GUIDES AND END CONDITIONS IN LOFT

You can now use a combination of guides and end conditions in the Loft command. In the past, you had to choose one or the other.

SAVE SECTION VIEWS AS NAMED VIEWS

With this update comes the ability to save section views as named views in your model. This can be useful if you find yourself consistently creating the same section view. Simply create a named view while in your section view and it will be easy to return to that view at a later point.

COPY/PASTE CONTEXT MENU IN ONSHAPE DRAWINGS

You can now right-click "Copy" and right-click "Paste" entities in Onshape Drawings. In this past this was limited to keyboard shortcuts.

WELD SYMBOL IMPROVEMENTS

A few important improvements to Weld symbols were added with this release. This includes live updates to the Weld symbol preview, as well as support for staggered welds.

ORDERED ARRAY OF FEATURESCRIPT PARAMETERS

The foundation has been laid to allow you to make per selection changes to parameters in Onshape while creating a feature. This means you can have different settings for each selection within a dialog. Currently, you can only see this in the Fill command (where you can make "per edge" continuity choices), but we are working on more features with this capability. Below is an example of the custom "Port Feature" that has been modified to allow the user to change port size for each selection.

PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS

Performance has been improved in several areas including assemblies, drawings, holes and more.
