Improvements to Onshape - May 4th, 2017

We continue with our efforts to bring you update after update filled with highly-requested features.  Here is our latest additions to start May.  Hope you enjoy!

COMPOSITE CURVE

Creates a single curve comprised of sketch geometry, edges, curves, or any combination of these.

 


3D FIT SPLINE

Creates a 3D Spline through selected points.  Start and End direction vectors and magnitude allow you to control the spline's shape.

 


SHEET METAL FILLET AND CHAMFER

You can now fillet and chamfer the corners of sheet metal parts.

 


EXPORT DXF/DWG FROM FLAT VIEW

You can now export a DXF/DWG directly from a Flat View in Onshape.  You no longer need to create a drawing.

 


"LIST" TYPE PROPERTIES

Company owners and admins can now create properties that allow the user to choose from a list.

 


INSERT DXF/DWG IN ONSHAPE DRAWINGS

You can now insert a DXF or DWG into an Onshape Drawing.  This is useful if you have a DXF or DWG template from a past CAD system and want to use it in Onshape to create a template.

 


COMPOSITE GEOMETRIC TOLERANCE

You can now create composite geometric tolerances.

 


MOVE DRAWING VIEW IMPROVEMENTS

Now when you move a drawing view with linked views, annotations on those linked views move as well.



DERIVED FEATURE IMPROVEMENTS

You can now insert any curve with the Derived feature.  In the past this was limited to helices.



DOCUMENTS PAGE IMPROVEMENTS

Small improvements have been made to the Documents page, including a new Create button and the ability to collapse and expand teams, and labels.



IMPORT IMPROVEMENTS

Improvements have been made to importing geometry into Onshape.  Most notably Onshape should be better with healing imported geometry with problem surfaces.  Also added is the ability to import PTC Creo 4 files and CATIA V5-6R2017(R27).

Please take a moment to try out these new features and improvements and let us know what you think!  

Remember: The updates listed here are now live for all users when creating new Documents and over the next few days these features will also be available in Documents created before the date of this update.

    Excellent work "Team Onshape". Great to get the fillets sorted for sheet metal and the drawing improvements will help too!

    Nice range of new features, awesome!

    Onshape has grown into state that requests/updates become more and more for specific use.

    There is still at least one big feature I've been waiting for that would probably serve the whole community.
    I've been mentioning it so many times that I'll just leave it up to imagination to guess what feature I'm talking about ;)

    Yea, I totally ran through the office and cheered for sheet-metal fillet. But now I wonder how long until they include the rest of the tools for sheet-metal. Extrude add, Pattern, hole, etc.

    @3dcad, sounds like conflagrations?

    Composite Spline and the rest of that dropdown menu doesnt appear in my menu bar for some reason.

    Upgrades take a few days on existing Documents.  You should see it now in new Documents and soon in older Documents.

    Nice update. The composite curve will let us do basic surface modeling. Well done.

    Great list of updates, I just had fun adding radius's to a host of sheet metal parts, I am glad I didn't have to use an extrude cut.

    I agree 100% with @brucebartlett!  So glad to see the radius & chamfer corner feature.  I was intentionally not treating the corners and hoping Onshape would roll out this feature soon :)
