MIT professors Wojciech Matusik and Justin Solomon are using Onshape to launch a new course on CAD for additive manufacturing this summer aimed at professionals seeking to speed up and modernize the product design process at their companies.
Your desktop installed CAD technology is old. Really old. The professional tools of 3D CAD have not changed much since the 1990s. Traditional desktop-installed CAD systems are powerful workhorses, but they still make us want to bang our heads against the screen. Sometimes it’s hard to convey the benefits of full-cloud CAD in a blog post, video or demo. So we created this infographic to help visualize the big benefits.
Like most things in life, your job is all about time. In an ideal world, you would spend the vast majority of your time creating cool product designs – doing what you were hired to do.
Are copies of your proprietary designs on multiple computers in multiple locations – with partners, manufacturers, vendors and suppliers? Do you have an inadvertent leakage problem without even knowing it?
Onshape was born to eliminate the headaches of desktop-installed CAD. Last month, we shared the top pains of hundreds of professional CAD users sick of having to jump over software hurdles while doing their jobs. In order of annoyance, the six most common complaints are:
Have you ever been forced to buy something you don’t want or need? It happens all the time in the CAD world. There are plenty of traditional CAD customers out there who pay for annual subscriptions but deliberately skip years of upgrades, the primary “benefit” for these maintenance fees.
