What are the ways teams can collaborate in Onshape?
Since Onshape data is full-cloud CAD, there is no need to create copies of files or check files in and out of a vault when collaborating with others. In Onshape, teams can access Documents simultaneously. Colleagues can work on the same parts, assemblies, and drawings at the same time. Access is controlled by the owner of the Document, and each user sees visual indicators when others are working within the same Document.
If desired, team members can choose to create separate “branches” of a design and work on new design improvements individually. Since Onshape stores these variations within one Document, colleagues can graphically compare and merge the branches, saving rework by combining the best ideas.
Finally, Onshape allows users to view each other's screens while working together in a Document. This real-time “Follow Mode” improves communication during design reviews and helps add clarity when making design changes.
