Why we created the CAD to Cloud


About 20 Million designers and engineers worldwide use CAD software to create design data; however, the CAD ecosystem is much bigger and includes more than 200 Million users that consume and contribute to that data as a part of the production workflow. Those users come from various solution providers and professions: art and industrial designer, technical writers, packaging designer, render and simulation specialists, sales and marketing departments, cables and wire harness designer, prototype builders, mold designer, 3D printing, and machining shops, etc. 

Today, the most common way to exchange CAD files is through email or cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Drive. So, These methods are not adapted for 3D engineering data, require duplication of the existing information that leads to computability, slow the process and cause security issues. 

There are several reasons why direct access to the original data is denied:

  • There are not on the same IT infrastructure (different companies or locations)

  • They don’t use the same CAD product

  • Security and IP control

CAD to Cloud offers a one-click upload of SOLIDWORKS®CAD data directly to ONSHAPE®,a secure 3D cloud platform for straight forward  sharing and communication
