Onshape helps businesses modernize their product design process.

Simultaneous editing, built-in collaboration tools and real-time design reviews allow teams to explore multiple design iterations in parallel and instantly share product specs and design changes with partners.

Onshape requires no downloads, installs, or license codes and runs in a web browser on a Mac, PC, Chromebook or Linux computer. Frees your IT team from CAD and PDM maintenance, letting engineers spend more time designing and less time dealing with software issues.

Database-driven architecture eliminates the risk of unauthorized duplication, data breaches, or even accidental sharing. Strict role-based access control keeps your design data secure at all times.

Onshape is the only product development platform that includes real-time data management and up-to-the-minute analytics and reporting tools. Whenever any team member makes a design change, everyone else on the team instantly sees it. A comprehensive Edit History tracks who made what change and when, allowing you to revert to any prior state of the design. Share latest product designs with manufacturing, sales and marketing teams with a built-in simplified CAD viewer.

Onshape is the only product development platform that unites 3D CAD, data management & analytics.

What’s Included in a SaaS Product Development Platform?

Anywhere, Anytime CAD Access

Access your CAD models from any modern web browser or from iOS/Android devices. Onshape Mobile is not just a viewer, but is the power of bringing your entire CAD system with you wherever you go.

Secure Cloud Workspace

Reduce your IT overhead with no need for downloads, installs, license keys, or service packs. Everyone has the latest software version with regular updates automatically added every three weeks.

Real-Time Data Management

Maintain a single source of truth for your data, without the need for an external add-on PDM system or sending around files. Whenever anyone makes a design change, everyone on the team instantly sees it.

Comprehensive Edit History

Track who made what change and when, allowing you to instantly revert back to any prior state of the design. Think of it as your unlimited Undo.

Branching and Merging

Explore, compare, and combine alternative design elements in separate branches without impacting the core design. Encourages creative risks and more iterations, ultimately resulting in better designs.

Controlled Access to Your IP

Share your CAD data with only those you want to see it. Better protect your intellectual property by monitoring, changing, and revoking View, Comment and Editing permissions at any time.

Multi-Part Design Studio

Design multiple related parts together in one place. By defining common features and inter-part relationships in one workspace – instead of bouncing back and forth between files – you can ensure that the results of your design changes are predictable and robust.


Create variations of models with different sets of parameters to switch between them easily. Users are presented with a clean and straightforward menu offering configuration options, making it easy to find the permutation they need.

Standard Content

Fashion stacks of fasteners and capture fit, form, and function. In Onshape, each fastener has a built-in mate connector, making standard content smarter and making positioning in assemblies much easier.

Managed In-Context Design

Add in-context relationships between parts of an assembly without the risk of unpredictable updates. Your CAD models always update in a predictable, controlled manner against immutable historical snapshots of the assembly.

Simultaneous Sheet Metal Tools

Visualize errors immediately by seeing folded, flat, and table views as you design. When you edit one view, the other two are synchronized automatically using Onshape’s secure cloud architecture.

Custom Features

Create built-in, industry-specific CAD features through Onshape’s powerful programming language, FeatureScript. It’s like having a CAD platform specially customized for your business.

Onshape App Store

Add specialized engineering tools – such as simulation, rendering, or CAM – from multiple partners. Most offerings are Integrated Cloud Apps that work directly inside an Onshape Document.

One Environment

Access the App Store and custom features from within Onshape’s secure cloud workspace, without worrying about compatibility, license keys, or login credentials.
