I am looking for a few good men, or women, that are interested in an early access testing opportunity.. We have a partner looking for feedback.

  1. You have need to bring in STL or other mesh formats into Onshape
  2. You have access to said data
  3. You have time to test and give a partner feedback on said solution
  4. You are willing to participate in a private beta.

If you feel you meet all these requirements and wish to participate. Please send me an email.

[email protected]

Given that this is a private beta. I likely cannot say much about it here. So if you are indeed interested. Please send me an email.

    The Beta testing will be an ongoing thing until the product is officially released... if you are interested, send Joe an email. The requirement is that you are active with your testing and provide feedback. This isn't a request for people to simply try it, but rather for people who have a use/need to try it AND provide feedback on what works, what doesn't and what is missing.

    Our team uses 3D scanners to render both anatomical models and medical equipment we would like to modify. I am pushing Onshape heavily within our institution and have been using it as our main CAD tool for the last 6 months. Would this be an extension to Onshape? Could I join the beta?

    Thank you for your time!

    Yes Please!  I need to edit a simple stl.... I understand the limitations of processing more elaborate models.  The one I have is only 67kb.  Hope to hear from you! Thanks

    Chris make sure to go the the App Store and try InStep. this will allow you to bring in editable STLs into Onshape
