Trash Retention Period 

For Onshape Enterprise customers, a new trash retention period of 90 days has been introduced. Any Documents that have been in the trash for 90 days or more will be permanently deleted and cannot be restored. For Onshape Professional and all other plans, the default 30-day retention period remains unchanged.

Part Studios

G3 Curvature for Bridging Curves

A Bridging curve can now maintain G3 continuity with adjacent curves and surfaces to create smoother and higher-quality geometry.

Thin Loft

The Loft feature now has a thin option. 

Curve Colors

Curves and Composite parts containing curves can now have appearances applied.

Pitch and Thread Classes

Tapped holes now include their pitch classification (UNC, UNF, UNEF, or UNEEF for Inch threads, Fine or Coarse for Metric threads) to make it easier to distinguish which type of fastener will be used. Also, Thread class is now optional for applications where this level of detail is not required.

Pitch and Thread Classes


Mate Connector at Instance Origin

Assembly Mate connectors can now be created at the origin of a Part or subassembly instance.

Export Selected Parts and Step Export Units

Multiple selected Parts can now be exported from an Assembly as a single file (so the part positions stay relative to the Assembly origin). The units of a STEP file can also be modified before export.

To annotate small features or just to add more clarity to a Drawing, a Detail view can now be created from an existing Detail view.
