    I spoke with Tim a little on this. Is there a place we can submit our custom features for feedback?

    Many of my features have been learning milestones for me, so I need to go back and re-write them before I ask for feedback. It would be good to do it with the correct criteria in mind.

    Great set of improvements.  Really good to see the framing tools.  

    Is it possible to do offsets? I imagine there should be an arrow to pull from the nodes to add an offset.

    Batch export from tab manager... perhaps we're one step closer to batch export from release candidates?

    I enjoy using and teaching Onshape.  However, I don't think I'm the only user wondering when Onshape will finally add the capability for external threads, similar to what the Hole tool provides without resorting to Featurescript add-ons.  The Featurescripts generate beautiful modeled threads, but ASME & ISO drawing standards use simplified threads with call-outs. 

    The browser version of Fusion 360 can generate threads - with the ability to switch between cosmetic and modeled - displayed as simplified threads with callouts in drawing mode, as per ASME/ANSI Y14.6 industry standard.  Which thread patterns? ANSI Unified, ANSI Metric, ACME, ISO Metric, ISO Trapezoid, ISO Pipe, JIS Pipe, GOST Pipe, GB Pipe, etc.


    I can always recommend the great External Thread 2D/3D FeatureScript by @seb@sebastian_glanzner: (even though you said no add-ons ;))

    Neil refers to "Super Derive" custom feature in the frames demo. Does anyone know if this is available and how it works? I tried to search in custom features but could not find anything.
    Here you go: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/cfef86ed4f9635531599a973
    It allows you to place multiple instances by mate connector so you don't have to use Transform afterwards.
    @NeilCooke Great - thanks!

    It's 3 weeks since Feb 18th. Just saying...

    Perhaps with Onshape Live things have shifted a bit? Monday? Tuesday?

    Great updates as always!

    About copying and pasting drawing views, could it be possible to extend this update to section views, aligned section views, and auxiliary views too? Seems like these should have been included in the improvement.

    Thanks!

    there is a feature called 'super derive' shown in the frames update video. Can't find that feature anywhere. Even in the custom features. 
    Can anyone please help me find it.
