Onshape is the industry’s first pure Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product development platform that unites robust CAD with powerful data management, collaboration tools and real-time analytics. The cloud-native solution is a perfect fit for companies requiring the flexibility of remote design teams, enabling engineers to work together from anywhere, any time, and on any device.
Traditional CAD systems haven’t evolved from the same on-premise installations, expensive hardware, and file-based architectures they introduced 30 years ago. Barriers such as external Product Data Management (PDM) systems (that require checking-out files from a vault), painful upgrades, data loss, and software compatibility issues create unnecessary frustrations that reduce productivity and increase costs.
Unlike traditional file-based CAD systems, Onshape unites parametric modeling tools and design data management in a secure cloud workspace that is accessible on any computer (Windows, Mac, Linux), tablet or phone (iOS or Android), and never loses data. With no files to lose or corrupt, no license keys to manage, and no installed desktop software, Onshape helps engineering teams get out of the IT business so they can get back in the innovation business.
Simultaneous editing, built-in collaboration tools and real-time design reviews allow teams to explore multiple design iterations in parallel and instantly share product specs and design changes with partners.
Onshape requires no downloads, installs, or license codes and runs in a web browser on a Mac, PC, Chromebook or Linux computer. Frees your IT team from CAD and PDM maintenance, letting engineers spend more time designing and less time dealing with software issues.
Database-driven architecture eliminates the risk of unauthorized duplication, data breaches, or even accidental sharing. Strict role-based access control keeps your design data secure at all times.
Whenever any team member makes a design change, everyone else on the team instantly sees it. A comprehensive Edit History tracks who made what change and when, allowing you to revert to any prior state of the design. Share latest product designs with manufacturing, sales and marketing teams with a built-in simplified CAD viewer.
