The Xometry Instant Pricing app for Onshape offers:
- Instant quoting. With the AI-driven Xometry Instant Quoting Engine, engineers and designers can instantly price parts in one integrated CAD workspace and make real-time design decisions.
- Instant in-app design-for-manufacturing (DFM) feedback.
- Custom-part ordering, from 3D printing and CNC machining to sheet-metal fabrication, urethane casting and injection molding. Designers can also configure materials, finishes and other specifications to generate lead times.
“Across the manufacturing ecosystem, Xometry is committed to giving engineers, designers and entrepreneurs the ability to tap into global manufacturing capacity to bring their visionary projects to life,” says Randy Altschuler, CEO. “With our Instant Quoting app for Onshape, we’re making it even easier to harness the full power of our Xometry marketplace in one seamless environment.”
“The Xometry app puts 5,000 industrial manufacturers and DFM just a few clicks away from Onshape users,” says Jon Hirschtick, executive vice president and general manager of Onshape. “This enables instant feedback, and the Xometry supplier network is flexible enough to handle orders of significant size. This is an exciting addition to the Onshape app store.”
The Xometry app in the Onshape app store reflects the ‘Xometry Everywhere’ strategy of extending the reach of Xometry’s AI-driven quoting engine across popular third-party sites, offering full functionality wherever the intelligent quoting module lives.
Onshape is the first and only product development platform that provides professional-grade CAD capabilities with integrated data management, enabling more agile design processes at lower costs.
