Improvements to Onshape - February 11th, 2016

    @NeilCooke Could you say something about the tesselation issue that I mentioned? Was the algorithms changed for this version?
    This has been going on for quite some time.  I have documents were everything looks fine except for one model.  I know it's just a visual issue since it does not show up when I machine my parts, but annoying nonetheless.

    @NeilCooke some remarks on drawings:
    • Please use real ISO dates or at least give the user a choice! YYYY-MM-DD ist the correct format (Calender Date) according to ISO. No slashes. No dots. And as the imperial units friends don't like: In descending order of magnitude  :) 
    • The drawings only show my first name – Why? I just gave the ISO DINA4 a quick try. Should have options: First Name, Last Name…

    some remarks on drawing discussions:

    after each update for some time now, we always get something for drawing templates but most of enhancements are built-in static stuff (added new template or added some field into template).

    I suggest that this would be the last update where you spend time adding some value or variable into template. Take your time and give us fully customizable templates (in Onshape, no external cads involved) with possibility to use any given data value (first name, last name, year, month, date, hour, min, sec, model #variable, logo image, etc..). We can then work for you and create a bunch of optional templates by sharing our templates in public.

    Otherwise it's like materials - no matter how many options, it's never enough until you let us create our own.. list will just grow too long to be effective in daily use.

    The goal is to have completely customisable templates. In the meantime we are adding capabilities to drawing templates as they become available. Rest assured it is a top priority. 

    @florian the name is taken from your name as displayed top right.

    Currently to show my design intent on countersunk holes etc, I have to show invisible lines. Unfortunatly the option is to show all invisible lines or none. This confuses things as other design lines are shown. So for me I would like to be able to delete some of the invisible lines and also to dimension from invisible lines.

    @peter_hall these are known limitations in drawings - please submit an enhancement request.

    The image resolution of large radii is a known issue in OS. I've submitted a support ticket back in September. Im building a 1:48 scale model ship with radii larger than 6 inches. It really shouldn't be an issue but it is.
