Onshape Free

Onshape offers free cloud-native, professional-grade CAD tools for non-professional designers

Onshape Free is a fully featured CAD, data management and collaboration platform available to the hobbyist and maker communities free of charge for non-commercial use.

As a cloud-native, completely portable and device-agnostic solution, Onshape is accessible from any computer, tablet or phone (iOS or Android) through a web browser or mobile app. Modeling in a secure cloud workspace, users never lose their designs due to data corruption or CAD crashes. 

Onshape is perfect for open-source projects, making it easier than ever for your contributors to instantly share designs and collaborate from anywhere in the world without having to download or install any software.

Evaluating Onshape for Work or School?

Onshape Free is ideal for personal projects, but does not include the release management or photo rendering features found in our paid versions. All Documents created in Onshape Free are also publicly accessible online.

If you are an engineer or designer who needs to keep your intellectual property confidential or if you would like to compare Onshape to your company’s current product development platform, please request a free trial of Onshape Professional to work with a member of our technical support team.

If you are a student or educator, please sign up for our free Onshape Education plan.
