It's the first update of 2024, and we are hitting the ground running. This update includes a number of highly-requested improvements, so we hope you enjoy it! Let's dive in.

But first, please take a moment to try out these new features and improvements and leave your comments in the Onshape Forums post. For a detailed list of all the changes in this update, please see the changelog.

CAD Improvements


You can now insert Decals into Part Studios. Decals are visible in Part Studios, assemblies, and shaded drawing views, and can be useful for inserting company logos or warning/hazard labels.

Offset Curve

Offset curve allows you to offset an edge as a curve on a face. This has a number of uses, as it makes it easy to create offset curves that are attached to a face.

Filter Branches

You can now filter the version graph to only show branches with active workspaces. This makes it easier to filter out old information.

Derived Improvements

Hide and show the individual entities inserted using a Derived feature. In the past, this was limited to hiding or showing the entire feature. This also includes Custom Features that import other features.

View-Only Display States

Display states can now be shared with View-only permissions. This makes it easier for non-CAD users to navigate a complex assembly.

Release Variable Studio

It is now possible to release Variable studios. This allows Variable Studios to go through your company's defined approval and release processes.
