About Onshape

Onshape is a modern CAD system that eliminates design gridlock: the constant waiting, distractions, and hassles that prevent engineers from doing their best work. Onshape unites advanced modeling tools and design data management in a secure cloud workspace that is accessible on any device and never loses data. With no files to lose or corrupt, no license keys to manage, and no installed desktop software, Onshape helps engineering teams get out of the IT business so they can get back in the innovation business.

Professional engineers at thousands of companies rely on Onshape to modernize and streamline their engineering process. Onshape users in 170+ countries have logged over 3 million hours modeling advanced robotics, biomedical devices, industrial machinery, and myriad other products. With 1 of 8 sessions occurring on mobile devices, Onshape is the world’s first anywhere, anytime CAD system.

Founded in 2012, Onshape has raised $169 million from Andreessen Horowitz, NEA, North Bridge, and other leading investors. The Onshape leadership team includes the original creators of SOLIDWORKS® and other proven leaders in cloud infrastructure, data security, and mobile.

How do you position yourself against your competitors?

Onshape is the only 3D CAD platform that runs entirely in the cloud - the CAD system and CAD data live together in one place and are entirely database driven.

Traditional 3D CAD tools are desktop installed - they require downloading, installing, upgrading and troubleshooting. They also rely on files to store data. This makes sharing data with team members both difficult and insecure. Some CAD systems are "semi-cloud", storing files on a cloud hosting service, but these still require a fat client download and installation.

With Onshape, new users can be up and running in minutes by simply signing in to their account through a web browser or mobile device. Sharing data with others is seamless with full control over their access permissions. Since your data never leaves our servers, it is the most secure method of design collaboration.
