Improvements to Onshape - July 13, 2021

We're kicking off July with a new update. This update includes highly requested import and release management features. Let’s take a look!

CAD IMPROVEMENTS

IMPORT IMPROVEMENTS

Split into multiple documents is improved to take advantage of our unique document structure.

 

IMPROVED ARRAY AND MAP ITERATION FOR FEATURESCRIPT

Now, define your for loops with the key and value within the declaration:

for (var index, value in myArray)
{
   ...
}

A similar syntax is allowed for maps as well:

for (var key, value in myMap)
{
   ...
}
These improvements are equivalent syntax to the existing map/array iteration in Featurescript. See the Featurescript Documentation for more details.

DRAWING IMPROVEMENTS

TABLE SUPPORT FOR ALT + ENTER

Create new lines within a table by holding ALT(Option) while pressing Enter.



GROUP NOTES WITH DRAWING VIEWS

You can group notes and drawing views by pre-selecting them and choosing Group from the right-click in context menu.

 


PROFESSIONAL IMPROVEMENTS

RELEASE MANAGEMENT CHANGE DETECTION

Release candidates detect unchanged components to avoid needless revisioning.
 

RELEASE MANAGEMENT WARNING IMPROVEMENTS

Release Management now detects and warns the user if the candidate contains an obsolete component.



ENTERPRISE IMPROVEMENTS

ANALYTICS IMPROVEMENTS

Analytics has new filters and columns to better organize customized reports and dashboards.
 


MOBILE IMPROVEMENTS

SELECTION IMPROVEMENTS IN IOS

Modify the order of selections for Transforms, 3D fit spline, Boolean, and most Mates.

LINK SHARING IN IOS

Activate Share links directly from your iOS device.




For a detailed list of all the changes in this update, please see the changelog.

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

    Change detection to prevent making unnecessary revisions will be a lifesaver. I've had to make so many individual obsoletions to correct that mistake.

    The import improvement is great! ps, does this make the import tree come in in order, instead of upside down?

    The new import feature is awesome. I had an assembly I had to upload that has a cluster of subassemblies in it and it parceled the subs out with their parts in each document. It is so easy to find the items I need to work with in this structure. I'm doing my happy dance!
