Another 3 weeks, another update – and another chance to show you all the awesome things we have been working on to make your life easier! Let's dig in...

COPY ASSEMBLIES AND DRAWINGS TO CLIPBOARD

You can now copy assemblies and drawings to the clipboard, then paste them into another Onshape Document. All references to the assembly and drawing will also be copied. The copied assembly or drawing is not linked to the original.

ATTACH GEOMETRIC TOLERANCE TO DIMENSION

You can now attach a Geometric Tolerance to a dimension in Onshape Drawings. Simply drag the symbol over a dimension on initial insert or after it has been placed. You can detach at any time by dragging the symbol away from the dimension.

DRAWING PROPERTIES IN RIGHT-MOUSE CLICK MENU

You'll find a new "Drawing Properties" option when right-clicking in an Onshape Drawing. In the past, this was only available as an icon in the toolbar.

COLLAPSE PARTS LIST

You can now collapse the Parts List in your Part Studio.

IMPORT INTO MULTIPLE DOCUMENTS

You will find a new option when importing assemblies to "Split Assemblies and parts into multiple documents." This will create Documents for each sub-assembly and part and organize them into a folder named after the top level. To maintain ideal performance, there will be a limit to the number of parts that you can import with this option.

SELECT EDGES IN “SHADED WITHOUT EDGES” DISPLAY STYLE

You can now select edges when using the "Shaded without Edges" display style.

IMPROVEMENTS TO THE ONSHAPE LEARNING CENTER

We've added two new advanced courses to the Onshape Learning Center exclusively for Professional users: Simultaneous Sheet Metal and Managed In-Context Design. In addition, we've also made the Onshape Fundamentals Learning Pathways free for everyone (in the past, these courses were limited to Onshape Professional users).
