Technology Preview Now Available to Download from Autodesk Labs
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., June 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autodesk (Nasdaq:
ADSK) is offering a free* download of its Inventor Fusion Technology Preview
on Autodesk Labs starting June 25.
Autodesk Inventor Fusion is new Digital Prototyping technology that unites
the power and control of parametric, history-based modeling with the speed and
ease of use of direct, history-free modeling, enabling users to choose the
modeling approach that is right for the task at hand. The technology preview
is the first step in delivering the full vision of Inventor Fusion to
"Our manufacturing customers have told us that direct modeling is opening
up new opportunities to accelerate product development. However, they've also
told us that they don't see the need for the power and control of
history-based parametric modeling going away," said Robert "Buzz" Kross,
senior vice president for the Manufacturing Industry Group at Autodesk. "We're
developing Inventor Fusion technology as part of a larger effort to combine
the best of both disciplines to further improve the product design process."
Inventor Fusion Technology Preview is ideal for companies that need to
make rapid, history-free design changes to a model through direct manipulation
but also have many years worth of feature- and history-based data and design
intent that they need to access, use and maintain.
The June 2009 preview is the first step toward Autodesk's goal of
providing seamless bidirectional parametric and direct workflows to users by
allowing them to adopt the modeling approach that best fits their needs in a
single application. The company is planning a second technology preview this
fall that will enable users to perform direct modeling for fast changes and
then see their changes updated in the model's parametric feature history,
maintaining crucial design intent. For more information or to download the
