“To be best-in-class is not just about moving from 2D to 3D, but rather to push ahead to digital prototyping to answer questions about your product before you start to build it.”
Autodesk has come a long way since its founding 25 years ago as a pioneer in the world of computer-aided design (CAD). Its flagship product, AutoCAD® software, has become synonymous with CAD and is a fixture in design shops worldwide.
Today, more than 9 million professionals globally use Autodesk products to save time and money, design more sustainably, and bring ideas to life. By putting powerful desktop technology within the reach of mainstream manufacturers, the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, based on Autodesk® Inventor® software, is changing the way professionals think about the design process, enabling them to create complete workflows based around a single digital model.
Further demonstrating Autodesk’s leadership are developments such as the Inventor Fusion Technology Preview. Inventor Fusion technology showcases intuitive direct manipulation capabilities for unrivaled ease of use, provides direct modeling for rapid design changes without limitations, and unites direct and parametric workflows within a single digital model.
“The latest Autodesk manufacturing solutions redefine the product design process by supporting and natively connecting all of the disciplines involved in product development, from industrial design to mechanical and electrical engineering and manufacturing.”
