We are releasing our second update for October. This release brings major improvements, including the Where Used functionality for Professional users, new Onshape Learning Center courses, and more!
HOLE FEATURE IMPROVEMENTS
The Hole feature interface hasn't changed, but we've made some changes to improve the user experience. These updates are present in all new, but not existing Hole features.
The Where Used functionality is now in Onshape Professional!
OPEN ARROWHEAD STYLE
The Drawing Properties contain a new open arrowhead style in the annotations, dimensions, and views (section and detail) options.
This release brings the exciting addition of inspection items!
Onshape REST API now supports basic authentication to improve ease-of-use and bring our authentication in line with other cloud software companies.
LEARNING CENTER IMPROVEMENTS
Onshape Enterprise for Light Users: Educate light users within the enterprise to effectively navigate and use Onshape. This course is geared to enterprise light users that may be unfamiliar with CAD and PDM tools. The content in this course helps users who are not designers or engineers navigate Onshape to view parts, assemblies, and drawings. This new self-paced course is available to Standard, Professional, Enterprise, and Educational users.
Self-Guided Training Format: The Onshape training team has created all of the live professional-level classes in an on-demand format, which we are calling self-guided. This new format offers another way for professionals to learn the same topics taught in virtual classroom sessions, on their own schedules. These self-guided courses offer the same course materials and hands-on exercises as the live training sessions and include recorded videos for each topic. There also is a way to reach out to the Onshape training team for any questions you might have!
There have been several additional video updates to existing courses in the Onshape Learning Center, including a new video on sketch inferencing in Introduction to Sketching, a new video exploring Assembly folders within the Instance list in Onshape Assemblies, and a few new videos in the Detailed Drawings course explaining hatching, Hole tables, and Revision tables.
Please take a moment to try out these new features and improvements and leave your comments on the Onshape Forum. 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.
