Onshape is a cloud-based computer-aided design software for product development teams. It lets engineers and designers create, edit, collaborate on, and manage 3D models across different devices and locations. Onshape offers real-time data management, version control without overwriting files or losing progress, and instant sharing within the team or with external stakeholders like clients or suppliers. This software features parametric modeling tools that let users define designs' characteristics through parameters and constraints. Onshape’s interface makes it easy to assemble parts into assemblies dynamically in motion studies so designers can simulate how components will interact once manufactured.
