Have you ever wanted to learn CAD, but lacked the resources to do so? Are you a design professional that is fed up with the inefficiencies of your current CAD system? If so, this course is for you. In this course, Introduction to Onshape, you'll obtain a free Onshape account and learn how to design in the cloud. First, you'll obtain the know-how to design parts and assemblies quicker than ever. Next, you'll make a real design and professional drawings of it. Finally, you'll learn how to use Onshape to collaborate with other designers in real time using Onshape's cloud-based CAD system. When you're finished with this course, you'll not only have the knowledge and skills to use Onshape anywhere at any time, but also will be able to optimize your designs in the cloud, speed up your design process, and share your work in real time. Software required: Onshape.

Hi everyone, my name is Justin Frazier and welcome to my course Introduction to OnShape.

I am a Design Engineer at LectraHeat LTD and a maker of things.

In this course we will learn how to use this ground-breaking software and discover why CAD so much better when used in the cloud. We’ll make our free OnShape account and dive into major topics including:

  • Part Design
  • Assemblies
  • Professional Drawings
  • Cloud-based Collaboration
By the end of this course, you’ll know how to model and draw complex parts, assemblies, and anything you can think of. But it gets better: you’ll be able to share your design with anyone who has a computer, cell phone or tablet, and even work with them in the cloud as you wish.

Whether you’re inexperienced in CAD or a user of another program, OnShape is the program for you. Before beginning the course you should be familiar with basic 3D CAD and its uses.

From here, you’ll be able to use your free account to further develop your design skills and even use your models for 3D printing, simulation, manufacturing, and more.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn 3D CAD using OnShape with the [Introduction to OnShape] course, at Pluralsight.
