It has been exactly three weeks since our last update and, like clockwork, we are back with another long list of improvements requested by you! 

So without further ado, let's dive in. 

highlights from this release including categories in BOM

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

Remember: The updates listed here are now live for all users when creating new Documents. Over the next few days, these features will also be available in Documents created before this update.

General Improvements

List View

List View is a new, intuitive way to navigate your Onshape data based on your product's structure, rather than Documents. 

Draft in Rib Feature

You can now add Draft directly within the Rib feature.

Angle Reference in Frames

You can now define an angle reference when creating Frames in Onshape. This is useful when you want to define the angle of a Frame feature relative to other geometry.

Mid Plane in Thin-Extrude and Thicken

You can now define both Thin-extrude and Thicken features with a Mid plane offset. This allows you to create geometry that represents the center and quickly offset it equally in both directions. 

Categories in Bill of Materials

Categories can now be added to your Bill of Materials in Onshape. 

Copy/Paste from Part Studio

You can now copy a Part from a Part Studio and paste it into an assembly within the same Document. In the past, this was limited to parts already inserted into the assembly.

Convert Booleans and Text Parameters to Expression

You can now convert booleans and text parameters to an expression. Controlling booleans and text parameters with expressions can be especially useful when creating configurations.

Import Appearances

You will find a new option when importing to "Import appearances." It is on by default (meaning appearances are imported by default) but can be unchecked if you do not want the imported model's appearances.

Publication Improvements

If you share (with export permissions granted) a Publication using Link Sharing, the person you have shared with will have the option to print. This can be useful if you share with someone who does not have an Onshape account and wants to create screenshots for documentation, sales, or marketing purposes.

Drawings Improvements

Geometric Tolerance Improvements

You can now add information to all sides of a Geometric Tolerance symbol.

Circular Centermarks

You can now insert Circular Centermarks in Onshape Drawings. This is especially useful for defining bolt circles.

External Thread Improvements

External Threads now show a more accurate transition in Onshape Drawings.

FeatureScript Improvements

Where Used for Feature Studios

Where used now supports Feature Studios. This allows you to quickly find any Part Studio (or Feature Studio) where a specific custom feature has been inserted. 

Professional Improvements

Reassign Tasks

Onshape Professional and Enterprise users can now reassign tasks. In the past, the task needed to be deleted and recreated. Only the task creator and company administrator can reassign a task.

Enterprise Improvements

Team Filter for Action Item Analytics

You can now filter Action Item analytics by the team responsible for them. This gives you an easy way to see outstanding Tasks that belong to a specific team.
