Onshape offers unhindered cloud-based CAD access, thereby eliminating the challenges facing add-on PDM/PLS systems and traditional file-based CAD. Users no longer face the challenge of managing several versions of a design document and risking lost time from manufacturing errors. This frees them to improve their design quality instead of fixing administrative hassles. Data can be accessed quickly and work assigned to various team members with changes made and recorded in real-time.
Onshape enables users to create detailed drawings of assemblies and parts with several drawing features, including date values, dimensions, geometric tolerance, drawing sheets, entirely customizable drawing properties, and welding symbols. Supported file imports for imports and exports are DXF, DWG, and DWT.
Onshape allows the building of families of assemblies and parts independent tables for each configuration option, drastically reducing the number of rows and cells and allowing limitless product variations through configuration variables. Each configuration can have its change release (revision) history or part number.
With its inbuilt analytics, Onshape records each interaction and presents the data in tables and charts which are easy to read. Project status can be monitored easily with Release, Activity, Project, and User Dashboards. The central assignment of rights controls the users’ access to the reports
