Capture design intent and create robust inter-part relationships by designing parts together using a top-down approach in a Part Studio. Parts are defined from the same parametric history tree using shared layout sketches, shared features or the geometry of surrounding parts to ensure that updates are robust and predictable. Each part is treated independently with its own material and properties and can be freely used in multiple different assemblies and drawings.
Rich Feature Set
Each of Onshape's parametric design features perform multiple operations in one, reducing the number of features required, icon clutter and user training. Choose whether features create solid, surface or sheet metal geometry, add or remove material and which parts they should be applied to. Preview the effect of feature changes to the entire regenerated model.
Import CAD data in neutral and native file formats, such as STEP, Parasolid, JT, SOLIDWORKS, CATIA, NX, Creo and Inventor. Reuse legacy CAD data and make modifications when necessary using Onshape's powerful direct editing tools.
Automate complex, rules-based or repetitive design tasks using custom features. Written in FeatureScript, the same programming language used by the Onshape development team, custom features look and behave the same as the standard built-in features. Write your own custom features and share them with your team or add features created by others to your toolbar.
