Product Details

What is Onshape?

Onshape is a cloud-native product development platform with integrated CAD, data management and analytics. Onshape aims to accelerate time to market and improve innovation by:

1) Access: Unlike file-based CAD which is on-premise only, Onshape enables remote access for designers and engineers from anywhere, and on any internet-connected device -including tablets and smart phones.

2) Collaboration: Onshape aims to eliminate the version control problems and blocking of file-based CAD and PDM systems by enabling real-time, simultaneous access and collaboration for designers and engineers.

The vendor boasts over 2 million users who work in Onshape to modernize and streamline their product development cycle. According to the vendor, Onshape users in 170+ countries have logged over 6 million hours modeling advanced robotics, biomedical devices, industrial machinery, agriculture equipment, and consumer products. Onshape is designed to be an anywhere, anytime CAD system. The vendor reports that 1 in 8 sessions occur on mobile devices.

Founded in 2012, the Onshape leadership team includes the original creators of SOLIDWORKS® and other leaders in cloud infrastructure, data security, and mobile. PTC purchased Onshape in 2019.

Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

That was a while ago, but it was basically sign up and go. The online tutorial materials are great and really, once you get going, it is remarkably easy to learn. Plus there are plenty of tutorial videos on a whole host of topics that clearly illustrate how to do various tasks. I am largely self-taught and that is coming from a place where I was familiar with 3D CAD, but had never really dug in to learn it. At this point there are not too many things that I am afraid to tackle based on just using it.

Easy to implement when high-end CAD workstations are not required. Just a good internet connection and decent easy user setup (adding, removing, or adjusting permissions). Company-wide setting takes some time to set up, but that process is pretty easy.

It takes time to get to know the software. It opens new possibilities in traditional design. Your team will need to collectively learn to think differently about workflow CAD has always been an individual endeavor; one model, one person at a time. Onshape frees design and supports innovation without worrying about broken links, blowing up mating structures, and misaligned hole patterns
