Autodesk announced a collection of web-based capabilities called Autodesk Cloud. For those of you not familiar with Cloud Computing, it’s based on Internet protocols, and often involves virtualized resources. End-users access software, storage space or services via a web browser, without needing to understand the IT infrastructure or purchase expensive hardware required. Although Autodesk has been using cloud-based applications, such as Buzzsaw for over a decade, it’s relatively new to most students and instructors.
This all means new viewing, storage and sharing capabilities to help students design visualize and simulate their ideas with greater mobility due to accessibility from web browsers, desktop and mobile apps. Now classes can collaborate more efficiently by accessing files stored in the Cloud remotely from an iPad or apps such as AutoCAD WS. Simulate student Architectural designs further with Autodesk Green Building Studio and Autodesk Revit Conceptual Energy Analysis.
Autodesk Subscription now provides 3 GB of online storage per seat of software on Subscription for greater access to engineering documents, anywhere, anytime.
