Onshape CAM Workflow

For those teams using Onshape for CAD, what is you preferred CAM option for CNC routing/milling? Do you use one of the in-cloud options from the Onshape App Store (like the MecSoft option) or download to MasterCAM, Solidworks, Fusion360, etc?

We download to Fusion360 (which is compatible w the large amount of people w macs who we have on the team) - it’s worked well for over a year us & we haven’t had any issues so far (:

Most people I have talked to use fusion360 which I have heard is really good from a lot of people and similar to inventor hsm which I can confirm is very good most of the time.

Our hope for this year is to use MasterCAM with the built in downloader for all our parts. We wanted to do the same last year, but switched to Onshape too late to get familiar enough with MasterCAM. For the past season, we used Cambam for 2d parts (router) and Solidworks/HSM for CNC mill parts.
