On behalf of everyone here at Onshape, I would like to wish you all a happy and successful New Year! This is the first of many updates for 2021. If you have any great ideas for new features or functionality that would benefit the entire Onshape community, please head on over to the Onshape Forums and create an Improvement Request.
Here’s what’s new in this latest release:
The User Interface can now display French. Go to My Account > Preferences > Display Language to change for individual users.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION FOR FEATURE CONTROL FRAMES
Geometric Tolerances sometimes need additional information to make manufacturing and inspection details easier to understand. A new text box have been added to the Geometric Tolerance dialog in drawings to associate any additional required information.
We have also expanded the drop-down menu with additional symbols that can be added within the Feature Controls frame.
TEAM ACTIVITY DASHBOARD
Go to Analytics > Users > Team List to see all the teams in your Enterprise. Click on the drill-down menu next to each team name to display the Team Activity and Team Setup Dashboards.
The Team Activity Dashboard shows you all team members and their activities.
The Team Setup Dashboard shows all your members of a team and lists the Onshape Documents shared with the team.
ISOLATE IN PART STUDIO
In more complex Part Studios, you now can isolate one or more parts and adjust the isolation distance by dragging the slider. This helps you to quickly highlight a specific part of your design.
UNIT SELECTION WHEN IMPORTING OBJ AND STL FILES
OBJ and STL files are unitless by default. To import these parts at the desired scale, you can now specify their units in the import dialog.
AUTOMATICALLY INACTIVATE MATES
Onshape will now make mates and mate connectors inactive when you suppress parts or assemblies.

Remember: The updates listed here are now live for all users when creating new Documents and over the next few days these features will also be available in Documents created before the date of this update.
