As we near the end of the year, Onshape brings an exciting new release with big general improvements to the product!
CONSTANT WIDTH FILLET
Fillets can now be defined by a constant width for cosmetically pleasing transitions between faces.
RENDER OPTIONS FOR TANGENT EDGES
Tangent edges can now be visualized in the graphics window of the Part Studio. Allowing you to render them as phantom, visible, or hidden.
GENERAL TASKS AND ACTION ITEMS
We have added the ability to generate tasks in the action items tab that don’t need to reference a comment or document, allowing you to manage tasks at large through the action items interface.
CONTROL LINE STYLE PITCH
Drawing properties now allow for greater control of line style for center lines, hidden lines, and phantom tangent lines.
ADD ALIGNED SECTION VIEW
When previously representing complex cylindrical objects in a Drawing it could be arduous to clarify small nuances utilizing the regular section view. Aligned view will help you represent these parts with more clarity.
DOWNLOAD USER LIST TO A CSV FILE
For bulk removal of users in Enterprise accounts, we have added an option to download the entire user list, allowing you to more effectively manage licence provisioning.
NEW GLOBAL PERMISSION – MANAGE WORKFLOW
Enterprise users can now publish and debug workflows without being a full administrator.
DEBUG MODE AND AUDIT LOG
Modifying and testing workflows just became easier with the addition of two new developer tools.
Anyone with the Manage Workflows global permission can now submit an item through a workflow in “Debug Mode” by selecting a checkbox in the “Select Workflow” dialog. Debug Mode will reference the workspace of that workflow, allowing testing, debugging, and iteration without needing to publish the workflow to the entire company.
To further assist with debugging, we have added the option to “View Audit Log” within any release package. This log will contain information about events that happened to objects passing through the workflow. Note that this information is also available to Professional users as well as through the API.
PROPERTY UPDATES UPON TRANSITION
Custom workflows can now leverage FeatureScript by referencing a function in a transition action. This transition action is named "updateItemPropertiesFromFeatureScript", and usage details can be found in the help documentation.
