There is no need to download or install software. You and your students can simply create an account and begin using Onshape from anywhere in minutes, all without involving IT. Onshape works on ALL of your devices, including mobile.


Built for Collaboration

Work together in the same document, without checking out files or causing version conflicts. Students and teachers can collaborate together in real time, making it easy to work together. Onshape keeps a complete history of changes so students will never accidentally lose work or overwrite each other's data.

Data in the Cloud

Onshape manages all of your data in the cloud, so it’s always available. There is a complete history and built-in version control so you will never lose work and can always roll back if you make a mistake. Never worry about saving again and never lose your work because of a crash.

Onshape is just the best! The ability for my students (and myself for that matter) to log into any device and simply start modeling invites CAD into any situation; CAD is shifted from a specialized tool to something as second nature as an engineering notebook.

We appreciate Onshape’s easy collaboration, not having to worry about document management, not having to worry about having our high-powered computers crash or shut off. We’re happy we switched.
