Improvements to Onshape - December 10th, 2020
Although our logo may have changed, you’ll notice no changes when using Onshape itself – except the new features and improvements our development team delivers every three weeks!
Let’s take a look at the latest release:
CREATING VARIABLES ON THE FLY
Now you can create variables on the fly when editing a sketch or feature.
PDF TRANSPARENCYPDF Transparency is now supported so watermarks will no longer block the visibility of dimensions and other notes when drawings are exported to PDF.
ANDROID ARRAY PARAMETERS
Android devices can now handle array parameters to reduce the number of taps needed to complete features like Loft.
HISTORYRestoring in History now shows you more information about which point in history was used.
DRAWING USER INTERFACE
Drawing View properties and BOM Properties now show more detailed information about the referenced model including the workspace/revision/version Name, Part Number, Revision, and State.
JAPANESE LOCALIZATIONThe User Interface can now display Japanese. Go to My Account > Preferences > Display Language to change for individual users.
LEARNING CENTER IMPROVEMENTS
TECHNICAL BRIEFINGSThere is a new Tech Briefing on creating High Performing Assemblies. It includes information on general mating, Group vs. Fastened, and other techniques to make more robust and high performing assemblies.
ENTERPRISE USER INTERFACE
In Enterprise settings, you can sort the Users interface by Name, User Type, and Date added.
