Onshape is a free, browser based 3D design tool especially suited for teamwork and more complicated 3D printing.

"Installation"/Sign In

Only an internet browser and WebGL are required to use Onshape. Simply visit [[2]] to see if your system supports it (it probably does).

Registering for an account is free and simple.

Preparing a Model for 3D Printing

  • align your model(s) if necessary, this may be more difficult later on
  • download the model as an STL file (Partstudio → Export → stl)
  • slice, e.g. in Cura
