Autodesk 2012: Product Webcast

If you missed the Autodesk 2012 product media event webcast today, here’s a recap. Autodesk will be bundling their software into broader suites then they have before. In the past, you could have always expected Autodesk to include AutoCAD with Inventor as the Autodesk Inventor Suite which was later renamed the AutoCAD Inventor Suite.

In the 2012 release, this will be called the “Autodesk Design Suite 2012” available in three levels, standard, premium and ultimate. All of which will ship on a USB memory stick. The Product Design Suite will consist of the following levels:

Product Design Suite Standard ⎯ Foundational product design tools for conceptual design, intuitive 3D surface and solid modeling, drafting and presentations, featuring AutoCAD Mechanical with Inventor Fusion, Autodesk Showcase, Autodesk SketchBook Designer, Autodesk Vault and Autodesk Mudbox software.

Product Design Suite Premium ⎯ Optimized Digital Prototyping and visualization tools for maximum performance that features Standard edition tools along with Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk 3ds Max Design software.

Product Design Suite Ultimate ⎯ Advanced surfacing, simulation and tooling for unbeatable design quality, featuring the same tools as the Premium edition along with Autodesk Inventor Professional and Autodesk Alias Design software.

GrabCAD – What a Picnic!

Have I mentioned how much I like GrabCAD? Check out my picnic table assembly: http://grabcad.com/cadfiles/octagon-picnic-table. This was modeled about 8 years ago and built twice since then. It still looks good after all these years.

Where’s the first place you go for Inventor support?

We all have our favorite place we go to get help with the latest Inventor feature or that tricky modeling problem.
