"As our company grows, Onshape has made it so much easier for me to manage our different engineering groups and review their progress in real time."
Sara LucarottiHead of DesignBellaSeno

"Onshape behaves like a ‘Google Doc for CAD,’ which is very simple and easy to use for collaboration. We also like that there’s no IT overhead."
MICHAEL BROMLEYLead Mechanical EngineerVoxel Innovations
"I haven’t used a file-based CAD system yet that hasn’t crashed on me, especially in the concept-generation stage. I’ve never lost work in Onshape and I never have to remember to hit the save button. At this point, it would be a struggle to return to our old CAD system."
