CAM for onshape

 I there any plans for CAM integration into Onshape?

I currently use HSM and saw they have a free version for inventor and solidworks, maybe Onshape can get on that list?

    I would like to see it a cloud app and not just a desktop version. 2D cutting (waterjet/plasma/laser)

    @frank_martinez By free I think this means that if you buy the desktop version then they'll give you a free connector to you CAD application...

    VisualCAMc was the Onshape app-store CAM of choice.  Have you had the opportunity to look at that?

    VisualCAMc looks good, but it is pretty pricey.  I'm toying about with Kiri:Moto which seems a bit basic, but it might get the job done.  Currently I am just exporting everything to Fusion 360 and using it's CAM function, which is pretty nice.

    That the C.A.D design workbench is linked with the C.A.M manufacturing workbench in the same software package. It is a strong argument for #TRADITIONALCADSUCKS not to end up being scrolled. :'(

    Let's not forget that we design to manufacture.
