onshape 3d cadOnshape, the leading professional 3D CAD platform for Agile Product Design, has introduced a self-guided online Learning Center for experienced engineers and designers to speed up their transition from traditional desktop-installed CAD to full-cloud CAD. Access to the Onshape Learning Center is free for all annual Professional Plan subscribers. The new curricula offerings, or Learning Pathways, are broken down into short introductory courses with practice exercises that CAD professionals can complete at their own pace and also revisit later. The Learning Center was created as an alternative onboarding option to Onshape’s popular live interactive Overview Training, which is comprised of four daily two-hour online sessions with an expert Onshape instructor.

“Even though Onshape has a very quick learning curve for anyone with a 3D parametric CAD background, we’re finding that giving customers a crash course in how full-cloud CAD differs from installed file-based CAD gets them up and running faster versus them trying to learn it by themselves,” says David Katzman, Director of Onshape Customer Success. “The Learning Center is the ideal place to make sure your design team is production ready.” “People have different learning styles. The online courses will appeal to those who want more structured time to practice and who require more flexibility with their schedules. And the live training will still be available for those who prefer to interact with Onshape instructors,” he adds. Read More
