Improvements to Onshape Mobile - February 15th, 2016

Here's the latest round of updates for iOS and Android:

Highlights include:

  1. NEW Universal Toolbar for iPhone and iPad (iOS)

    IPad_Air_2png

    The Onshape App for iOS now sports the same set of toolbars for sketch, features, and assembly mates across iPhone and iPad. This change makes it easier for you to transition between each type of device and find commands quickly. On the iPad, you can select all commands using just your left thumb, so there’s no need to stretch your hands, especially on the larger screen of the iPad Pro.

  2. UPDATED Extended Hole Feature (iOS)



    You can now create standard ANSI inch and ISO metric holes, using the Hole feature on iOS devices. To create a standard hole, specify the standard, size, depth, and if it’s a clearance, tapped or drilled hole. If it’s tapped, the correct drill size will be selected for you. When bolting two or more plates together, you can specify that the top plates have clearance holes and the bottom plate is tapped.

  3. NEW Silhouette Edges (iOS)



    You can now see the silhouette edges of parts and assemblies that have cylindrical features, in “Hidden edges removed” and “Hidden edges visible” view modes, when the model is stationary.

  4. NEW Center Point Arc (Android)



    You can now create a Center Point Arc when sketching by defining the center, start, and end points. Tap the icon shown above, tap to locate the center of the arc, then tap to locate the start point and drag or tap to position the end point.


We hope you like the improvements in this release across both iOS and Android.  The development teams are hard at work bringing parity to mobile and adjusting to new technologies and capability launched with every new release.  Both iOS and Android are available from the Apple App Store and Google Play for download.

    Thank you for this great tool.
    However since yesterday update, I can't use OnShape as the update just crashed with a message talking about Error 505.
    Tried to uninstall and reinstall, but no luck, still the same error.

    Hi Flanbix - did the problem occur during the Google Play update? We have no error logs that might suggest it is Onshape causing the error code, nor have we experienced it ourselves, but if you Google "android error 505" you will find numerous sites suggesting how to fix this (e.g. http://www.pntbrother.com/google-play-unknown-error-505-lollipop). Please try these suggestions and let us know if you resolve the issue.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I had Onshape open, Google Play asked for an update to be install, then I had the error since.
    I tried these different methods earlier without success too.

    One of the suggestions is to factory reset the device (backup first) - is that possible to do?

    I rather not do that for now.
    I tried to install for the first time on an LG G4 under 6.0 and I had the same problem.
    However I was able to install it fine on an "old" HTC One X (4.2.2), after I updated the Google Play services (I had the message: "This app won't run unless you ...").

    I have a Nexus 6P running Android 6.0.1. I got the update notification but after the app appears to download I get a message saying "Can't install app. Onshape can't be installed. Try again, and if the continues, get help troubleshooting. (Error code: -505). The current version still works.

    Ok thanks for the info. We're investigating to see if there is something we can do this end.
