MCAD—Onshape Announces Onshape Enterprise

Onshape adds powerful and industry-first features to Onshape Enterprise. Enterprise integrations and real-time, unprecedented visibility top of the agenda in this offering.


Cambridge, USA-based Onshape says that its new Onshape Enterprise is the “complete design platform for sophisticated product teams under pressure to work fast without losing control.”

Here’s what you want to know about the new Enterprise edition of Onshape.

Onshape Enterprise

Universal Access

Onshape Enterprise enables access to CAD data even if they are not a part of the engineering or company team. This means anyone within the organization—for those who don’t have a direct role with the CAD data, for example—and folks like partners, suppliers, and vendors who may need occasional access with varying levels of permissions.

01 – Onshape Enterprise tracks all users’ sign-in locations and activities, giving managers a real-time snapshot of a company’s CAD usage.

Will Tiller, an engineering manager at Dixie Iron Works said in a statement, “With Onshape Enterprise, anyone on our production floor can look at the 3D model, they can look at drawings, they can access the machine code and always know it’s the most up-to-date information.”

Secure Control

Onshape Enterprise adds security features for its users, facilitating their ability to protect valuable intellectual property by configuring roles and permission schemes that enable instant user provisioning and de-provisioning with incredible precision.

You can dig deep into comprehensive audit logs to discover who did what and when and from where.

Unprecedented Visibility

Onshape Enterprise enables executives and managers to monitor all aspects of design activity—in real time. This is an industry first that no other manufacturing CAD company has provided prior.

02 – Onshape Enterprise lets companies make informed, data-driven business decisions from anywhere on any device.

Using project dashboards, you can instantly catch up with your team, use real-time activity feeds, time series visualizations and contributor leaderboards.

Enterprise Integration

Onshape Enterprise supports enterprise-grade integrations. Companies can connect Onshape to their PLM, ERP, or other systems of record. And companies can use “single sign-on” to simplify and secure their employee login process.

03 – Onshape Enterprise’s Release Activity dashboard gives an overview of pending, rejected, and released Documents.
