Onshape on Xbox Series X?

So, I’ve heard that the Xbox Series X got a new browser that supports mouse and keyboard. I wonder if it would be a better experience to use for CAD than the school Chromebooks my students have, if it even works. I don’t have an Xbox Series X to test with but it would be interesting to find out if it works, if only to be able to tell my students that it’s an option if they don’t have access to a better system.


Nevermind, I just answered my own question.

This would be a game-changer for our FTC team as well if it did work. I’m pretty sure nearly all of our students have at least one console which is significantly more powerful than their most powerful computer at home.

I like the idea that it gamifies CAD a bit too even if it is not an actual game.

Can someone who has a series-x do some field testing for us?

Affirmative on an Xbox One. :smiley:

I saw the LTT video on this last night and had the exact same idea haha. Sadly, it looks like Edge is so . . . cruddy that the performance check won’t even run:

It was laggy to say the least. I assume it’s using software rendering now and I would be amazed if there is the ability to setup hardware acceleration. Series X or S might be a different story though . . .


I feel like “does it work with Onshape” is the new “but can it run Doom?”. I look forward to whoever first runs Onshape on their smart refrigerator.




I wonder if there’s any way to interface a mouse and keyboard to an Amazon Firestick

You joke, but this is more or less what Fusion 360 for Chromebooks is.

“Mom, I need to bring my Xbox to school. Its for… uh… robotics.”


I have bad news for anyone who wants to CAD while the TV’s tied up: it’s not loading.


Maybe predictably the OG Wii is also a no-go… LG WebOS TVs with a similar pointing remote, however…
