Actronika’s actuators, Unitouch haptic processing units and software are integrated into other companies’ hardware. To streamline communication between their design team and their external partners, Actronika chose PTC’s Onshape, the only cloud‑native product development platform that combines CAD, data management, real-time collaboration tools and business analytics.
“Our challenge is to haptize existing products and to do so we need tight collaboration with our partners,” says Pijewski. “Onshape lets us instantly share our CAD models with our partners so they can review them in real time. We just send them a link and they can view, turn and zoom in on any detail. Getting feedback is much quicker.”
“With our previous CAD system, our partners were usually working on a different platform and we both wasted a lot of time importing and exporting files, which sometimes didn’t work. It was really inefficient,” he adds.
Cloud-native Onshape’s Sharing feature allows you to securely and instantly collaborate with a colleague, vendor, customer or partner by granting them editing, commenting or view-only access rights to a CAD model. Equally valuable is the ability to instantly withdraw outside access to your designs when a project is over, reducing the risk of unintentionally leaking your intellectual property.
