Desktop platform icon This functionality is currently available only on Onshape's browser platform.

This Onshape Render Studio application, free for Enterprise (not EDU Enterprise) and Professional plan subscribers, allows the creation of photorealistic scenes from imported Part Studios or Assemblies. Use scenes to test model appearances and materials, lighting and camera setups, and environments. Export scenes as .jpg- or .png-formatted images to market rendered designs.

Once imported via the Document tab menu, scenes are created in the Render Studio Dashboard. Create as many Render Studio tabs as needed. Each tab contains a single dashboard, where scenes are saved, listed, and organized. From the dashboard, create new and open, update, or delete saved Render Studio scenes. Create as many Render Studio tabs as needed, and save as many scenes as needed in each dashboard. Each scene created is stored only in the dashboard where it is created.

ImportantCopy link

Simultaneous editing is not currently supported in Render Studio tabs. Accessing a Render Studio tab shows only your saved scenes. Other users' scenes are not visible to you. This is different from the behavior of other Onshape tabs, such as Part Studios and Assemblies, which do support simultaneous editing.

Editing the same Render Studio scene in multiple browser windows under the same user account is not recommended. The latest edit takes precedence and can overwrite edits to the scene in the alternate browser window(s).
