Onshape Speeds Up Design Processes with New Premium Edition of 3D CAD Software Platform

Modern CAD platform Onshape, formed by several former SOLIDWORKS employees, is based entirely in the cloud, making it accessible by computer, tablet, or phone. An i.materialise plugin in 2016 made the platform even more accessible, and Onshape introduced two new cloud-integrated apps this past February, following those up with its Design Data Management 2.0 in March. Today, Onshape has rolled out […]

A Four-Step Guide for a Successful 3D Project

A Four-Step Guide for a Successful 3D Project

My first 3D printed project was a little bit disappointing. My new innovation looked rough and weak and the 3D model was not functioning well. Obviously, in 2006 we had fewer options for a 3D printed prototype, but the path was similar to what we have today. Therefore, my first experience was very similar to what I saw over the years with […]
