New digital prototyping technology
Autodesk has unveiled its plans for Autodesk Inventor Fusion Technology - new digital prototyping technology that unites the power and control of parametric, history-based modelling with the ease of use and productivity advantages of direct, history-free modelling.
"Just as manufacturers need both 3D and 2D design tools, we believe manufacturers need the full power of both parametric, history-based modelling and direct modelling," said Andrew Anagnost, vice president of CAD/CAE for Autodesk Manufacturing Solutions. "Customers shouldn't have to make a choice. Inventor Fusion Technology is a unique approach that enables the coexistence of both these modelling approaches within a single digital model."
Inventor Fusion Technology delivers bidirectional parametric and direct workflows. This provides a powerful solution for companies that need to make rapid changes to a design 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. This advancement enables users to adopt the modelling approach that is most appropriate to the task at hand.
Using Inventor Fusion Technology, designers and engineers can explore what-if scenarios and make rapid design changes without the traditional limitations.
