Here we are again with another update for you. A big focus for this update was improvements to Onshape Drawings and there are many. We hope you like them!

DIMENSION IMPROVEMENTS

The Dimension command in Onshape Drawings can now be used to create nearly any dimension. You no longer have to pre-select the correct dimension command from the toolbar.

EXPORT DRAWING DOWNLOAD OPTIONS

You can now export a drawing or sketch and store it as a tab in an Onshape Document. This is especially important for creating Drawing Templates. In the past, you had to export a template file and then import it into a Document. This new option eliminates that extra step.

WELD SYMBOL IMPROVEMENTS

We’ve added new support for Spot and Seam welds as well as a Drawings Properties option that allows you to specify which standard you want to use for your weld symbols.

DRAWING VIEW NAMES

You can now give a drawing view a name. In the View properties, you will see a new option for adding a name.


FLIP SKETCH TEXT

There are new options in the Sketch Text command to "Flip vertical" and "Flip Horizontal." These will allow you to flip the text you are creating. Also new is a preview window in the dialog that allows you to see a preview of the text before accepting it.
