New OpenBOM App Extension for Onshape was released just a few weeks ago. If you missed our earlier articles, please check it out here – OpenBOM App Extension for Onshape is available. I’m thrilled to share that we are getting tons of feedback from our customers about the new Onshape application. 

Check our press release and read how OpenBOM aligned with Onshape architecture and what our customers have to say about their experience – OpenBOM Brings Advanced SaaS PLM to Onshape Users with Major Release.

“The new OpenBOM App Extension shows the power of Onshape SaaS and full cloud architecture by enabling contextual integration of the OpenBOM cloud services with Onshape,” says Onshape co-founder and PTC SaaS president Jon Hirschtick. “It puts OpenBOM right where you want it, just one click away in the context of your Onshape assembly and parts. OpenBOM complements Onshape and empowers customers by streamlining the design process, performing production planning and purchasing activity in a modern and efficient way.”

Michael White is President and founder of DIGITALCARBON, a firm that relies on OpenBOM and Onshape to design and model complex composting systems says, “The killer features are cloud collaboration, Catalog Items as a single source of truth, and live CAD integration. OpenBOM is Google sheets for manufacturing.”

“The OpenBOM / Onshape suite of tools works extremely well for us. OpenBOM creates both Catalog inventories and Multi-Level BOMs directly from our Onshape models”. Says Byron van Gool IMBU Mechanical Engineering Manager. “We rely on the ability of OpenBOM to integrate tightly with our Onshape design structure and create a Multi-Level BOM. We then connect our OpenBOM item master catalog to that BOM to enable reuse of our extensive items catalog”.

Next week, we do plan to host a webinar together with Onshape about OpenBOM SaaS PLM. You will learn details about OpenBOM multi-tenant SaaS applications, how it works, what does it do and, most importantly, how is it different from other PLM cloud-hosted applications.
