CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With the world of manufacturing undergoing major disruptions brought on by new market forces and technologies, Autodesk (NASDAQ:ADSK) unveiled its portfolio of solutions for additive and subtractive manufacturing. The portfolio lets manufacturers take advantage of technology disruptions and improve competitiveness by creating higher quality products in less time with lower costs.
The new solution brings together industry-leading products historically offered from Autodesk, Delcam, Netfabb, Pan Computing and Magestic Systems—including HSMWorks, Inventor HSM, Fusion 360, FeatureCAM, PowerMill, PartMaker (now included in FeatureCAM), PowerShape, PowerInspect and Netfabb—into one complete set of hybrid manufacturing solutions.
“Autodesk has long been a leader and innovator in 3D design, engineering and the technologies that expand the applications of industrial 3D printing, but we appreciate that no product is really complete until it’s realized through physical manufacture,” said Amar Hanspal, senior vice president of products at Autodesk. “We’ve also become a leader in technologies that expand the applications of industrial 3D printing. Now, we’re truly integrating the design, make and use phases of product development. This new set of solutions goes big on the ‘make’ component—equipping manufacturers with all the software they need to go from digital design to real-world product.”
Unveiled at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS 2016), the portfolio spans computer aided manufacturing (CAM), additive manufacturing, composites, robotics fabrication, factory layout, inspection and modeling. It enables customers to solve complex manufacturing challenges and seamlessly connect design to machining.
Within the portfolio offerings are cloud-connected capabilities designed to help users experience the benefits of a more cohesive manufacturing workflow and invest more time in product development. Cloud-capabilities give customers improved support for global manufacturing operations with universal access to software and data, and the cloud also enables fast and frequent software upgrades.
What’s in the Autodesk manufacturing portfolio?
“Not only is the Netfabb bundle easy to use, it also does much of the heavy lifting in preparing models for 3D printing,” said Dan Ko, strategic initiatives lead at Shapeways. “The software streamlines the process of fixing common 3D print file problems and if we didn’t have it to automate a large portion of file preparation process, each build would be substantially more time consuming and labor intensive.”
“This new integrated portfolio from Autodesk brings together technology Autodesk has been growing and investing in across the full manufacturing spectrum,” said Hanspal. “This combination of solutions makes modular and scalable manufacturing solutions available to manufacturers of all sizes.”
