Top ten improvement request... to be implemented in 2020

This is the last post, at the end of 2018, about the Top ten improvement requests https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/10786/top-ten-improvement-request-updated#latest

But this time instead of waiting for December I will publish it a little earlier ... just in case we have any of these improvements as a gift this Christmas ;-)

1 - Coloring faces 
2 - Exploded Views
3 - Global variables
4 - Make Part Transparent in Assembly
5 - 3D sketching / curves
6 - Mirror feature for assembly workflow
7 - Center of Mass Symbol
8 - Create and edit variables from within a sketch
9 - Assembly interference detection
     9' - Sheet Metal Features (Partially implemented)
10 - External cosmetic thread

And this is my own top ten list updated:
  1. Handle identical parts in Part Studios and BOMs (Group by name or part number)
  2. 3D Sketch
  3. Mirror in Assemblies
  4. Where a part or assembly is used
  5. No-CAD users who can edit properties (in Onshape Professional)
  6. More options to create teams & share (hide other members in teams and Share a few tabs of a document)
  7. Notes in Part Studios and Assemblies (Weld, surface finish, tolerances,...)
  8. Interference detection
  9. Drawing properties templates (or in the settings) & change individual properties of an element (Partially implemented)
  10. Coloring faces and textures 
And as an extra, a simple checkbox option in the settings: Avoid to create a Drawing from a Part Studio
Un saludo,

    Very interesting and indeed features very much needed in a professional CAD tool. Totally agreed with both lists.

    I like all of these, but I'm not seeing many of them so far.  I know that they are planning on adding folder grouping in Part Studios, but where it really needs to be is in Assemblies, where the Instances Tree gets super-huge.

    My top picks are:

    1. Modify part surface for color, texture, and add artwork.
    2. Folder structure in Assemblies.
    3. Move mate connections to a drop-down menu, rather than in the Instances Tree of Assemblies.
    4. Ability to move a part or assembly from the 0,0,0 point of the CoG, to the Origin.

    ...among many other things.

    I very much like to see 3) Global variables & 7) Center of Mass symbol implemented into Onshape soon. Global variables will be a huge boost to functionality of Onshape.
