As Seen In Automotive Design & Production

Research shows that long-fiber reinforced composites combine higher levels of stiffness, strength and toughness (or durability) in a single material compared to short-fiber composites.

Simulating Long-Fiber Composites
Long carbon fiber-reinforced thermoplastics may get increased use thanks to simulation capabilities.

Autodesk Fusion Production software lets manufacturers digitize their production by combining production planning, job tracking and machine monitoring into a single tool.

The Network and the Sensor
The smart-factory world of digital manufacturing is coming, and manufacturing-technology developers are eager to help you be ready.  

IMTS 2016 Preview
About the Event The 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) marks the 31st edition of the event which will take place September 12-17, 2016, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Optimizing Automotive Lightweighting
Lightweighting to meet increasing fuel efficiency and stricter emission requirements involves heavyweight software tools to optimize the choice of the materials and part designs.

CAM: Getting Better and Going Cloud
Acquisitions haven’t stopped two CAM vendors from advancing their software. In fact, the acquisitions have also helped put CAM into the cloud.

Factory Layouts Modified More Quickly
New, inexpensive software stitches laser-scanned point clouds together using scanned objects as the registration targets.

Processors for Superior Performance in Automotive Apps
In the race to deploy more electronics-based systems, faster is better. And the processors from NVIDIA are awfully quick.

Autodesk Puts PLM in the Cloud
This PLM product has all the advantages of next-generation, cloud-based technology. It’s also quick, easy, inexpensive.

CAD: Historic, Simple & In The Cloud
Changes are happening across the spectrum of computer-aided design (CAD) products. Here are three to show improved ease of use, modeling performance, and collaboration capabilities are still the major drivers for revising CAD software.

Looking @ Autodesk 2011
Robert Kross, senior vp, Manufacturing Industry Group, Autodesk, the developer of design software for engineering and entertainment, raised an interesting point: Why should a CAD package have less awesome images than a $50 game?

CAD For The Small, Medium, and Large
Price, breadth of features, and product lifecycle management are what mostly separate CAD systems in corporate eyes.

Simulation Makes Vehicles Real
Advances in simulation software include integration with other CAx systems, simulations of more domains, and stunning virtual reality.

Autodesk Introduces 2010
Yes, 2010. The software company has rolled out a raft of new tools for the design, analysis, and simulation of products. Virtual prototype first, then move on to the real thing.

A Couple of Cool Tools for Designers
Although plenty of attention gets paid to many of the more mainstream CAD-related offerings, here are a couple that may pass under your radar. Yet if you're looking for fast collaborative development, both may be gear that you can't afford to miss.

Moving from 2D to 3D for about the price of 2D
Buy Autodesk Inventor Series, the solids modeler, and get Autodesk's 2D packages basically for free.

Tracking the MCAD Enhancements
A few hundred enhancements to a single software application? For some Applications, that number suggests a questionable software release. In mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD), that number is an embarrassment of riches—for users.
