Companies' strategic partnership designed to reshape how manufacturers go from 3D product models to finished parts, according to companies.

Onshape, a cloud product development platform, and Sandvik, a developer of applied manufacturing technologies, have forged a strategic partnership designed to simplify the way component manufacturers go from 3D CAD models to finished parts. The partnership integrates Onshape's advanced cloud CAD tools with Sandvik's reimagined take on CNC machine programming.

Sandvik's Prism CNC application enables component manufacturers to move from part design to part programming in the cloud—without manually moving or exporting CAD files between systems and formats. With a click of a button, Onshape users can connect the two solutions to start moving their 3D designs into Prism CNC for programming and G-code generation.

“Onshape is committed to not only provide best-in-class product development tools, but also is devoted to improving our customers' design and manufacturing processes,” says David Katzman, Onshape VP of Sales and Customer Success. 

“Prism CNC marks the beginning of the end of checking out CAD files manually before you go into production planning,” he adds. “By connecting our solutions behind the scenes, we're making it a lot easier for product development teams to go from design to first cut faster. We look forward to collaborating with Sandvik on future innovations.”

The integration is live now and is available to all customers of Prism CNC and Onshape.

“This greatly reduces the risk of human error and removes the complexity of keeping track of CAD file versions as you move from part design to production planning,” says Hugo Nordell, managing director, Growth Ventures and vice president at Sandvik Applied Manufacturing Technologies.

“Customers are able to significantly cut the lead times between design and planning for simple parts that make up the bulk of production,” he adds.
