Cloud Native CAD

Unlike file-based CAD, which relies on fragile file references and slow check-in/check-out procedures, Onshape uses the full power of cloud architecture to transcend these limitations. Cloud-native CAD provides a centralized repository of design data, eliminating the problems of lost data and the need for users to manage their own files. Onshape is accessible on any web browser, allowing users to access, manage and share their design data securely from anywhere in the world on any web-connected device.

Built-in PDM

Onshape's built-in Product Data Management (PDM) includes a set of powerful tools for managing and controlling design data within a 3D CAD environment. Onshape eliminates files entirely, removing the most frustrating bottlenecks associated with traditional CAD and PDM systems. Teams can edit the same design concurrently with real-time updates – there is no need to check-in, check-out or lock files. With Onshape, it is easy to store and track metadata associated with parts and assemblies, enabling users to find and reuse existing designs more efficiently, saving valuable time and money.
