This release brings the power of OpenBOM to the Onshape engineering community via the recent release of the Onshape application extension mechanism.

"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."

OpenBOM for Onshape users are reporting significant improvements in efficiency with the recent release of the Application Extension.

"The entire experience of creating, maintaining and planning production BIll of Materials in Onshape has been completely redesigned and improved", says OpenBOM CEO Co-founder Oleg Shilovitsky.

The powerful one-click BOM leads users down a much improved user experience of creating and maintaining BOM.

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."

OpenBOM customers like the Onshape app extension as it enables the OpenBOM bi-dierectional integration in the context of the assembly with images, part numbers, description and everything the user needs to convey a complete BOM of what needs to be built.

Netherlands based IMBU monitors and analyzes equipment in the most remote places on the planet.

"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".
