Autodesk India has unveiled the latest releases of its 2D and 3D design and engineering software for manufacturers. Significant enhancements and newly packaged suites will help manufacturers build better products, ranging from mobile phones to bulldozers, in less time, says the company.

The new 2010 product line-up for manufacturers includes Autodesk Inventor family of products, AutoCAD Mechanical, AutoCAD Electrical, Autodesk Alias family of products, Autodesk Mouldflow, Autodesk Navisworks, Autodesk Showcase, Autodesk 3ds Max Design and Autodesk Vault software—industry-leading applications that constitute the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping.

The 2010 software releases introduce an even greater range of design, visualisation and simulation capabilities, along with tighter interoperability than ever before with both Autodesk software applications and other CAD tools.

"We aim to put powerful 2D and 3D software within the reach of mainstream manufacturers' positions companies of all sizes—not just large enterprises—to compete on a global scale," said Andrew Anagnost, vice president, Manufacturing Solutions, Autodesk Inc. "With our 2010 product line, customers can achieve greater collaboration than ever before between industrial design, engineering, manufacturing and marketing teams that are all responsible for bringing quality products to market."

Autodesk Digital Prototyping 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 reliance on physical prototypes, which helps reduce cost and accelerate time to market in highly competitive industries.

Autodesk Inventor 2010
As the foundation for Digital Prototyping, Autodesk Inventor software helps produce an accurate 3D model that validates the form, fit and function of a design before it is built. The Autodesk Inventor 2010 product line introduces new usability and productivity enhancements for 2D product documentation, 3D product design, extended simulation capabilities, a strong focus on plastic part creation and new data management and exchange capabilities.

New features in the Autodesk Inventor 2010 product line include:

•  Plastic part design and tooling: The Autodesk Inventor product line simplifies the design of high-quality moulded part models with automated capabilities for designing injection moulds for plastic parts. Incorporating Autodesk Mouldflow technology, Inventor enables users to design complex plastic parts and quickly create and validate their corresponding mould design, helping to reduce errors and improve mould performance—resulting in higher product quality and faster time to market.

•  Ability to simulate product performance: The Autodesk Inventor 2010 product line provides improved support for motion simulation and static and modal finite element analysis at both the part and assembly level.

•  Design productivity: Continuing to improve usability and productivity, Inventor offers a new user interface that combines an intuitive 3D design environment for creating parts and assemblies with tools that enable engineers to focus on a design's function to drive the automatic creation of intelligent components such as plastic parts, steel frames, and rotating machinery.
