Improvements to Onshape - October 1st, 2021
SET UI, CONFIGURATIONS, EXPLODE AND OTHER FEATURES WHEN LINK SHARINGYou can now link share directly to an assembly and view context. This empowers you to share more effectively and spend less time training new view only users on where and how to access data in Onshape.
Link sharing now captures the status of:
Show/hide feature list
Show/hide instance list
Show/hide sheet metal tab
Exploded/collapsed exploded views
Show/hide Featurescript custom table tab
Active display state
HIDE LINKED PROPERTY PLACEHOLDER AND BACKGROUND ON DRAWINGS
Previously when adding a property callout in a note a “----” placeholder would show that the callout was not pulling data due to an empty property. You can now hide the grey background behind the placeholder or hide the placeholder altogether until the property is filled.
ABILITY TO "FORESHORTEN" DIAMETER DIMENSIONS
When using the diameter dimension tool in reference to a crop or detailed view we have now added the ability to toggle a foreshortened dimension, adding clarity to the dimension of the diameter being referenced.
ABILITY TO ADD/REMOVE COLUMNS TO THE DRAWING REVISION TABLE
We have added the ability to create a custom revision table, editing Onshape's default revision table. You can now add, remove and reorder columns in the revision table. This new option can be found in the Release Management tab. Both revision and BOM templates have an "All uppercase in Drawings" option now.
REMOVING USERS IN BULK USING A CSV FILEIn this release we have implemented the ability to remove users in bulk from an enterprise account. In addition we have improved the user interface when adding or removing users in bulk.
WEBHOOK BASIC AUTHENTICATION AND SIGNATURESAdministrators can now configure webhooks with additional security to ensure all API calls are genuine.
NEW SELF-PACED COURSES AND LEARNING PATHWAYSWe have several content and platform updates in the Onshape Learning Center!
Learn how to use a master model workflow in your designs by using the Derived feature to utilize master sketches and space allocation parts to drive the design. The new Master Model course is available to Standard, Professional, Enterprise, and Educational users.
Ready to use top-down design workflows in your Onshape designs! This new pathway explores best practices when multi-part modeling in a Part Studio, using managed In-context Design in Assemblies, and the Master Model technique. You will receive a certificate for completing the courses and survey in this pathway. This pathway is available to Standard, Professional, Enterprise, and Educational users.

There have been several additional video updates to existing courses in the last few weeks, including a new video on sketch imprinting in Introduction to Sketching, update to the extrude videos in Part Design Using Part Studios and Introduction to Part Design, video updates on the Ball mate in Onshape Assemblies, and a new video on Full round fillet in the Advanced Part Design course.
