Designs evolve over time, involving many design iterations. To manage these iterations, Onshape has built version management into its core. Saving a version to capture a milestone in your design is simple. But how can we compare these different versions created over time? With a recent update, Onshape added the Compare command.

Compare is a great way to get both a list and a visual reference of all the changes between Versions, Workspaces, or even moments in History in a Part Studio. To use Compare, select the Compare command from the dropdown menu in the Versions Manager or History menu.

The Compare command gives both a visual, as well as a list-based comparison. This allows you to not only see the changes in the graphics, but also see the specific differences in features between the two versions you are comparing.
