Is Onshape as good as SolidWorks?

While Onshape is easier to obtain and set up, in terms of actual 3D modeling and sketching, there isn’t much difference between it and SOLIDWORKS. The real difference comes with Onshape’s cloud capability, as well as the collaboration benefits that come with it.

Is Onshape faster than SolidWorks?

In Solidworks most of the features are separated out into their own selectable options. Whereas in Onshape most features are a layer or two deep.

Is Onshape web based?

Perfect for Open Source Collaboration

Your design data is anywhere you are – it’s accessible from any computer via web browser or from any mobile device running iOS or Android.

What makes Onshape different?

Onshape stores its data not in files on a disk or in a PDM system vault, but in a database. And it doesn’t need to read and write all the data in a document every time it is opened or saved – we have no explicit “save” action at all. Instead, every change is recorded as an increment.
