Farnell to distribute Autodesk's tools across Europe

February 08, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Farnell element14 has announced struck a new franchise with mechanical design software provider Autodesk to sell its products in Europe, including two new products from Autodesk, the AutoCAD LT and the AutoDesk Fusion 360.

Aimed at mechanical design engineers, AutoCAD LT delivers smarter tools to bring precision to 2-D drawings with applications in rendering 2-D drawings and prototyping.

AutoCAD LT is based on AutoCAD technology, a design platform trusted by millions of professionals for more than 30 years.  Auto LT now offers features such as line fading and smoother curves for a more stunning visual experience; smart dimensioning, which automatically creates appropriate, context-based measurements; and the ability to produce smaller, smarter, and more searchable PDFs and even attach PDFs to drawings. AutoDesk Fusion 360 enables mechanical design, 3D modelling, rapid prototyping, and 3D prototyping (3D printing). It is claimed to be the world’s first cloud-enabled 3D design software and is the first 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE tool of its kind. It brings together CAD, CAM, and CAE, connecting the entire product development process in a single cloud-based tool.

AutoCAD Fusion 360 connects the entire product development process in a single cloud-based platform that works on both Mac and PC allowing the user to design, test, and fabricate in a single tool.
