Table of Contents
It's June, time for our 8th(!) update of the year, and this one is big. It includes improvements to nearly all aspects of Onshape, so there should be something for everyone to get excited about!
Let's get started.
You can now trim (or extend) a curve.
Variables in Sketch Pattern Instance Counts
You can now assign a Variable to a Sketch pattern instance count.
Standard Content Metadata
You can now edit more properties associated with Standard Content. In the past, the only editable properties associated with Standard Content were “Part number” and “Description”.
New Sketch Text Fonts
20 new sketch text fonts have been added with this update.
M PLUS Rounded 1c
Source Sans Pro
Hole Feature Improvements
New termination conditions have been added to the Hole feature including "Up to next" and "Up to entity."
Join Adjacent Surfaces
You will find a new import option to "Join adjacent surfaces." This new option allows you to simplify imported parts with many adjoining surfaces by merging them together during import.
Performance Indicator Improvements
New icons have been added to the Performance Panel to alert you to poorly performing Part Studios.
Drawing Dimension Improvements
Drawing dimensions with bent leaders now have an adjustable jog point at the bend.
You can now define “Numbering schemes” and auto-generate part numbers for items and Standard Content.
Render Studio Improvements
New Render Studio Appearances
Nearly 900 new appearances were added to Render Studio with this update, including many popular and useful new metals, fabrics, paints, and plastics.
When creating or updating a Render Studio scene, you can now use the per-part tessellation quality set in each part’s Appearance Panel in its Part Studio, giving you a greater degree of tessellation quality control. This is the default setting. Prior to this update, the Part Studio and Render Studio tessellation settings were independent of each other.
Onshape-Arena Connection Improvements
Support for Standard Content and Items
Standard content and Items can now be synced with Arena PLM.
