May is here and we’re kicking off this month with an update! This release has a lot of exciting new drawing improvements. Let’s take a look.
FULL ROUND FILLET
The Fillet tool has been improved to create full round fillets.
DATE FORMAT IMPROVEMENTS
Onshape added support for dd-mm-yyyy, d-MMM-yyyy, dd/mm/yy, dd/mm/yyyy, dd.mm.yy, and dd.mm.yyyy in drawing notes and the revision table.
DEFAULT OPTION FOR VIEW SIMPLIFICATION
A new default option for View Simplification has been added to Onshape Drawings. You can choose from None, Absolute, Ratio to Studio, Ratio to Part, and Automatic. For best performance, it is still recommended to leave it on Automatic unless it is necessary to change it.
DETAIL VIEW IMPROVEMENTS
You can now show/hide sketches in detail views.
COPY LINK FROM DETAILS PANEL
The Details panel has been improved to include a direct link and copy link as a part of the Document Title.
EXPORT RULE IMPROVEMENTS
Export Rules have been expanded to be more versatile. Export Rules now include Part Studio properties. They also trigger when exporting a face or sheet metal flat pattern. Additionally, for Onshape’s Enterprise and Professional plans, Export Rules can reference the referenced part properties.
ANDROID ASSEMBLY CONFIGURATIONS
Android now supports changing configurations within an assembly.
ANDROID AND IOS “WHERE USED” FOR ENTERPRISE
Enterprise users can now take advantage of the Where Used command with Android and iOS apps.
RELEASE CANDIDATE ALIASES
Release Management is now improved with the use of Aliases.
ClassLink has been added as an SSO provider for Onshape. To set it up, follow the directions in the Help documentation.
ONSHAPE LEARNING CENTER IMPROVEMENTS
We’re excited to announce that Onscale, creators of the cloud-connected simulation app, have created the Onscale Solve Simulation Fundamentals training course in the Onshape Learning Center. This new course has 4 sections, 11 lessons, 2 exercises, and over 2 hours of video.
