Autodesk® PRODUCT DESIGN & MANUFACTURING COLLECTION is an Autodesk solution intended for design studios and construction offices creating digital prototypes of machines and devices. The software package includes a universal toolkit for 3D mechanical design, CAD drawing, design presentations, product simulation, routed systems design, cable and harness runs, and injection molds.
The PRODUCT DESIGN & MANUFACTURING COLLECTION includes i.a: AutoCAD, AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD Mechanical, Autodesk Inventor Professional, Inventor Nastran, HSM Ultimate, Navisworks Manage, 3ds Max and many clouds services such as Fusion 360, ReCap 360 Pro or AutoCAD 360 Pro.
Autodesk AutoCAD connects and streamlines your design processes like never before. Included in all Autodesk design packages, AutoCAD software accelerates the design process from concept to execution with highly efficient 2D and 3D design documentation tools. It connects design concepts with the real world thanks to interactive maps, geolocation tools and new possibilities for capturing surroundings. The new Design Feed tool brings project collaboration closer to social networks, enabling stakeholders to become more involved.
Autodesk AutoCAD Architecture, created especially for architects, makes work on design and documentation even more effective. The software is available in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection and Product Design Collection packages. Thanks to extremely efficient tools for creating documentation of 2D and 3D projects and schedules, it speeds up the design process from concept to execution. It connects design concepts with the real world thanks to interactive maps, geolocation tools and new possibilities for capturing surroundings.
AutoCAD Electrical automates the most common tasks when designing electrical installations and devices. The AutoCAD Electrical package has all the functionality of AutoCAD and additionally includes libraries of electrical symbols, reports with bills of materials and libraries of PLC I / O drivers, which enables faster and easier creation of projects
Autodesk® AutoCAD Mechanical is AutoCAD designed to accelerate the 2D mechanical design process. The program includes all AutoCAD functions enriched with libraries of standard elements and tools that automate common design tasks.
Autodesk Factory Design Utilities is a solution for designing and optimizing production facilities plans. It enables the design and presentation of optimal plans thanks to the creation of a digital plant model. The solution extends the capabilities of AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor with specialized, shared plan creation procedures and an object library for manufacturing facilities.
Autodesk Inventor Professional offers a universal set of tools for 3D prototyping machines and devices and creating CAD workshop drawings. It enables the generation of engineering and production documentation based on digital prototypes. Enriched with visualization tools, it allows you to quickly create photorealistic renderings and animations.
Autodesk Inventor Nastran is Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software. It uses the Nastran computational kernel for calculations. The program offers linear and nonlinear analyzes, dynamics and heat transfer. It is directly integrated with CAD software, including Autodesk Inventor, and SolidWorks.
Inventor Nesting is an advanced solution that automates the time-consuming process of spreading sheet metal cuts on a flat sheet. Nesting automatically searches for the most optimal plate layout, which will enable the best process efficiency. In addition, it allows the user to influence the key parameters of the layout in such a way that the layout is even better and corresponds to the current needs of the user.
Autodesk Inventor Nesting is part of the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection and acts as an overlay for Inventor Professional thanks to the integration of these two environments making any changes to the model automatically introduces changes to Nesting, making the work quick and easy.
The program allows us to export the finished sheet layout to a 3D model and DXF format based on which the cutting paths can be generated on the machine. It is worth mentioning that the PD&M Collection also includes an advanced CAM module, thanks to which, by using the collection, we can deal with sheet metal elements in a comprehensive manner, from design to production.
Autodesk Inventor HSM offers a manufacturing toolkit for CNC machines. It is an excellent CAM solution directly integrated with Autodesk Inventor. It includes machining from 2.5 to 5 axes. The HSM kernel enables fast and precise control of machining on lathes, milling machines and lathe-milling machines.
Navisworks tools allow you to coordinate, simulate the construction and analyze an entire project for an integrated project. Autodesk Navisworks Manage allows for more accurate inspection results with advanced coordination, 5D analysis and simulation tools.
Autodesk 3ds Max – is one of the most respected and extensive graphics programs on the market. Dedicated to the needs of visual effects creators, generating three-dimensional models and animations in the form of photorealistic rendering. It is used by the film industry, game production and by designers in the following industries:
– architectural and construction,
3ds Max is available from all industry collections as well as an individual Autodesk product.
Autodesk Vault Basic is an intuitive integrated engineering tool for managing documentation, its life cycle, product life cycle and data exchange with ERP systems.
Depending on the version, Autodesk Vault allows you to manage documents / PDM / (Basic version) to product lifecycle management / PLM / (Professional version). Vault helps design, engineering, and manufacturing departments collaborate and share digital document information using a range of tools and connecting design teams in different locations. Advanced tools allow you to track engineering change orders, manage bills of materials (BOM) and integrate with ERP systems.
AUTOCAD 360 PRO APP FOR MOBILE DEVICES
The AutoCAD 360 Pro application is now available by subscription. The app lets you take AutoCAD anywhere:
Autodesk Fusion 360 is a cloud-based product design and development platform combining 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE tools. It provides tools for industrial design, mechanical design, computational simulation and machining in one package. The platform enables quick and easy implementation of design ideas and ideas in an integrated environment – from concept to production.
With ReCap 360, you can share and download actual measurements using laser scans and create professional 3D clouds and meshes from high-resolution photos.
By using Render in Autodesk A360, you can create attractive, near-photorealistic visualizations thanks to near-infinite processing power on the Autodesk server.
The advantage of this solution is to create renderings with very advanced settings without having expensive equipment that will be able to perform such rendering. The second undoubted advantage is the fact that we cannot use the computer during rendering, because all the computing power is devoted to rendering, while in the case of rendering in Autodesk A360, we can continue to work, and the rendering is performed outside our computer.
