First things first, the video:
Xometry has been around since 2013 and is best known for providing on-demand manufacturing. Translation? This means they can connect you with over 5,000 high-quality manufacturing shops, each bringing unique skills, equipment, and capabilities.
Their app was launched in March and has already enabled countless Onshape users to get price, lead time estimates, and DFM feedback instantly! The DFM feedback – or “Design for Manufacturability – allows you to make more cost-effective parts. Xometry offers plenty of manufacturing processes like 3D printing, CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication, injection molding, urethane casting, and more.
After you’ve optimized the part for manufacturability, you can order nearly any quantity, from a single prototype to a production run. And from their website, you’ll find many more options related to certification, inspection, tolerance, marking, and so-on-and-so-forth.
Put their app to use for your next project, and take advantage of the 10% discount before it expires!
OnScale was recently acquired by Ansys, which has understandably caused a little concern for our users who have incorporated it into their design workflow.
Concern is understandable, acquisitions cause uncertainty, but if you read the press release, you’ll see OnScale and their technology will not go away. Instead, Ansys will bring their incredible depth, industry-leading solver, and what we’re expecting to see is a significant acceleration of OnScales development.
More to Come
That's all for this update. We always have more apps in the pipeline, so keep your eyes peeled for the next installment!
But before you go, representatives from our partner apps Phi, CADSharp and OnScale joined the Innovator’s Insider podcast to discuss how these integrations can expand Onshape’s power. Watch it now on Youtube.
