Autodesk, the software company well known for its flagship AutoCAD program, has long been the leading provider of 3D design software for the architectural, engineering, construction, manufacturing, and entertainment industries. In 2008, it made Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies list (and rightfully so) for its role in several major design, manufacturing, and entertainment projects.
Now, Autodesk is finally putting its award-winning visual expertise in the hands of the average consumer with the latest update to its Socialcam mobile app.
