glTF

glTF (derivative short form of GL Transmission Format) is a file format and extension for 3D scenes and models using the JSON standard. It is an API-neutral runtime asset delivery format developed by the Khronos Group 3D Formats Working Group. It was initially intended to be an efficient, interoperable format with minimum file size and runtime processing by apps.

Being called ‘JPEG of 3D’, GLTF is indeed a star of 3D model formats. Standard for many 3D applications and game engines, it is especially prominent as a common publishing format for 3D content tools and as the format of choice for web apps.

Onshape Logo

Onshape is a CAD software system, delivered via internet. It is focused on mechanical CAD and is used for product and machinery design in many industries, such as electronics, machinery, medical devices, 3D printing, machine parts and industrial equipment.

It makes use of cloud computing, with computer-intensive processing and rendering performed on Internet-based servers. Users are able to interact with the system via a web browser or the iOS and Android apps.
