    Still no fillet update to my existing document. It's a part studio within a document. All other part studios in that document have the new fillet.

    If there is no "automatic upgrade" in your version graph then the upgrade was unsuccessful for whatever reason. Please open a support ticket and share the doc with support and they will fix it for you.

    Is there something wrong with my account or documents if I haven't seen any of these features live yet? A "few days" was indicated and now it's been about three weeks.

    That thin extrude is perfect for drawing walls quickly!

    Thanks to the Onshape developers. It's great to see these 3 requests finished. Isn't the best part of a sprint getting to mark things done?

    @GregBrown I'd almost forgotten that I wrote the Face-Face fillet IR. Very happy to see it finished with all the controls.


    I was using the thin feature today and noticed it can't do this middle line:
    Shouldn't the tool automatically merge any extruded lines together?

    I love the thin extrude! There are so many things that become simpler with it. I was running into something similar to this issue too though, but with faces. If I have two adjacent co-planar faces, I should be able to pick them both to extrude the whole region's border as one rib, or maybe to extrude each face as it's own region with ribs. Right now it fails.

    Hmmm. Yeah it would appear that Thin extrudes can't handle T-junctions (or X-junctions) in the sketch, even if you make Direction 1 and Direction 2 equal. I'm not sure why Thin was added without this and a simple option to set the thickness of the wall and have it be symmetric?!? To me those are the two most obvious things that I want to do when using a thin extrusion. So we have a rib tool that doesn't have draft, and a thin extrusion which can't handle T-shapes.

    I know @NeilCooke created a Rib Network FeatureScript which solves this, but why do we have two almost functional but broken built in ways to do this?
