It's update time again! This update has a heavy focus on improvements to performance and drawings. Let's jump in.
DRAWING SECTION VIEW PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS
The performance of large assembly section views has been improved with this update to Onshape Drawings. To do this, we've used our architecture in a unique way to generate section views concurrently.
STANDARD CONTENT IMPROVEMENTS
All standard content inserted into the assembly will now have an automatically generated name and description that includes details like the size, length, etc.
ADDITIONAL DRAWING PROPERTIES
Additional drawing properties have been added to the Drawing Properties flyout. These new properties allow you to set the line thickness, color, and more of section view lines, detail view circle lines, break lines, flat pattern view lines, center marks, sketch geometry, and more.
IMPORT INTO FOLDER
You'll find a new menu option to import when right-clicking a folder in the tab manager. This is especially useful if you typically stored imported files in folders as it allows you to import files straight to a folder.
THUMBNAILS FOR IMPORTED DXF, DWG, AND DWT FILES
You will now see thumbnail images for imported DXF, DWG, and DWT files.
IMPROVED TABLE DRAG BEHAVIOR IN ONSHAPE DRAWINGS
The drag behavior of tables in Onshape Drawings has improved with this update. Dragging by the middle grip points will resize the table, and dragging one of the corner grip points will move the table.
SUPPORT FOR DIN STANDARD IN HOLE FEATURE
The DIN Standard is now a supported standard when creating holes using the Hole Feature.
DERIVED FEATURE IMPROVEMENTS
In the past, the hide/show state of a derived feature was taken from the source. This meant that if you inserted a part as derived, then hid the source part, it would have also be hidden in the derived part. This behavior has been changed. When inserting derived features, they now will maintain the hide/show state that they were originally inserted with.
With Onshape Professional, you can now delegate approvals to others. This is great if you are away from your desk and want any approvals to automatically go to someone who is available.
