Another 3 weeks, another update. Another chance to show you all the awesome things we have been working on to make your life easier.  Let's dig in.

COPY ASSEMBLIES AND DRAWINGS TO CLIPBOARD

You can now copy assemblies and drawings to the clipboard, then paste them into another Document.  All references to the assembly and drawing will also be copied.  The copied assembly or drawing is not linked to the original.

 


MATCH CURVATURE IN BRIDGING CURVE AND 3D FIT SPLINE

You now have options in both the bridging curve command and the 3D Fit Spline command to match the curvature, giving you curvature continuous transitions between your selections and the curves you are creating.

 


3D FIT SPLINE IMPROVEMENTS

You can now reference a plane or planar face when specifying direction in the 3D Fit Spline command.

 


INSPECTION DIMENSIONS IN ONSHAPE DRAWINGS

You can now specify a dimension as an Inspection Dimension with a new option in the Dimension Panel dialog.

 


DRAWING DIMENSION TEXT ALIGNMENT

You will find a new Drawing Properties option to align all dimension text horizontally.

 


JOGGED ANGULAR SECTION VIEWS

You can now add jogs to angular section views.

 


ATTACH GEOMETRIC TOLERANCE TO DIMENSION

You can now attach a Geometric Tolerance to a dimension in Onshape Drawings. Simply drag the symbol over a dimension on initial insert or after it has been placed.  You can detach at any time by dragging the symbol away from the dimension.



DRAWING PROPERTIES IN RIGHT-MOUSE CLICK MENU

You'll find a new "Drawing Properties" option when right-clicking in an Onshape Drawing.  In the past this was only available as an icon in the toolbar.



COLLAPSE PARTS LIST

You can now collapse the Parts List in your Part Studio.



IMPORT INTO MULTIPLE DOCUMENTS

You will find a new option when importing assemblies to "Split Assemblies and parts into multiple documents."  This will create Documents for each sub-assembly and part and organize them into a folder named after the top-level. To maintain ideal performance there will be a restriction to the number of parts that you can import with this option.



SELECT EDGES IN SHADED WITHOUT EDGES DISPLAY STYLE

You can now select edges when using the "Shaded without Edges" display style.

IMPROVEMENTS TO THE ONSHAPE LEARNING CENTER

We've added two new advanced courses to the Onshape Learning Center for Professional users. One for Sheet Metal and one for Managed In-Context Design. In addition, we've also made the Onshape Fundamentals learning pathway free for everyone (in the past this was limited to Onshape Professional users).


Please take a moment to try out these new features and improvements and leave your comments below. For a detailed list of all the changes in this latest update, please see the changelog.

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.
