Cloud-native Onshape Drawings have unique URLs, so sharing them with suppliers, manufactures and other stakeholders is as easy as sending a link or creating a mobile QR code.
Sharing CAD Drawings in Onshape is made secure by the support for fine grained editing permissions, controls for group and project based access, and a full traceable history of design changes and document access.
Create high quality CAD drawing views of sketches, surfaces, parts and assemblies either on a single sheet or across multiple sheets. Create 2D, 3D, exploded and rendered drawings with standard and custom views. Create industry standard visualizations of valuable manufacturing information such as geometric dimensions and tolerances, surface finishes and fastener locations with tables, callouts, balloons and more.
Onshape’s Cloud-native architecture links assemblies with their drawings, allowing you to go from viewing 2D cross sections to editing parts in 3D with 1-Click.
Changes made to your design are automatically synced and reflected in any parts, BOM tables or linked information contained in your drawing.
You can query drawings and their associated parts, anywhere, at any time and on any device creating digital experiences for your stakeholders to better understand your product designs in both 2D and 3D.
Never email a PDF again. Onshape’s built-in PDM allows you to search all of your drawings using part name, release status, version and when you share you can trust that you and your manufacturing partners are in sync on the same version.
Catch design issues early by utilizing modern mark-up which can be associatively linked to parts, assemblies and mate connections along with communication tools such as comments, notifications and task assignments.
CAD drawings are the bridge between the digital 3D models of designers and the physical products built and assembled by manufacturers.

Onshape Documents are shared using secure unique URLs, via email notification or encapsulation into a QR code. When sharing a Document with export permissions to a supplier they can choose the correct export file type to download for compatibility with their system.
A drafting standard includes a set of detailing document properties that you can use with multiple CAD drawings such as formats for dimensions. Onshape’s CAD drawings can be annotated to comply with ANSI and ISO drawing standards in addition to support for custom templates.
Onshape’s CAD drawing features use industry standards, plus the importing of custom CAD drawing templates that allow for customization for your company including stylized tables, fonts and logos. When first creating a CAD drawing you can choose to select an existing template or make a new custom one. You can also import your existing templates from SOLIDWORKS for a seamless transition from other CAD solutions.
To import CAD drawings into Onshape from SOLIDWORKS, first create and import DWG or DXF files. If you want to edit the imported CAD drawing, you can use the integrated app "ARES Kudo" from the Onshape app store:
