What's New in the Onshape App Store (May 2022)
First things first, the video:
NEW APP - XOMETRYXometry has been around since 2013 and is best known for providing on-demand manufacturing. Translation? This means they can connect you with over 5,000 high quality manufacturing shops, each bringing unique skills, equipment, and capabilities.
Their app was launched in March and has already enabled countless Onshape users to get price, lead time estimates, and DFM feedback instantly! The DFM feedback – or “Design for Manufacturability" – allows you to make more cost effective parts. Xometry offers plenty of manufacturing processes like 3D printing, CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication, injection molding, urethane casting, and more.
After you’ve optimized the part for manufacturability, you can order nearly any quantity, from a single prototype, to a production run. And from their website, you’ll find many, MANY more options related to certification, inspection, tolerance, marking, and so-on-and-so-forth.
Put their app to use for your next project and take advantage of the 10% discount before it expires.
NEWS - ONSCALE SOLVE
OnScale was recently acquired by Ansys which has understandably caused a little concern for our users who have incorporated it into their design workflow. Concern is understandable – acquisitions cause uncertainty – but if you read the press release, you’ll see OnScale and their technology is not going away. Instead, Ansys will bring their incredible depth, industry-leading solvers, and what we’re expecting to see is a significant acceleration of OnScale's development. Exciting news!
That's all for this update. We always have more apps in the pipeline, so keep your eyes peeled for the next installment!
SimSolid was acquired by Altair a while back, but SimScale has not been acquired...at least to my knowledge and a cursory search this morning.
BTW when I checked the Applications section, the button had updated to Revoke (rather than Grant). So that works.
When I set it back to Private, it reverted to the way screenshot looks
Account Settings > Applications at the top of the page there's a switch for "Limit application access per document through the Share dialog". It was switched ON. Turned it off and it works as it should
Posting here in case others experience this.
