Autodesk launches comprehensive 3D CAD in the cloud

27 November 2012

Autodesk has previewed Fusion 360, claimed to be the world’s first comprehensive cloud-based 3D modelling offering, at an event in Las Vegas today (November 27).

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 supporting it offers any time, anywhere access, from virtually any mobile device or web browser and puts essential data at the centre of the design experience. It also supports an open design environment, allowing designers to incorporate and modify CAD data from virtually any source. 

The application exploits 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.

Autodesk Fusion 360 will be available on a term basis making it affordable to businesses of all sizes. It is aimed at professionals and small businesses seeking flexibility to scale their product design tools to fit changing project needs. It is expected to be generally available next year.
