Improvements to Onshape - October 8, 2014

Updates to Onshape were pushed this week to address a number of stabilization and performance improvements. Here are some of the highlights:
Highlights:
  1. Optimization of large assembly load speeds. As a reference we have a number of tests we run in order to measure performance improvements. These updates improved overall loading ~ 12% on initial load but ~ 53% on subsequent loading. Performance improvement is a constant focus for us.

  2. The help menu has been expanded to include a number of direct links to videos, forums and tutorials.

  3. The ENTER key will now accept the current command, closing the dialog and SHIFT+ENTER will accept and repeat the current command. Hint: watch the keyboard to see which keys are being hit in the animation.

  4. Plane display was improved, making it easier to see the borders against the graphics background.

  5. The "Use" command has been updated to explain it's functionality of converting/projecting selections into the existing sketch.

  6. Since launch, undo and redo were always CTRL+Z or CTRL+Y on any system, including Mac. Now you can use CMD+Z and CMD+Y to undo and redo respectively in Onshape. (this was one I missed last update)
  7. When extruding two tangent sketch circles, a seam will no longer be created on the face of the resultant cylinder.
    Before:

    After:

  8. Tabs that include uploaded files can also now be updated with the same file type. You can right click on the tab and select "Update" to select a new file to replace that content with. Here is the process in action:

  9. Feature/sketch rename on create is now an option. When you create a new sketch or feature, you can click the pencil icon next to the name and edit the name on create.

More to come and please keep the feedback rolling in! ~Lou
