Proto Labs Brings Seamless Quoting to Autodesk Fusion 360

Proto Labs’ online quoting for rapid manufacturing services to be integrated into Fusion 360 design application.

MAPLE PLAIN, Minn. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 25, 2015 — Leading custom prototyping and low-volume parts manufacturer, Proto Labs, Inc. (NYSE: PRLB), has teamed up with Autodesk to provide easy access to Proto Labs’ online quoting system directly within Autodesk’s Fusion 360. This software integration will go live with a late-July release of the Fusion 360 application update.

“This is the first step in what we expect to be a successful combination of our tech-driven manufacturing services and Autodesk’s advanced Fusion 360 CAD software,” says Proto Labs’ VP and GM of the Americas, Rob Bodor. “We want to give product designers and engineers increasingly easy access to pricing and part analysis so they can quickly manufacture parts to test and iterate design during product development.”

By clicking the Proto Labs logo within Fusion 360, users will be able to get an interactive quote with manufacturability analysis, for injection molding or CNC machining, within a few hours. The analysis highlights potential manufacturability issues allowing design modifications to be made early before any actual production begins.

In addition to molding and machining, plans are underway to implement similar quoting functionality for pricing on Proto Labs’ third flagship service: additive manufacturing (3D printing). “We will continue to enhance our in-program quoting in Fusion 360 over the next year to bring even more capabilities to users,” Bodor says.
