Improvements to Onshape - October 1st, 2021

edited October 25 in New in Onshape
Starting October strong with another exciting Onshape release! Bringing quality of life improvements to drawings, a serious upgrade to link sharing, some exciting Enterprise functionality and new additions to the Learning Center. Let's take a look! 

GENERAL IMPROVEMENTS 

SET UI, CONFIGURATIONS, EXPLODE AND OTHER FEATURES WHEN LINK SHARING

You can now link share directly to an assembly and view context. This empowers you to share more effectively and spend less time training new view only users on where and how to access data in Onshape. 
 

Link sharing now captures the status of:
  • Show/hide feature list

  • Show/hide instance list

  • Active configuration

  • Show/hide sheet metal tab

  • Exploded/collapsed exploded views

  • BOM tab

  • Show/hide Featurescript custom table tab 

  • Active display state


DRAWING IMPROVEMENTS

HIDE LINKED PROPERTY PLACEHOLDER AND BACKGROUND ON DRAWINGS

Previously when adding a property callout in a note a “----” placeholder would show that the callout was not pulling data due to an empty property. You can now hide the grey background behind the placeholder or hide the placeholder altogether until the property is filled. 



ABILITY TO "FORESHORTEN" DIAMETER DIMENSIONS 

When using the diameter dimension tool in reference to a crop or detailed view we have now added the ability to toggle a foreshortened dimension, adding clarity to the dimension of the diameter being referenced. 

 

ABILITY TO ADD/REMOVE COLUMNS TO THE DRAWING REVISION TABLE

We have added the ability to create a custom revision table, editing Onshape's default revision table. You can now add, remove and reorder columns in the revision table. This new option can be found in the Release Management tab. Both revision and BOM templates have an "All uppercase in Drawings" option now. 

 


ENTERPRISE IMPROVEMENTS 

REMOVING USERS IN BULK USING A CSV FILE

In this release we have implemented the ability to remove users in bulk from an enterprise account. In addition we have improved the user interface when adding or removing users in bulk.



API IMPROVEMENTS

WEBHOOK BASIC AUTHENTICATION AND SIGNATURES

Administrators can now configure webhooks with additional security to ensure all API calls are genuine.



LEARNING CENTER

NEW SELF-PACED COURSES AND LEARNING PATHWAYS

We have several content and platform updates in the Onshape Learning Center!

Master Model Self-paced Course

Learn how to use a master model workflow in your designs by using the Derived feature to utilize master sketches and space allocation parts to drive the design. The new Master Model course is available to Standard, Professional, Enterprise, and Educational users.

Top-Down Design Learning Pathway

Ready to use top-down design workflows in your Onshape designs! This new pathway explores best practices when multi-part modeling in a Part Studio, using managed In-context Design in Assemblies, and the Master Model technique. You will receive a certificate for completing the courses and survey in this pathway. This pathway is available to Standard, Professional, Enterprise, and Educational users.

MORE VIDEO UPDATES

There have been several additional video updates to existing courses in the last few weeks, including a new video on sketch imprinting in Introduction to Sketching, update to the extrude videos in Part Design Using Part Studios and Introduction to Part Design, video updates on the Ball mate in Onshape Assemblies, and a new video on Full round fillet in the Advanced Part Design course.

NEW EVENTS TAB ON THE TRAINING DASHBOARD

Now all live training events you enroll and attend, including the virtual instructor-led classes, are listed on the new Events tab in your Training Dashboard.


ADD YOUR LEARNING CENTER CERTIFICATES TO LINKEDIN

There is a new button on the Certifications tab of your Training Dashboard to easily add your Onshape certificates to your LinkedIn profile!


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 Onshape Documents and over the next few days these features will also be available in Documents created before the date of this update.

    Great improvement to link sharing! The example in the video is a good one. Assembly tab with active exploded view and BOM tab open. Very useful to share with non-CAD users in procurement or production. Pure magic!

    This is all great stuff but drawings have been missing external threads for a long time. If memory serves it's been an improvement request for years.

    Love the improvements being made to the drawings. The Rev Table improvement is great. I also really like the training updates.
