Just like that, after another three weeks, here's another release of Onshape with a lot of amazing new features! Let's take a look.
You can now wrap sketch or surface entities around a cylinder.
ASSEMBLY AND FEATURE PATTERN INSTANCES
Feature and assembly patterns are now able to evaluate an instance count of one. This is extremely useful when setting up configurations, as no extra features are needed to handle a configuration that requires a pattern instance count of one.
CONFIGURATION TABLE IMPROVEMENTS
Copying and pasting data into a configuration table will now automatically add rows to the configuration table so that all of the data fits. This is an improvement from having to add each row manually before pasting in the data. To get started with configurations, visit our learning center.
ASSEMBLY DIAGNOSTICS IMPROVEMENTS
We have improved the information Onshape gives you when there is a subassembly error and you are trying to diagnose it from the top-level assembly. This will allow for faster mate resolutions when piecing together all of your sub-assemblies.
TAB DELETION WARNING
When you delete a tab in Onshape, you will now be warned if this will cause conflicts elsewhere. This will help you understand the implications of that action before making a decision. Clicking "Delete" finalizes the deletion, while selecting "Cancel" closes the dialog without deleting any tabs. If the tab is able to be deleted without causing any conflicts, it will simply be deleted with no warning.
Reordering of selections is now available for an expanded list of features where the order of selection matters. Previously, you had to redo a selection if an error was made or new entities were introduced. Now you will be able to reorder the selections made within fit spine points, boolean, transform by line, and assembly mates.
HIGHLIGHT BOUNDARY EDGES
A new view tool is now available to toggle highlighting boundary (or laminar) surface edges. This will aid in identifying areas of an imported model which need repair and will also assist with surfacing workflows. See our help documentation for more information on repairing imported models.
ATTACH GD&T TO HOLE CALLOUTS
GD&T can now be attached to hole callouts.
DRAWING WATERMARK IMPROVEMENTS
Within the Release Management settings, the company now has the option to hide watermarks on drawings that are marked as not revision managed.
SPECIFY STARTUP PAGE
Onshape Enterprise users can now specify their start page (Analytics, Documents, Activity, or Action Items). Upon logging into Onshape, this will be the page they see. This is also available for the Android mobile app.
SUPPORT FOR LIST-TYPE WORKFLOW PROPERTIES
Administrators can now include list-type properties when setting up custom workflows for Release Management.
TASK MANAGEMENT IN COMMENTS
The Android mobile app now supports task assignment. If multiple users are mentioned in a comment, there is a drop-down menu to select which user to assign the task to.
IOS NOTIFICATION CENTER
iOS users now have access to a notification center that lists out all of their notifications. This includes the ability to search and filter notifications.
BOTTOM NAVIGATION IMPROVEMENTS
Both the iOS and Android apps have improved bottom navigation interfaces for a better user experience.
