Upgrades Design, Visualization and Simulation Capabilities for Manufacturers
Autodesk, a provider of 2D and 3D design software, has unveiled the new 2010 product lineup for manufacturers.
According to the company, the new 2010 product lineup for manufacturers includes Autodesk Inventor family of products, AutoCAD Mechanical, AutoCAD Electrical, Autodesk Alias family of products, Autodesk Moldflow, Autodesk Navisworks, Autodesk Showcase, Autodesk 3ds Max Design and Autodesk Vault software applications that constitute the Autodesk solution for digital prototyping.
Autodesk digital prototyping software gives manufacturers the ability to digitally design, visualize and simulate how a product will work under real-world conditions before it is built. Digital prototyping reduces reliance on physical prototypes, which helps reduce cost and accelerate time to market in highly competitive industries, the company noted.
Robert Kross, senior vice president for manufacturing industry group at Autodesk, said: Putting powerful 2D and 3D software within the reach of mainstream manufacturers positions companies of all sizes, not just large enterprises, to compete on a global scale. With our 2010 product line, customers can achieve greater collaboration than ever before between industrial design, engineering, manufacturing and marketing teams that are all responsible for bringing quality products to market.
