In spite of February being the shortest month of the year, we're excited to bring you a second release this month! We hope you enjoy some of these drawing and usability improvements.

As a reminder, Onshape Live, our annual virtual user conference, is THIS WEEK! Join us March 1st (Americas) or March 2nd (Europe) to catch all the action!

If you haven't done so already, please register HERE.

We'll see you all there!

GENERAL IMPROVEMENTS

LOFT SHOW CONNECTIONS IMPROVEMENT

When creating a Loft feature, the "connections" toggle now shows implicitly created connection points (connections created by default). This assists in troubleshooting instances of twist, and provides more clarity when creating your own connection points.

EXTEND - ELLIPSE

Extend or complete a partially sketched arc or ellipse, even if it was previously trimmed.

DRAWINGS IMPROVEMENTS

MAXIMUM DRAWING SIZE

The maximum height and width of an Onshape drawing sheet has now been increased to 1800 inches (150ft / 45m). This allows you to create 1:1 scale drawings of even larger parts. These outputs are often necessary for operations such as laser or water jet cutting.

FLAG NOTE SIZE

The size of Flag note symbols may now be adjusted. Additionally, the default size has been increased to create cleaner results for Flag note lists that contain more than 9 items.

HOLE CALLOUT LIMITS ON INSPECTION REPORTS

Hole callout tolerances of upper and lower limits are now mapped to their independent columns in an Onshape Inspection Report.

FEATURESCRIPT IMPROVEMENT

FEATURESCRIPT IMPORTS CONTEXT MENU

Right-click on any part of an Imported FeatureScript to update its linked document reference.

ANDROID IMPROVEMENTS

EXPORT DIALOG

The Export dialog on Android devices has been updated to more closely match that of the web browser.



CREATE VERSION FROM INSERT DIALOG

Similar to the browser, you may now create a version directly from the Insert dialog.




LEARNING CENTER IMPROVEMENTS

VIDEO UPDATES

Take a look at some new and updated videos in various Onshape courses:

    Love the FS improvement. Loft twist is pretty neat too.

    Either it's exactly what you said, or they're saving some things for Wednesday for Onshape Live.

    "The maximum size of an Onshape drawing sheet has now been increased to 1800 inches square (150ft)." Can you please provide info in metric units? Not everyone uses those dumb imperial units.

    I wasn't expecting an update until after the event honestly :)
  • S1monS1mon Member Posts: 2,104 PRO
    1800" = 45.72m

    Per the video that's per side, not square area units (which it almost sounds like in the text).

    @Cedric_Eveleigh I was confused by your comment because it looks like this to me 

    anyway, this is a plug for https://github.com/m1l/Everything-Metric it's a really great browser extension even if it occasionally messes up the line spacing on McMaster

    I like the flag note update but there is still no flexibility regarding the numbering format.

    Hmm, is it just me or does this one seem a bit "light"? Almost like the "headliner" improvement didn't pass QC on Friday and had to be left out until next time!

    I guess we've been spoiled with all the stuff we've gotten over the last few months!

    I guess they're releasing these light updates since they're pretty and not as fun/not really worth it to demo. Still not a bad update by itself I can make good use of the new courses, might save me from raising 1 or 2 tickets or will at least teach me something I wasn't aware of.

    Some seriously good improvements here.  Love the ellipse trimming and the sheet size improvements.

    But still waiting for Arial font...
