At IMTS 2016, Company Brings Together Autodesk, Delcam, HSM, Netfabb,
Pan Computing and Magestic Systems for Complete Set of Additive and
Subtractive Manufacturing Solutions
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 13, 2016--
With the world of manufacturing undergoing major disruptions brought on
by new market forces and technologies, Autodesk
(NASDAQ:ADSK) unveiled its portfolio of solutions for additive and
subtractive manufacturing. The portfolio lets manufacturers take
advantage of technology disruptions and improve competitiveness by
creating higher quality products in less time with lower costs.
The new solution brings together industry-leading products historically
offered from Autodesk, Delcam, Netfabb, Pan Computing and Magestic
PartMaker (now included in FeatureCAM), PowerShape,
one complete set of hybrid manufacturing solutions.
“Autodesk has long been a leader and innovator in 3D design, engineering
and the technologies that expand the applications of industrial 3D
printing, but we appreciate that no product is really complete until
it’s realized through physical manufacture,” said Amar Hanspal, senior
vice president of products at Autodesk. “We’ve also become a leader in
technologies that expand the applications of industrial 3D printing.
Now, we’re truly integrating the design, make and use phases of product
development. This new set of solutions goes big on the ‘make’
component—equipping manufacturers with all the software they need to go
from digital design to real-world product.”
Unveiled at the International
Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS 2016), the portfolio spans
computer aided manufacturing (CAM), additive manufacturing, composites,
robotics fabrication, factory layout, inspection and modeling. It
enables customers to solve complex manufacturing challenges and
seamlessly connect design to machining.
Within the portfolio offerings are cloud-connected capabilities designed
to help users experience the benefits of a more cohesive manufacturing
workflow and invest more time in product development. Cloud-capabilities
give customers improved support for global manufacturing operations with
universal access to software and data, and the cloud also enables fast
and frequent software upgrades.
What’s in the Autodesk manufacturing portfolio?
Autodesk HSMWorks: A fully integrated CAM solution for SOLIDWORKS,
allowing users to get up to speed and become productive within minutes
using familiar tools and workflows.
Autodesk Inventor HSM: Helps CNC programmers, designers and engineers
rapidly produce machined parts designed in virtually any CAD system.
CAM Products: With offerings for a multitude of advanced
manufacturing applications, these new products combine the heritage of
industry leadership in CAM software from Delcam with Autodesk’s 3D
design and manufacturing prowess. Solutions include FeatureCAM for
automating CNC programming; PartMaker for precision part manufacturing
with Swiss-type lathes; PowerMill for programming the most complex
molds, dies and other components; PowerShape for preparing complex
models for manufacture; and PowerInspect for inspection in every
Autodesk Netfabb: All the software you need to reduce costs, increase
efficiency and improve part performance in additive manufacturing and
Fusion 360: The centerpiece of Autodesk’s cloud-based product
innovation platform, Fusion 360 combines CAD, CAM and CAE in a single
package. It allows users to take their designs all the way to
production with included 3D printing capabilities as well as HSM
powered toolpath technology for 2 through 5 axis milling machines,
turning centers and waterjets.
“Not only is the Netfabb bundle easy to use, it also does much of the
heavy lifting in preparing models for 3D printing,” said Dan Ko,
strategic initiatives lead at Shapeways. “The software streamlines the
process of fixing common 3D print file problems and if we didn’t have it
to automate a large portion of file preparation process, each build
would be substantially more time consuming and labor intensive.”
“This new integrated portfolio from Autodesk brings together technology
Autodesk has been growing and investing in across the full manufacturing
spectrum,” said Hanspal. “This combination of solutions makes modular
and scalable manufacturing solutions available to manufacturers of all
