Quick Answer: 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.

How is Onshape different?

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.
