely useful when setting up configurations as no extra features are needed to handle a configuration that requires a pattern instance count of one.

 


CONFIGURATION TABLE IMPROVEMENTS

Copying and pasting data into a configuration table will now automatically add rows to the configuration table so that all of the data fits. This is improved over having to add each row manually before pasting the data in. To get started with configurations, visit our learning center.

 


ASSEMBLY DIAGNOSTICS IMPROVEMENTS

We have improved the information Onshape gives you when there is a subassembly error and you are trying to diagnose it from the top-level assembly. This will allow for faster mate resolutions when piecing together all of your sub-assemblies.

 


TAB DELETION WARNING

When you delete a tab in Onshape, you will now be warned if this will cause conflicts elsewhere to help understand the implications of that action before making a decision. Clicking Delete finalizes the deletion while selecting cancel closes the dialog without deleting any tabs. If the tab is able to be deleted without causing any conflicts it will simply be deleted, with no warning.



REORDERING SELECTIONS

Reordering of selections is now available for an expanded list of features where the order of selection matters. Previously you had to redo a selection if an error was made or new entities were introduced. Now you will be able to reorder the selections made within fit spine points, boolean, transform by line, and assembly mates.


HIGHLIGHT BOUNDARY EDGES

A new view tool is now available to toggle highlighting boundary (or laminar) surface edges. This will aid in identifying areas of an imported model which need repair and assist with surfacing workflows. See our help documentation for more on repairing imported models.


 


ATTACH GD&T TO HOLE CALLOUTS

GD&T can now be attached to hole callouts.



PROFESSIONAL IMPROVEMENTS

DRAWING WATERMARK IMPROVEMENTS

Within the release management settings, the company has the option to hide watermarks on drawings that are marked as not revision managed.




ENTERPRISE IMPROVEMENTS

SPECIFY STARTUP PAGE

Enterprise users can now specify their start page (Analytics, Documents, Activity, or Action Items). Upon logging in to Onshape, this will be the page they see. This is also available for the Android mobile app.



SUPPORT FOR LIST-TYPE WORKFLOW PROPERTIES

Administrators can now include list-type properties when setting up custom workflows for Release Management.



MOBILE IMPROVEMENTS

TASK MANAGEMENT IN COMMENTS

The Android mobile application now supports task assignment. If multiple users are mentioned in a comment there is a drop-down to select which user to assign the task to.



IOS NOTIFICATION CENTER

iOS users now have access to a notification center that lists out all of their notifications. This includes the ability to search and filter notifications.


BOTTOM NAVIGATION IMPROVEMENTS

Both iOS and Android have improved bottom navigation interfaces for a better experience.



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 changelog.

Remember: The updates listed here are now live for all users when creating new Documents and over the next few days these features will also be available in Documents created before the date of this update.
