Designing for Digital Fabrication in Onshape

Digital fabrication tools are computer-controlled machines that manufacture things based on a digital design and are widely used in industrial manufacturing. As the technology has matured and costs have decreased, these machines have become great educational tools by enabling students to bring their ideas to life. Three of the most common types of digital fabrication methods in education are 3D printing, laser cutting, and CNC machining and Onshape can be used with all of them.

Learn from experts how to utilize all the features of Onshape in your digital fabrication workflows. Fully online CAD makes it easier to bring designs to life quickly and efficiently even when working with teams of students. No need to print off engineering drawings or worry if you have the latest design, just access your model on a mobile device or tablet while manufacturing. Also, get a sneak peek at advanced ways to connect Onshape to machines.
