Things never stand still here at Autodesk, so here’s some more news. Some brand new..some not so much and this is not all.
Autodesk Nastran 2015 & Nastran In-CAD 2015
While I was on holiday in august, Autodesk announced the release of the Autodesk Nastran portfolio.
This software was based upon the acquisition of software rights from NEI Nastran and although the announcement was kept quiet until the In-CAD products were ready, a few months back anyone with Simulation Mechanical would have noticed they had access to a subscription release which gave them the ability to use a Nastran solver.
In addition to the Nastran solver, the Autodesk Nastran In-CAD software is now available for Autodesk Inventor and Solidworks. This new toolset doesn't replace the already available In-CAD functionality but instead is available as an additional purchase for those organisations needing more complex analysis capabilities within their existing CAD environment.
Rather than repeat what has already been announced Al Dean at Develop3D has written a comprehensive article so please see the link below.
Last week Autodesk released an additional Autodesk 360 service.
For customers utilising Autodesk 360 as part of their subscription benefit they should now notice that the file storage and sharing platform has been renamed to A360 Drive.
A360 Drive still offers that same level of storage, security and viewing capabilities as before HOWEVER anyone logging in should now notice that they have the opportunity to try A360.
A360 is a new platform giving users and organisations the ability to start working in a project based cloud environment. Functionality includes the ability to create projects with unique user access, the ability to collaborate with unlimited external users, project calendars, important hyperlinks, user polls, document storage areas and native viewing support for over 100 different file formats.
