Overall Satisfaction with Onshape

We are a OEM for unmanned aerial logistics. We are using onshape to design the aircrafts but also for the sake of organization, profissionalism, revision control, manufacturing team access, PDM, etc.

One of the problems that onshape solved was to work via cloud instead of local server. Another very import thing is the very low hardware requirement, as the system works on browser. The tool simply works perfectly.

  • Cloud accessibility and processing
  • CAD design
  • PDM
  • Customer support
  • Part Number creation
  • Catalogue visualization (for all PNs created)
  • Draft is a bit slow, but not a big deal
  • Faster documentation
  • Easier and reliable version control
  • Faster Learning Curve for new members
  • Reduced IT costs and time-consumption!
Super fast and kind, customized and human. I could go over emails or even whatsapp if needed, to make it faster. The embedded helpdesk allows you to share the document you have issues, so it makes super simple to solve the problem.
Implementation still ongoing, but untill now, I have no complains

For any modern company, where you have people working together remotely, web-based software is a must. Having no worries regarding hardware compatibility and server connection just makes everything simpler. It allows you to concentrate on what it is most important.
It takes the best from well-know platforms like SolidWorks, SolidEdge and Inventor and brings it to the modern age where you just access a cloud platform and do what you need, without installation and different software versions.

Plus, the git-base version control apllied to CAD models is just brilliant. Why nobody thought it before?

For both big and complex assemblies to less complicated products, onshape document-structure helps you avoiding the usual mess around parts and assemblies, sharing and obsolete files. So, for any startup or even big companies with well-structured workflows, onshape can be tailored to meet the demands.
