Improvements to Onshape - April 5th, 2022

edited April 25 in New in Onshape
This latest release includes a number of highly requested Drawing improvements and a continued focus on usability and core modeling tools. Enjoy.

GENERAL IMPROVEMENTS

BREADCRUMBS

Navigating nested folders and moving Documents between them is now much easier.

 

CAD IMPROVEMENTS

FILLET IMPROVEMENTS

The Fillet feature has two new options, "Edges to keep" and "Smooth fillet corners", providing more control and flexibility over fillet geometry.

 

DRAWING IMPROVEMENTS

HOLE CALLOUT OVERRIDES

Hole callouts can now be edited to change precision and tolerance values. Changes to these values affect all instances of the same hole in the drawing and are updated on hole tables.

 

BREAK EXTENSION LINES

When dimensions overlap, Onshape now automatically breaks extension lines to make Drawings clearer and easier to read. Breaks can be overridden from the context menu or the Styles panel.

 

INDEPENDENT ARROWHEAD CONTROL

In the Drawing Styles panel, you can now adjust both arrowheads of the selected dimension(s) independently.

 

TABLE ROW AND COLUMN SIZE

When resizing a row or column of a Drawing table, a tooltip appears showing you the width and height as you adjust it. You can also set a precise value for the size of a cell.

 

CUT LIST TABLE PROPERTIES

Cut list table properties can now be edited like any other tables in Drawings.

 

ENTERPRISE IMPROVEMENTS

UPDATED DASHBOARD UI

Analytics in Onshape Enterprise now comes with a fresh new look for better usability.



FEATURESCRIPT IMPROVEMENTS

TABLE PARAMETER GROUPS AND CONDITIONAL VISIBILITY

Custom tables can now include parameter groups for added usability. The visibility of parameters can now also be controlled based upon the condition of another parameter.



MOBILE IMPROVEMENTS

EXTERNAL KEYBOARD SUPPORT (iOS)

The iOS mobile app now supports external/magic keyboards. Enter text and numbers faster and use your favorite keyboard shortcuts!

LEARNING CENTER IMPROVEMENTS

ALL THE WAYS TO USE MATE CONNECTORS

We have released a new technical briefing focusing on all the different ways to use Mate connectors in Onshape Assemblies and Part Studios. This article is available to all Onshape users here.

VIDEO UPDATES

Check out the updated Section View video in the Navigating Onshape course to learn how to use the new include and exclude options. The Lines and Rectangle video in the Introduction to Sketching course now has a new section focused on Aligned rectangle. The Tab manager video in the Document Management course now includes how to batch export tabs. There is also a new video in the Linked Documents course explaining how to pin references and a new video in the Document Management course describing how to add properties to objects.


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 Documents. Over the next few days, these features will also be available in Documents created before this update.

    The new fillet options are really good. I don't remember having that kind of selective control for edge overflow and corners in other CAD systems. I'm pretty sure it's an all or nothing choice.

    The dimension break seems pretty intuitive and clean too.

    I will say I'm still looking for a face-face fillet, especially with an option to make a new surface...

    It would be cool if each of these improvement posts referenced the completed improvement requests, and those requests were closed. (e.g. I'm pretty sure this one should now be marked closed)

    Seems like a great opportunity to tally up the progress that's being made.

    The explicit column width and row height control is very helpful in making drawing templates with title block and rev tables consistent and to pixel precision.

    Outstanding Onshape team! The addition of automatic extension line breaks is a welcomed feature!

    They do get closed eventually and everyone attached to an improvement or support ticket gets notified. That’s @lougallo ’s job 😀

    "Hole Callout Overrides"
    When will it be possible to translate or delete the word "thru"? We've been asking you for years.

    Hi Neil,
    again some great improvements!

    In the fillet improvements video, you are selecting hidden edges. How can this be done? Any trick or keyboard shortcut?
    Thanks!

    Hi Thomas - I shot the video that way to see if anybody would ask  :)

    It's just the select other tool, which can be activated (on most keyboards) by pressing the button above the TAB key.

    And the ö-key on german layout (same location than your Ñ key. Not realy comfortable. Hope Onshape will soon support other keyboard layouts than the US.

    Thanks for adding the break feature in extension lines, it will make sheets look more cleaner and professional. Liked the smooth corner feature in fillets too!
