Design and Engineering Software Leader Demonstrates 2010 Aerospace
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., June 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autodesk, Inc.
(Nasdaq: ADSK), a world leader in 2D and 3D design and engineering software,
will showcase its new 2010 product line for the aerospace industry at this
year's International Paris Air Show from June 15-21 (Le Bourget, Paris, June
15-21 2009, Hall 2 - Row E - Stand 14).
The company's premiere at the industry exhibition signals its intention to
aggressively sell its Digital Prototyping software to the US$675 billion
aerospace and defense market. Autodesk has been a trusted provider of
engineering applications to aerospace suppliers for more than 25 years.
Autodesk Inventor 2010 software and the complete Autodesk solution for Digital
Prototyping represent a dramatic opportunity for suppliers to deliver more
creative and innovative work while saving time and resources in the
"Autodesk is uniquely positioned to fill the needs of aerospace suppliers
by enabling global design and engineering teams to design, visualize and
simulate their products and processes," said Andrew Anagnost, vice president
of engineering, design and simulation for the Manufacturing Industry Group at
Autodesk. "Our presence at the Paris Air Show is a natural extension of our
commitment to helping global manufacturers of all sizes bring their products
to market faster, at lower cost."
At the Paris Air Show, Autodesk will demonstrate its new aerospace
industry software solutions for three key processes:
-- Interior design: Autodesk Alias Design and Autodesk Alias Surface
software are the industry leaders for concept design and modeling,
visualization and surfacing for aerospace interiors. Suppliers can
strike the right balance between functional requirements and designing
visually appealing aircraft interiors that differentiate them from the
-- Engineering and production: Inventor software enables engineers across
different teams to simulate and evaluate material choices, design
options and manufacturing processes with a single digital model,
reducing the number of costly and time-consuming physical prototypes.
By extending Digital Prototyping to the factory floor, the Autodesk
Navisworks family of products helps engineers make informed decisions
about manufacturing facilities, equipment and tooling to help reduce
errors and shorten lead time.
-- Repair and maintenance: Inventor software incorporates 3D product
geometry from a variety of sources to develop tools and fixtures used
in aerospace maintenance procedures. Tight interoperability between
Inventor, AutoCAD Mechanical and AutoCAD software also provides an
efficient way to create and update documentation for these tools and
The Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping enables use of a single
digital model across the Autodesk product line and also provides compatibility
with legacy applications already in use by suppliers and their customers.
Autodesk in Aerospace
The Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping helps aerospace
manufacturers and suppliers bring together design data from all phases of the
product development process to develop a single digital model created in
Inventor software. The single digital model simulates the complete product and
gives engineers the ability to design, visualize and simulate their product
with less reliance on costly physical prototypes - thereby helping to improve
time-to-market and increase competitive advantage.
