SAN RAFAEL, Calif., June 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK), a world leader in 2D and 3D design and engineering software, will showcase its new 2010 product line for the aerospace industry at this year's International Paris Air Show from June 15-21 .
The company's premiere at the industry exhibition signals its intention to aggressively sell its Digital Prototyping software to the US$675 billion aerospace and defense market. Autodesk has been a trusted provider of engineering applications to aerospace suppliers for more than 25 years. Autodesk Inventor 2010 software and the complete Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping represent a dramatic opportunity for suppliers to deliver more creative and innovative work while saving time and resources in the design-to-manufacture process.
"Autodesk is uniquely positioned to fill the needs of aerospace suppliers by enabling global design and engineering teams to design, visualize and simulate their products and processes," said Andrew Anagnost, vice president of engineering, design and simulation for the Manufacturing Industry Group at Autodesk. "Our presence at the Paris Air Show is a natural extension of our commitment to helping global manufacturers of all sizes bring their products to market faster, at lower cost."
At the Paris Air Show, Autodesk will demonstrate its new aerospace industry software solutions for three key processes:
-- Interior design: Autodesk Alias Design and Autodesk Alias Surface software are the industry leaders for concept design and modeling, visualization and surfacing for aerospace interiors. Suppliers can strike the right balance between functional requirements and designing visually appealing aircraft interiors that differentiate them from the competition. -- Engineering and production: Inventor software enables engineers across different teams to simulate and evaluate material choices, design options and manufacturing processes with a single digital model, reducing the number of costly and time-consuming physical prototypes. By extending Digital Prototyping to the factory floor, the Autodesk Navisworks family of products helps engineers make informed decisions about manufacturing facilities, equipment and tooling to help reduce errors and shorten lead time. -- Repair and maintenance: Inventor software incorporates 3D product geometry from a variety of sources to develop tools and fixtures used in aerospace maintenance procedures. Tight interoperability between Inventor, AutoCAD Mechanical and AutoCAD software also provides an efficient way to create and update documentation for these tools and fixtures.
The Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping enables use of a single digital model across the Autodesk product line and also provides compatibility with legacy applications already in use by suppliers and their customers.
Autodesk in Aerospace
The Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping helps aerospace manufacturers and suppliers bring together design data from all phases of the product development process to develop a single digital model created in Inventor software. The single digital model simulates the complete product and gives engineers the ability to design, visualize and simulate their product with less reliance on costly physical prototypes - thereby helping to improve time-to-market and increase competitive advantage.
Autodesk, Inc., is a world leader in 2D and 3D design software for the manufacturing, building and construction, and media and entertainment markets. Since its introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk has developed the broadest portfolio of state-of-the-art Digital Prototyping solutions to help customers experience their ideas before they are real. Fortune 1000 companies rely on Autodesk for the tools to visualize, simulate and analyze real-world performance early in the design process to save time and money, enhance quality and foster innovation.
