Improvements to Onshape - September 1st, 2023
LIST VIEWList view is a new, intuitive way to navigate your Onshape data based on your product's structure, rather than Documents.
DRAFT IN RIB FEATUREYou can now add Draft directly within the Rib feature.
ANGLE REFERENCE IN FRAMESYou can now define an angle reference when creating Frames in Onshape. This is useful when you want to define the angle of a Frame feature relative to other geometry.
MID PLANE IN THIN-EXTRUDE AND THICKENYou can now define both Thin-extrude and Thicken features with a Mid plane offset. This allows you to create geometry that represents the center and quickly offset it equally in both directions.
CATEGORIES IN BILL OF MATERIALSCategories can now be added to your Bill of Materials in Onshape.
COPY/PASTE FROM PART STUDIOYou can now copy a Part from a Part Studio and paste it to an assembly within the same Document. In the past, this was limited to parts already inserted into the assembly.
CONVERT BOOLEANS AND TEXT PARAMETERS TO EXPRESSIONYou can now convert booleans and text parameters to an expression. Controlling booleans and text parameters with expressions can be especially useful when creating configurations.
IMPORT APPEARANCESYou will find a new option when importing to "Import appearances." It is on by default (meaning appearances are imported by default) but can be unchecked if you do not want the imported model's appearances.
PUBLICATION IMPROVEMENTSIf you share (with export permissions granted) a Publication using Link sharing, the person you have shared with will have the option to print. This can be useful if you share with someone that does not have an Onshape account and they want to create screenshots for documentation, sales, or marketing purposes.
GEOMETRIC TOLERANCE IMPROVEMENTSYou can now add information to all sides of a Geometric tolerance symbol.
CIRCULAR CENTERMARKSYou can now insert Circular centermarks in Onshape Drawings. This is especially useful for defining bolt circles.
EXTERNAL THREAD IMPROVEMENTSExternal threads now show a more accurate transition in Onshape Drawings.
WHERE USED FOR FEATURE STUDIOSWhere used now supports Feature Studios. This allows you to quickly find any Part Studio (or Feature Studio) where a specific custom feature has been inserted.
REASSIGN TASKSOnshape Professional and Enterprise users can now reassign tasks. In the past, the task needed to be deleted and recreated. Only the task creator and company administrator can reassign a task.
TEAM FILTER FOR ACTION ITEM ANALYTICSYou can now filter Action Item analytics by the team responsible for them. This gives you an easy way to see outstanding Tasks that belong to a specific team.
