Be Part of the Onshape User Community

Take Your Product Design Skills to the Next Level

Onshape User Groups provide a casual way to improve your design skills, challenge your assumptions, informally network with industry peers, learn best practices from innovative companies, enjoy some refreshments and socialize with new friends. User Groups are member-run and completely independent from Onshape, but do receive both educational and financial support. Some meetings may include an Onshape expert on the agenda, giving members the inside scoop on future developments and a chance to directly share their priorities.

While we work our way through the pandemic, all Onshape User Group meetings are currently being held online. This gives you the opportunity to attend multiple meetings hosted by our group leaders around the world.

"As our company grows, Onshape has made it so much easier for me to manage our different engineering groups and review their progress in real time."

Azizi Tucker
CTO, XING Mobility

"I haven’t used a file-based CAD system yet that hasn’t crashed on me, especially in the concept-generation stage. I’ve never lost work in Onshape and I never have to remember to hit the save button. At this point, it would be a struggle to return to our old CAD system."

MICHAEL BROMLEY
Lead Mechanical Engineer, Voxel Innovations

"Onshape behaves like a ‘Google Doc for CAD,’ which is very simple and easy to use for collaboration. We also like that there’s no IT overhead."

Mike White
CTO, Fusion Biotec

How do I find a group near me?

Onshape User Groups have formed in numerous cities around the world, and when the pandemic has passed, live meetings will generally be held quarterly at a variety of local venues. We are still forming groups during the current crisis, with meetings being held online until conditions improve. Scroll down to see the list of current Onshape User Groups and get in touch with your local Onshape User Group leader.

How can I start an Onshape User Group?

If you cannot find an existing Onshape User Group nearby and would like to start one, please email usergroups@onshape.com and let us know a little bit about why you'd like to lead a new chapter. Onshape will provide the necessary video technology until live meetings resume, and we will help with promotion. Now is a good time to get a group started and established while we look forward to meeting again in person.
