Autodesk is taking a stab at addressing design requirements around industry workflows with a new family of suites that package up a range of Autodesk design, visualization and simulation technologies.
The first of the design suites address visual, plant and factory design, and the platforms have been architected to provide strong interoperability between the Autodesk products. Initially, Autodesk released:
Autodesk Factory Design Suite for machine and equipment builders, system integrators and manufacturers designing and simulating layouts of machine lines and manufacturing facilities. This suite offering is intended to help manufacturers make better layout decisions by creating a digital prototype of the factory before equipment is installed and commissioned. The suite includes AutoCAD Architecture, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Vault and Autodesk Navisworks.
Autodesk Plant Design Suite, for plant designers and engineers, delivers integrated plant design and project review capabilities for plant design projects. Packaged together in this suite are AutoCAD, AutoCAD P&ID, AutoCAD Plant 3D and Autodesk Navisworks.
The third offering is Autodesk Design Suite, for architects and designers using AutoCAD who want enhanced concept design, sketching and 3D visualization capabilities. This lineup includes AutoCAD, 3ds Max Design and Alias Design.
Major global metropolitan areas are implementing a vast number of technology, energy, transportation, and Internet projects to make the metropolis a friendlier, greener, safer, and more sustainable place to be.
Here’s a look at robots depicted in movies and on TV during the 1950s and 1960s. We tried to collect the classics here, omitting the scores of forgettable B movies such as Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine. Stay tuned for slideshows of robot stars from later decades.
