If you’re a Workbench user, you probably already know that the CAD collaboration tool is a convenient PDM solution for teams working on complex projects or product designs.
Workbench is ideal for distributed teams working across multiple departments, locations or even timezones. It allows you to track and control any version of your project, the ability to restore previous files or even work directly inside your favorite CAD system via an add-on.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve added a new feature to Workbench that allows users in North America to order on-demand parts and models. We have partnered with Stratasys Direct Manufacturing to provide Workbench users with easy access to their in-depth expertise and manufacturing capabilities.

Here’s how to order parts from Stratasys Direct through Workbench:
Upload your file, review and manager via Workbench, then click the new “Make My Part” button in the upper right hand corner.
From there, you will need to create a Stratasys Direct Manufacturing account if you don’t already have one.
Then login and order the parts you need. Stratasys Direct’s quoting tool will handle the rest.
It’s as simple as that.
With the combined power of Workbench as a (free) collaborative tool, and the manufacturing expertise and experience of Stratasys Direct, the new “Make My Parts” feature can help you bring products to market faster than ever before!
