Improvements to Onshape - August 30th, 2022
PCB STUDIOWe are excited to announce the beta launch of our new PCB Studio, now available to all Onshape Professional and Enterprise users. With support for industry-standard PCB file formats, and dedicated circuit board component libraries, this new functionality makes it easier than ever to collaborate with engineers designing printed circuit boards.
