What an exciting time for CAD!

2015 has already been an exciting time for CAD and other nerdy related things. Autodesk has officially released AutoCAD and Inventor 2016 which are as usual, chocked full of new features. Inventor 2016 has a new text editor and updated presentation environments which were two of the areas of Inventor almost untouched since Inventor was first released. 2016 also allows you to work more efficiently with other CAD file formats, always a much needed area for improvement with the rapidly changing landscape of CAD software. Check out the full description of what’s new in Inventor on the Design & Motion blog.

In other news, GrabCAD rocked the market again by announcing their flagship Workbench was now free for all. This certainly garnered quite a bit of excitement from anyone looking for an easy way to hit the ground running on a simple way to collaborate.

Develop3D magazine wrapped up another Develop3D live with John Hirschtick (OnShape) and Carl Bass (Fusion360) going head to head discussing their competing CAD in the cloud platforms.

Speaking of CAD in the cloud… OnShape officially launched its beta and Fusion360 is adding new features at feverish pace.

So much that’s new and changing, so little time to write about all of it. What excites you? Find me on Twitter @cadtoolbox and let me know.
