Onshape launches full-cloud 3D CAD system
Onshape is the latest full-cloud 3D CAD system that lets everyone on a design team work together using any web browser, phone, or tablet.
Breaking away from the traditional model of desktop-installed CAD, Onshape has data management and collaboration built in at its core.
For the first time, the CAD system and CAD data live in one place in the cloud, and are never copied anywhere. Everyone on a design team sees and works on the same master CAD data at all times, avoiding confusing checkouts, file copies, and overwriting each other’s work.
As a full-cloud product, Onshape also eliminates the hassles of installations, license codes and servers, service packs, and add-on PDM systems. Every Onshape user always works with the same version of Onshape – the latest version.
Companies worldwide use Onshape today to speed up the design of consumer electronics, mechanical machinery, medical devices, machine parts, industrial equipment, and many other products.
Onshape’s free plan also makes it a suitable CAD choice for students and educators to collaborate inside and outside the classroom.
Based in Cambridge, MA, Onshape is a new venture-backed company that includes key members of the original SolidWorks team plus elite engineers from the cloud, data security and mobile industries.
