Manufacturing organizations are supported or limited by the tools they use to design products. Whether you’re designing single parts or complicated end-use products you need solutions that optimize product development processes from beginning to end.

Depending on the size of your organization, whether or not you have IT support can be a major factor in selecting a solution. Especially in today’s dispersed global workforce, relying on single in-office licenses no longer makes sense. Onshape is the cloud-based CAD platform you’re looking for to provide the tools you need with zero IT footprint.

Why You Should Use Onshape as Your SaaS CAD

Onshape is an all-in-one product development platform that brings together the benefits of CAD, data management, and collaboration into one secure interface. It modernizes design processes by providing clear paths for optimization and real-time analytics for instant insight into how projects are progressing.

Unified Cloud-Based CAD Solution

Onshape unifies all key stakeholders into a single workspace to ensure everyone is on the same page throughout the development process. The Onshape platform combines:

  • CAD Capabilities: Onshape includes parametric modeling tools that have been modernized to meet today’s manufacturing needs. Its parametric modeling 2.0 capabilities include tools for multi-part design, configurations, standard context, managed in-context design, simultaneous sheet metal tools, and custom features.
  • Data Management: Combining CAD and product data management (PDM) capabilities into a single tool eliminates design gridlock. You don’t have to worry if someone is using the “right file” – everyone has access to the same information, always. Onshape maintains data by using its PDM to keep information in a database instead of file formats, provide a shared cloud workspace, make it easy to work in parallel on projects, keep everything together, and remove additional IT overhead.
  • Collaboration Tools: Old CAD platforms require outside tools like email or drives to share data between teams. Onshape eliminates that by providing an easy way to quickly grant edit, comment, or view access to CAD models and instantly collaborate with customers, vendors, or other team members.
  • Security: Some organizations fear that their valuable data can get into the wrong hands with SaaS CAD solutions – but Onshape has you covered. The platform includes role-based access controls, comprehensive audit logs, and 2-factor authentication. This ensures your data is protected and gives you complete oversight into who is accessing it.
  • Analytics and Reporting: Onshape’s data analytics solutions make it possible for engineering organizations to analyze and optimize their internal development processes.
