Improvements to Onshape - December 3rd, 2019
MERGE SURFACESYou can now merge surfaces using the Boolean feature. In the past, the Boolean feature was limited to merging solid parts, and the only options to merge surfaces were within individual features.
BOOLEAN IMPROVEMENTSYou can now subtract solids from surfaces using the Boolean feature in Onshape.
REPLACE IMPROVEMENTSThe replace command in Onshape assemblies now allows you to replace parts, assemblies, sketches, surfaces, and composite parts. In the past, this feature was limited to only parts. You can also replace any combination of parts, assemblies, sketches, surfaces, and composite parts.
TOP-LEVEL ASSEMBLY HANDLESYou will find a top-level assembly handle at the top of your instance list in Onshape Assemblies. This makes it easy to select everything in the assembly for things like interference detection, and calculating mass.
DOCUMENTS PAGE IMPROVEMENTSYou will find a new Properties flyout and Revision History flyout when using Advanced search in the Documents page in Onshape. This means you can view the revision history and view/edit the properties of a part/assembly or drawing without needing to open the Document.
ADD NODE TO LEADERS IN ONSHAPE DRAWINGSYou can now add Nodes to Leaders in Onshape Drawings. Simply right-click the leader, and you will see the new option to "Add node." Additional leaders can be created from nodes by right-clicking a node and choose the option to "Add leader."
SHEET FLYOUT IMPROVEMENTS IN ONSHAPE DRAWINGSYou will now see the Bill of Materials listed in the Sheets flyout. This makes it easy to edit the BOM or move it to another sheet.
ALLOW ACCESS TO THE APP STOREAs an admin or owner of an Enterprise in Onshape, you will find a new global permission that allows you to define who in your company can access the Onshape App Store.
