Onshape is a modern CAD system that lets engineers focus on doing their best work. Onshape founder and CEO Jon Hirschtick sits down with Alyssa Julya Smith in Los Angeles to talk about how he is revolutionizing the industry and creating streamline processes for engineers.

Computer-assisted design is a $8.7 billion industry that basically creates the blueprint for everything from snowmobiles to medical devices. Onshape has basically designed Google docs for CAD and has big plans, including two new announcements in 2018.

Hirschtick explains that unlike old CAD systems, Onshape unites modeling tools, design data, and workflow in a secure cloud workspace. It allows engineers to access their work on any device, never loses data, and eliminates design gridlock.
