We are excited to bring you our second update this month! This update includes a highly requested new drawing feature as well as several improvements in different areas of Onshape. Let's dig in.
PART OUT A TAB FOLDER
Creating folders is a convenient way to organize tabs within an Onshape Document. With this release, you can now move an entire folder out of a Document and into a new Document in one go.
SPANISH LANGUAGE SUPPORT
Onshape’s User Interface can now be displayed in Spanish (Universal). Go to “My Account > Preferences > Display Language” to change languages for individual users.
EXTENDED PERFORMANCE ADVISOR
The Performance Advisor feature has been improved with this update of Onshape. You’ll find a new “Connection” section that gives you ping time and connection region information.
LEARNING CENTER IMPROVEMENT
A new technical briefing has been added in the Onshape Learning Center, “How to Use ‘Where Used.’” The briefing explains how to enhance your engineering workflows to capture all design changes in parent assemblies and drawings by using “Where Used.”
EDIT CROSS-HATCHING IN DRAWING SECTION VIEWS
In this release, we have added the highly requested feature to modify cross-hatching on section views. You can now modify the spacing, the angle and the color of the cross-hatching. More Hatching styles will be added in the future.
SYMMETRIC THROUGH ALL COMMAND
Until now, the cutting through All Command only went in one direction. Doing the same thing with a symmetric extrude required typing a large enough number. With this release, the Symmetric option is now available as a checkbox for “Blind” and “Through all,” giving you more flexibility in your designs.
ANALYTICS: IP TRACKING DASHBOARD
The Onshape Enterprise plan provides dashboards for a variety of categories of information. In this release, we have added a new Intellectual Property (IP) Tracking dashboard to help track IP by identifying all Document exports, copies and access locations.
IMPROVED PUBLIC DOCUMENT ACCESS FOR ENTERPRISES
Onshape Enterprise users with access to view public Documents can now open public Document links from places like the Onshape Forums and Custom Features library. Additionally, all Enterprise users can now open Documents from the Learning Center in their Enterprise account. These updates are particularly important for users provisioned through single sign-on services who were previously unable to open public Documents.
DESTINATION DOCUMENT LINK IN AUDIT TRAIL
When viewing "copy workspace" events in the audit trail, the event description now includes the name of the destination Document created when copying another Document. If you click on the Overflow menu for this event, you'll see an option to open the destination Document.
RENEW EDUCATION SUBSCRIPTION
Onshape Education subscriptions can now be renewed in the Subscription section of “My account.”
IOS IPAD SPLIT VIEWS
Split views inside a Document are now available. You can now access Document details and actions, share information, and “Where Used” results in a convenient panel that can be expanded, resized, and collapsed as desired.
Please take a moment to try out these new features and improvements and leave your comments below. For a detailed list of all the changes in this update, please see the changelog.
Remember: The updates listed here are now live for all users when creating new Onshape Documents and over the next few days these features will also be available in Documents created before the date of this update.
