CUSTOM PROPERTIES

Onshape has a new properties editor with additional custom properties. Companies can also create new custom properties for an entire Document or specific properties for Parts, Assemblies and Drawings. These properties can also be mandatory for Company owned Documents.

INSERT PART / ASSEMBLY PROPERTIES INTO NOTES

Any of the properties created above can now be added to a drawing as a note or in a title block and saved as a drawing template.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

MOVE FACE UP TO ENTITY

When using Move Face to translate or offset a solid, surface or sheet metal face, you can now specify an entity to move up to with an optional offset.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

COPY / OFFSET SURFACE

Continuing with the Move Face theme, you can now copy surfaces or create offset surfaces using all the capabilities of the Move Face feature.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

SWEEP PATH

Now when you create a sweep, the profile plane can intersect the path at any location.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

MEASUREMENT DISPLAY PRECISION

The measurement and mass properties tools now follow the length and mass display precision settings in the Document.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

UP TO PART AND SHEET METAL BEND LINES

Sheet metal parts can now be used as a geometric reference when designing other parts and bend lines are generated automatically in the flat view and in drawings.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

THREADS, VIRTUAL SHARPS AND QUADRANTS

Annotating threads, virtual intersections and adding max/min arc dimensions just got a "hole" lot easier.
