Xometry Launches Autodesk Fusion 360 App Version 2.0
The updated app features instant manufacturability feedback and multiple part upload capabilities along with pricing and lead time estimates, Xometry reports.
October 21, 2021
Xometry has launched version 2.0 of its app for Autodesk Fusion 360, a CAD design platform. The app is free and can be downloaded directly from the Autodesk Fusion 360 App Store.
Updated with new features in addition to the instant price and lead time capabilities launched earlier in 2021, Version 2.0 now offers manufacturability feedback and multiple part upload features, improving processes for engineers and designers working in Autodesk, according to Xometry. With manufacturability feedback, engineers and designers receive information on part manufacturability while they are designing in the Fusion 360 interface, allowing them to improve their designs. With the ability to upload multiple parts, engineers can price and receive feedback on multiple parts at the same time.
“We are thrilled to deepen our partnership with Autodesk with Version 2.0 of the Xometry Autodesk Fusion 360 app,” says Randy Altschluler, Xometry’s CEO. “Now designers can get all the key information they need—pricing, lead time and manufacturability feedback—through the app while they are designing their parts.”
“Autodesk Fusion 360 connects and streamlines workflows across the entire product development process,” says Stephen Hooper, Autodesk vice president and general manager, Fusion 360. “Providing our customers real-time insights through the Xometry app about the cost and feasibility of manufacturing a part, at the very moment they're designing that part, is a huge step toward saving time that might otherwise be lost developing a flawed, unworkable, or unaffordable design.”
Xometry offers a 10% discount on all custom parts orders placed through Autodesk Fusion 360 app in the US. The company is also rolling a European version of the app with multiple languages and pricing in Euros.
Xometry also offers an add-in for Autodesk Inventor. The Inventor add-in is available for free on Xometry's website along with other CAD software add-ins.
