In addition to Configurator360, Autodesk have also launched
a new cloud based collaboration service called Autodesk Mockup 360.
What is it?
Mockup 360 is a simple cloud based real time collaboration and design mockup tool. The benefit of which is to provide an environment where companies can collaborate in real time with their supply chain or customers. Mockup 360 will allow users to aggregate data from various sources and formats*, create markups, edit positions, run clash checks and collaborate real time with 3rd parties without the need to install more complex desktop solutions.
How does it work?
See the video here to see what it looks like. Click here for the overview video.
What can you do with it?
- Aggregate CAD data of practically any size and type in a shared 3D environment.
- Easily add collaborators to your mockups simply using their e-mail address.
- Use positioning tools to build your overall design and check for interferences with a powerful clash engine.
Can I try it now?
