Autodesk should use some of the features here to fix their "Inventor" software package. It has to be one of the hardest programs to draw 3D parts in. Solidworks still has them beat in that department.  

With so much software, it's time Autodesk consolidates too.

Appears to be along the lines of Sketch-up...

I agree, Greg. It's a great starting point for students and a smart move by Autodesk.

Interesting article.  While these basic primitive shapes in 123D are not suited for complex surfacing design, this looks like a fun app to teach newcomers about modeling in 3D.

Cabe, this is an interesting application.  Getting this kind of software into lots of hands will definately accelerate the acceptance of this kind of design and manufacture.  It is interesting that so much can be done with 3D printing.  That area is moving fast.  Perhaps we are seeing the begining of customized, or mass customization, manufacture as oppossed to mass production.

Nice article, Cabe. The video really makes the concept come to life. You mentioned in the article that this is also aimed at do-it-yourselfers. Does Audodesk have a discounted version (perhaps a cloud-based system) for this app?
