We think of Onshape as the next evolutionary step in the CAD market from SolidWorks, Inventor and Creo.
The leading investment firm backing Onshape also invested in GitHub, Facebook, Twitter, StackOverflow and Slack.
Onshape is redefining the rules for the future of the 3D CAD market. By starting from scratch with CAD infrastructure Onshape have completely eliminated all of the traditional CAD problems. No more file management pains. Always up to date and accessible on any device from anywhere. No more distractions. Just Design.
"Onshape is the only company in the world 100% focused on cloud and mobile CAD, offering the first professional 3D CAD system that lets everyone on a design team work together using any web browser, phone, or tablet."
"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."
"Onshape is the first full-cloud 3D CAD system. It runs in a web browser (Chrome, Safari, Firefox) on any computer (Windows, Mac, Linux, Chromebook). There is no software to download, install, or license. Furthermore, every user in the world works on the same version of Onshape - the latest."
Onshape have redesigned the underlying infrastructure of modern day 3D CAD software to solve all the key challenges present in traditional file based CAD. The challenges of working from home, managing design contractors and controlling design approvals in multi-site international teams is now solved with Onshape.
"With Onshape Professional you can define work flows approvals and revision schemes graphically within Onshape. Specify release management rules and access conditions with no maintenance and zero IT installs. Onshape Release Management tools are designed to deliver compliance and improved data control across multiple industry sectors."
"Onshape delivers workstation-level performance on entry-level computers, phones and tablets. In many cases, it is faster than desktop CAD. Desktop CAD uses 4 or 8 cores in the desktop computer. Onshape uses thousands of cores in the Onshape Cloud, and can add more in real time to ensure the kind of performance our customers need."
