We have another jam-packed update for you today! It includes major new pieces of functionality, as well as improvements to features you use every day. Let's get started.
We are excited to announce the beta launch of our new PCB Studio, now available to all Onshape Professional and Enterprise users. With support for industry-standard PCB file formats and dedicated circuit board component libraries, this new functionality makes it easier than ever to collaborate with engineers designing printed circuit boards.
