Autodesk, Inc., is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Since its introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk continues to develop the broadest portfolio of 3D software for global markets.Customers across the manufacturing, architecture, building, construction, and media and entertainment industries—including the last 19 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects—use Autodesk software to design, visualize, and simulate their ideas before they're ever built or created. From blockbuster visual effects and buildings that create their own energy, to electric cars and the batteries that power them, the work of our 3D software customers is everywhere you look.Through our apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Android, we're also making design technology accessible to professional designers and amateur designers, homeowners, students, and casual creators — anyone who wants to create and share their ideas with the world.
Wilfried Vancraen started Materialise twenty years ago in Leuven, Belgium, through its work with Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, Materialise works to put great products aimed at niche markets directly into the marketplace as well as helping make the prototypes of products later manufactured by the millions. With its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium, and branches worldwide, Materialise has been playing an active role in the field of Additive Manufacturing (AM) since 1990. In addition to having the largest single-site capacity of AM equipment in Europe, Materialise is also a provider of innovative software solutions.
solidThinking creates, develops, and markets technology that helps our user community bring the most desirable products to their customers faster. solidThinking was started in 1991 to meet the needs of Italian industrial designers, and acquired by Altair in 2008. Our offering has now been expanded to assist product development for designers, engineers, architects, and scientists. solidThinking software is sold and supported by a global network of distribution partners and is also available as part of the Altair HyperWorks suite.
FreeCAD is a parametric 3D modeler made primarily to design real-life objects of any size.Parametric modeling allows you to easily modify your design by going back into your model history and changing its parameters. FreeCAD is open-source and highly customizable, scriptable and extensible.FreeCAD is multiplatfom (Windows, Mac and Linux), and reads and writes many open file formats such as STEP, IGES, STL, SVG, DXF, OBJ, IFC, DAE and many others.
Who is FreeCAD for? A couple of user cases:
The home user/hobbyist. Got yourself a project you want to build, have built, or 3D printed? Model it in FreeCAD. No previous CAD experience required. Our community will help you get the hang of it quickly!The experienced CAD user. If you use commercial CAD or BIM modeling software at work, you will find similar tools and workflow among the many workbenches of FreeCAD.The programmer. Almost all of FreeCAD's functionality is accessible to Python. You can easily extend FreeCAD's functionality, automatize it with scripts, build your own modules or even embed FreeCAD in your own application.The educator. Teach your students a free software with no worry about license purchase. They can install the same version at home and continue using it after leaving school.
The success of Polygonica derives from the strength of its core technology, which is based on the same geometric engine that powers the MachineWorks software toolkit.MachineWorks has been developed, optimised and used since 1994 to become the industry standard for CNC simulation and verification component software.Benchmarks against the leading applications in the market show that Polygonica performance when fixing models is substantially faster. We think that the accuracy and stability of its engine is remarkable but we leave that for you to test.- See more at: http://www.polygonica.com/the-polygonica-story#sthash.EQw2to80.dpuf
Humanity evolves because we innovate and build tools to overcome obstacles in our lives. It’s the foundation of society, no matter which corner of the world you live in. We enjoy and take pride in our ability to overcome our obstacles by bringing our ideas into reality.At SpaceClaim, we believe that technology shouldn’t hinder the innovation of new ideas, nor should it get in the way of developing high quality tools. Technology should accelerate and evolve our ability to work better and more efficiently. More importantly, the processes of creating and producing shouldn’t be stripped of their inherent enjoyment, especially by the very technology developed to support it.In the beginning, we evaluated a number of product development workflows - from concept modeling to production – and discovered areas along the spectrum desperate for improvement. We set out to develop solutions that make the entire workflow run more smoothly while supporting the user in an easy, rewarding, yet powerful way.
To revolutionize product development and manufacturing workflows by enabling engineers to work faster while rediscovering the rewarding nature of bringing their ideas to production.
In May 2014, SpaceClaim was acquired by ANSYS, Inc
