Version 1.9.0Monday, 27 March 2023
Edges are now consistently smoother, for higher surface quality. A wider range of geometry changes is now supported in Symmetry mode.
User experience improvements:
Edges: underlying technology improved
The Phi mathematical infrastructure has evolved: Edges are now consistently smoother, resulting in higher surface quality.
Adding/removing vertices in Symmetry:
Symmetry mode now supports adding or removing vertices, as well as related operation. The underlying symmetries are updated automatically to reflect the new geometry.
No "_phi" suffix when sending to Onshape.
The Part Studio tab created when "Sending to Onshape" has the expected name, without a "_phi" suffix.
Free plan in-app announcement
Non-paying users who launch Phi in a private document will get a notification that "Private document editing will not be allowed in Phi Free plan after May 1, 2023."
Added stay/exit buttons in tutorials warning modal
White mode contrast
Elements are now more distinguishable against white background.
Better timing of autosaving.
- Avoid saving simultaneously twice
- Disable autosave while file is loading
- Disable autosave in tutorials mode
Dropdown menus contrast (occurred in Windows OS) is now fixed.
Prevent tooltips from hiding some bottom bar elements
Disable rotation while drawing edge or carving
- Set default units if not found in phi file
- When refreshing, set the current unit back to the default onshape unit
Clipping planes now initialise properly
File selector having double scrollbars in small screen resolutions
Scaling manipulator balls now correctly finds scale axis
Fixed performance issues when loading large stl files
Doesn't display grid size message unnecessarily
Doesn't show hidden reference bodies when snapping
- Don't change file name when loading reference model
- Αvoid double counters when auto incrementing file name counters
When editing tangents, clicking on manipulator rotate arrows (for precise rotation) now rotates tangents, not entire edges
Fix modals not closing properly when ESC key is used, or when the backdrop is clicked
Allow user to abort setting symmetry by clicking the button again or by pressing ESC
Shift+I respects edge shapes
