Trusted by thousands of engineers to modernize the product design process, Onshape is the only Cloud-based product development platform that unites CAD, data management, collaboration tools and real-time analytics.
MakerBot for Onshape adds even more value for Onshape users with a seamless experience for sending their CAD designs to MakerBot Cloud, MakerBot’s web-based slicer.
The application reduces the time it takes to export a CAD design to an STL and loading it into a slicer for 3D printing. Moreover, users will have the ability to select individual parts in their assembly to send to MakerBot Cloud.
Until now, users were required to go through the extra steps of exporting designs from Onshape to their desktop, then importing them into MakerBot Print. The new MakerBot Cloud application for Onshape allows users to send their active part design directly to the virtual build plate in MakerBot Cloud and start their print – creating a seamless, fully Cloud-based manufacturing solution.
“MakerBot for Onshape is another step for MakerBot to provide the most accessible 3D printing process for professional engineers and designers,” said MakerBot VP of Engineering Dave Veiz. “This integration with Onshape is our latest step towards partnering with leading CAD tool providers to provide more engineers with a seamless transition from CAD to part.”
MakerBot for Onshape is a part of Onshape’s effort to create a truly connected user experience through to creating functional parts. Combined with the speed and precision of MakerBot METHOD printers, users will have new capabilities to quickly print manufacturing tools, end-use parts, and functional prototypes not available previously.
