Overall Satisfaction with Onshape

We use Onshape as our primary CAD system and converted over from another major CAD system just in time for the COVID lockdowns. Very glad we did due to the ability to work remotely with other team members. I haven't looked back. I've used CAD systems for 20 years and Onshape is by far my favorite of the past 20 years. I've admin'd other CAD systems in the past which has always been a headache, whether it's managing the files, shared hardware, user controls, revision, ... All of it is better in Onshape.
  • Remote Work Enabled
  • Multi-User Design
  • Administration
  • Revision Control
  • Search Function
  • Reduced IT Costs
  • Reduced Administration Costs
  • Improved access to data for non-CAD users
  • Easier creation of Bill of Materials
Support is built in. It lets you take a screenshot and mark it up in the support system. It lets me easily share a document with support and they will generally investigate the issue promptly (within 24 hours, sometimes within an hour). Generally they can fix it quickly as well. I also submit feature requests this way as well and get feedback with that. No email needed! All within Onshape.
No key insights.
Night and day. I love the ability for a user to branch, and then submit those design changes to the lead designer (me) for review and merging into the main branch.

COVID lockdowns hit and you need to work from home ASAP. With ONshape you already have cloud-based computing straight from your work computer; you can easily do this at home with your home computer, or just take your work laptop home and work on that. To go from "in office" to "at home" work takes near-zero time. Other CAD systems require lengthy installs or moving desktops around or ensuring you have VPN access to a work server. None of that is needed. Administration of this across the users is incredibly simple.
