Onshape snuck one in on us last Friday. 

By which I mean, we totally missed the 11 new updates/improvements released that make the previous curve-rich update even more convincing that surfacing is maybe, could be, definitely on it’s way to Onshape. Oh, glorious day that will be!

Top 3 Onshape Updates (05.05.17)

Composite Curve – Crakalackin’ Curve Combo! Create a single curve comprised of sketch geometry, edges, curves, or any combination of these.

3D Fit Spline – Click, click curve! Create a 3D spline through selected points. Start and End direction vectors and magnitude allow you to control the spline’s shape.

Insert DXF/DWG in Onshape Drawing – Use your existing templates! You can now insert a DXF or DWG into an Onshape Drawing. (SUPER important for migrating to Onshape.)

This is a very small behemoth of an online community about 3D CAD, technology, design, robots, ninjas… Ok, maybe not ninjas so much, but those guys are COOL so there just might be something about some dang ninjas. Besides the occasional blast of intensely cool product design and technology, we look at what’s going on in the world of 3D, add a splash of business insight and web tech into the mix and there ya got your SolidSmack.
