How to Export a STEP in Onshape

Onshape is our recommended platform for designing laser cut and sheet metal parts to be manufactured via our laser cutting service. Exporting your parts from Onshape as A STEP file is fast and easy, only taking a few seconds. After your files are exported you can upload them to our instant quoting platform to receive instant pricing for your laser cut or sheet metal parts.

Exporting Parts

  1. Since Fabworks accepts both flat and bent parts in step form there is no need to make a flat pattern for your sheet metal parts. Additionally there is NO need to adjust your k-factor before export! Refer to our Sheet Metal Bending Service Guidelines for more info on what we adjust automatically!
  2. Right click anywhere on your part, then click “Export”
