Release 244 - January 2023

Hi. There’s an absolutely massive list of new features today, in addition to the latest Player updates (Tulip Player 2.0.0 - Jan 2023). The Analytics team has put in a mix of usability cleanups and Vision gets a long list of brand new things.

Global mute/unmute for navigation clicks between steps was also added, h/t to @Technicallykatie for the world’s best-written product suggestion.

Read the rest, get building, and keep those product suggestions coming!

Still STL format only. STEP support is coming and this fix included some prerequisites for STEP support. Also changed behavior for sourcing a CAD file for the widget to allow either “Static Value” or “Variable” source; when using “Variable” source pick the “File” type variable.

Being able to mute that “click” globally by default is priceless! :brown_heart:
