Innovation Starts with Onshape


Tatum Robotics is revolutionizing communication for the deafblind community by creating the first tactile sign language interpreter. The design team was hesitant about their previous CAD tool for security reasons.  When they sent a file to a partner, it would be gone and out of their reach. However, with Onshape, Tatum is now able to easily share a design with someone and withdraw access just as quickly, enabling quicker and safer design feedback from the community.



Based in Switzerland, Scewo revolutionized the wheelchair industry with the first and only electric stair climbing wheelchair, ‘BRO.’ Onshape provided relief for their IT teams, as they no longer required software downloads, installations and license codes. They could also access the platform on any web browser and device, including on Mac, PC, Chromebooks, or even Linux computers. In addition, Onshape’s modern user interface, ease of use, and integrated PDM enabled Scewo to iterate on their design collaboratively and bring their product to market faster.



MicroDynamics is the leading provider of high-precision quality control instruments for the Flexo Printing Industry. The team switched to Onshape because of the cloud-native architecture which allows for remote work on any device and the built-in PDM which saves them about 20 hours. Onshape’s advanced collaboration tools also foster effective communication during the design process. According to MicroDynamics, “the productivity increase is like adding another engineering resource to the team.”



Lumafield specializes in industrial CT scanners for visualizing and analyzing features on the inside and outside of parts and assemblies, closing the loop between design and manufacturing. The team faced hurdles with legacy desktop CAD software’s collaboration, version control, and license management. Onshape made onboarding new engineers quicker with the ability to easily send new account invitations when a teammate joins. In addition, the cloud-native platform helped the team with hybrid work.

Speed is a core value at Lumafield; we develop, build, and ship complex industrial hardware on aggressive timelines that are rarely seen in our field. At the same time, our customers depend on our machines to solve their most sensitive design and manufacturing challenges, so there's no room for error on our part. Onshape helps us work quickly by letting our engineering team collaborate in real time and provides a seamless platform for moving from design to production.

Hyphen Technologies created an automated makeline that optimizes food production. After switching to Onshape from SOLIDWORKS, the team has eliminated file disorganization, enabled easy experimentation through branch and merge, and fostered seamless collaboration among their teams. This enables a more agile development process, with quicker iterations to problem-solve the unique challenges of dispenser designs and ingredient permutations.

Onshape Product Features


Unlike other “cloud” CAD solutions that were adapted to fit in a cloud environment, Onshape was built for the cloud. It is stable and reliable, eliminating the time loss associated with CAD crashes - which studies show can be over 7 hours per week. Onshape is accessible through any web-enabled device or through the mobile app for iOS and Android devices.


Professional-Grade CAD

Onshape delivers 3D CAD online, supporting solid modeling, surfacing, sheet metal design, and more in your browser. Designing in Onshape is easy and intuitive. For example, assembly mate connectors can be built in far fewer steps than competitive solutions like SOLIDWORKS. During revision edits, there is also no risk of breaking. You can also create custom CAD features (or tools) using Onshape's FeatureScript.



Onshape's built-in Product Data Management (PDM) is a hassle-free way to centralize, store, search, and manage your data without the need for an expensive PDM system.  Designed using a database architecture (instead of files), Onshape’s unique approach to PDM increases visibility while ensuring traceability of every action taken during the design process.  This eliminates version control headaches while ensuring there's only one single-source of design truth without having to implement file check-in/check-out protocols.



Onshape Simulation is the easiest and fastest way to examine meaningful structural analysis results such as stress, displacement and natural frequencies, as you create and iterate in the Onshape design environment.  With simulation built into Onshape’s cloud-native architecture, you can build better quality products faster with mechanical feedback that stays in sync with your assembly throughout the product development process.



Computer-aided Manufacturing (CAM) Studio is used to generate, visualize, and simulate your manufacturing processes for 2.5 to 5-Axis simultaneous CNC machining operations. It is the industry's first cloud-native CAD, CAM, and PDM combination that helps users version CAM strategies alongside their models. CAM is currently available for early visibility customers.



Create professional dynamic images of your Onshape models with Render Studio. This capability delivers photorealistic rendering of CAD models on any supported web browser, without a high-end graphics processing unit (GPU) or dedicated workstation.
