Today we are going to introduce Onshape, the first full cloud-based professional 3D CAD system. Onshape has built a 3D professional CAD system and placed it on the cloud instead of tying it to a PC. Why is this so revolutionary, and what are the advantages to this?
First, and probably the biggest, you don’t have to install the software. Being fully cloud-based, all you have to do is log in via any web browser and you have full access to the latest 3D CAD software release. In addition, updates and patches happen automatically, behind the scenes. This means no IT support required and no software administration headaches.
Another advantage is that CAD along with your “working files” are accessible from virtually any device since everything resides in the cloud. Whether you log in via your PC, tablet, or phone, you have full access and can make the needed changes right there and then. No need to wait until you get back to your office PC to make simple changes!
Lastly, full cloud-based CAD runs on and stores data on multiple redundant servers. If one has an issue, the other server kicks in and takes over, so that your Onshape session is uninterrupted. This means you no longer have to waste time recovering from a crash and restarting your software, and better yet, you don’t have to worry about backing up your files since everything is continuously being saved and stored on the cloud.
As you can see, Onshape is truly revolutionary. Being truly cloud-based, there are no software administration headaches, you can log in from any device and you don’t have to worry about software crashes or losing work. Onshape offers you full access to CAD, anytime, from anywhere! Please be sure to sign up for our 2 Minute Tuesday video series to receive tips and tricks like this one in video form every week.
