Correct Display of Tapered Threads in Drawings
Simplified drawing representation of new tapered threads according to the ANSI, ISO, and JIS drawing standards is available.
Improved Conversion to Draft Entities
Model edges more efficiently convert to multiple draft types such as Draft lines, Draft arcs, Draft splines, and Draft ellipses.
Draft Datum Improvements
You can create parametric draft datums using the Vertex or On Entity options. The leader and elbow segments of a set datum tag are independently controlled and adjustable.
Updates to Active Layers
Objects maintain their active layer status as you navigate between open windows. When a layer is activated, layers with the same name are activated in any submodels.
Extension Lines for Symbols Attached to Draft Entities
You can drag a symbol or surface finish off a straight draft entity or straight model curve, and create extension lines.
Superscripted Symmetric Tolerance Display
You can set symmetric tolerances to appear superscripted from the nominal dimension value.
Setting the Display of Significant Digits
The detail setup option, dim_trail_zero_max_places, sets the number of decimal places when trailing zeroes are used to reach the number of decimal places set by configuration option default_dec_places.
Offset Notes to Reference Points and Axes
You can create an offset note referencing datum points and axes in a drawing. You can create Hole table callouts that are either offset or on-axis, and remain offset during geometry modifications.
Allow Limited Visibility in Unfolded Views
You can set the visible area of an unfolded view to Full view, Half view, Partial view, or Broken view. You can convert any broken view back to a full view.
Shortcut to Layer Commands
The following layer commands are removed from the Visibility menu (View > Visibility) and relocated under Layer in the Layer tree: Isolate, Hidden Line, Copy Status From, and Drawing Dependent.
Improvements to Crosshatches in Drawings
Crosshatches in drawings have greater flexibility. You can use the same workflow for controlling section attributes for 2D sketches and 2D sections. You can also control the visibility of entire sections, components, or component areas. You can hatch or fill flat surfaces. You can control hidden-line removal (HLR) for surface and 2D section crosshatches, and you can control default visibility of crosshatches for 2D and 3D sections.
Datum Tag Placement in Drawings
Tag placement for set datums attached to Geometric Tolerances (GTOLs) is controlled by where you click on the GTOL to place the tag.
Bill of Material (BOM) Balloon Support for Flexible Components and Family Tables
You can now create BOM balloons for Flexible components, Bulk items, Included items, and family table top-generic instances.
Controling Leading and Trailing Zeros for Geometric Tolerances
In drawings, the drawing setup option gtol_lead_trail_zeroes controls leading and trailing zeros for geometric tolerances (GTOLs). This setting for GTOLS is independent of what is set for dimensions using the drawing setup option lead_trail_zeros.
Control of View Name Placement
You can control the placement of a drawing view name by using the drawing setup option default_view_label_placement.
Selecting Silhouette Edges of Nonanalytic Surfaces
In Drawing mode you can reference the silhouette edges that are created by nonanalytic surfaces.
Improvements to Basic Dimension Types
When text is added to basic dimensions such as a prefix or suffix, the content appears outside of the basic dimension box.
Set Datum Tag Improvements in Drawings
You can attach draft set datum tags to model arcs, model circles, draft arcs, and draft circles.
Expanded Basis for a Mirroring Operation
When mirroring draft entities in a drawing, you can select any straight entity as the mirror plane. Previously, you could use straight draft lines and straight construction lines.
