The new collaboration will see PTC provide free licenses of Onshape, its cloud-native product development platform, to MassRobotics and its resident startups.
With Onshape, MassRobotics’ community of future-minded startups can leverage the latest in cloud product design software for robotics development.
Fady Saad, co-founder and VP of strategic partnerships at MassRobotics, says: “Our team at MassRobotics is very excited to collaborate with PTC and the amazing Onshape team to utilize the innovative capabilities of Onshape to better scale the next generation of successful robotics startups.”
With simultaneous collaboration and integrated data management, Onshape enables engineers to innovate without concern of design stalls, crashes or losses.
Robotic startups can use Onshape to accelerate their design processes and increase speed to market, giving them a competitive edge in today’s fast-paced economy.
With Onshape, multiple MassRobotics engineers can work on their complex assemblies at the same time, allowing an entire team to instantly see edits or changes, no matter who makes them or when.
The robotics market continues to grow rapidly, with spending predicted to exceed $240 billion by 2023, according to research company IDC.
Onshape is used for design and development by commercial robotics companies, reinforcing the value that it can bring to the MassRobotics community.
David Katzman, SVP of general operations at Onshape, says: “The robotics industry is becoming more vital than ever as companies look to automation and faster processes to address supply chain disruptions and labor shortages.
“We are thrilled to provide Onshape to the innovative startups at MassRobotics as they help revolutionize the market.”
