MATHEMATICS, SIMULATION AND MODELLING
6 December 2012
Autodesk, a leading provider of cloud-based design and engineering software, has previewed Fusion 360, the world’s first comprehensive cloud-based 3D modeling offering, at Autodesk University.
Autodesk Fusion 360 allows design and engineering professionals to more easily create 3D product designs and collaborate with others in the cloud. The cloud technology behind Fusion 360 provides anytime, anywhere access, from virtually any mobile device or web browser and puts essential data at the center of the design experience. It also supports an open design environment, allowing designers to readily incorporate and modify CAD data from virtually any source.
'Data is at the center of the product design process and the cloud frees that data to be accessible anywhere, anytime,' said Robert 'Buzz' Kross, senior vice president of design, lifecycle and simulation at Autodesk. 'Autodesk Fusion 360 will give designers and engineers the first powerful, easy-to-use and complete cloud-based design solution.'
Autodesk Fusion 360 leverages the Autodesk 360 cloud-based platform and adds to the company’s cloud portfolio for manufacturers, which includes Autodesk PLM 360, a cloud-based product lifecycle management offering and Autodesk Simulation 360, a comprehensive set of simulation tools delivered securely in the cloud.
