Autodesk reports that Autodesk Developer Network (ADN) partners are now shipping products and applications compatible with Autodesk Inventor 2011 3D mechanical design and simulation software. ADN partners provide tailored best-in-class applications and services for manufacturing customers' specific design software needs, from mould-making to data management, analysis and more.
Jim Quanci, the director of the Autodesk Developer Network, states: "ADN partners are an important part of Autodesk's success and we are very committed to providing them with the support they need, as well as access to millions of potential customers and sales partners around the world to ensure that they grow their business as they help our joint customers gain a competitive edge. Our ADN partners developing companion products for Autodesk Inventor 2011 provide manufacturing customers worldwide with customisable solutions that allow them to maximise their digital prototyping productivity and efficiency."
Autodesk says that digital prototyping with Autodesk Inventor software gives manufacturers the ability to digitally design, visualise and simulate how a product will work under 'real world' conditions before it is built. Digital prototyping reduces the reliance on physical prototypes, which helps reduce cost and speed time to market in highly competitive industries.
