Autodesk and GrabCAD partnership extends CAD’s reach in the cloud

Autodesk and GrabCAD partnership extends CAD’s reach in the cloud | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it
Both AutoCAD 360 and the new Fusion 360 3D modeler will be available for real-time drawing and editing of drawings and models inside the GrabCAD Workbench environment.
Jed Fisher's insight:

If you are still saying the "cloud" won't happen, it's really about time to stop :-) Cloud is coming, it's here, it's happened!

GrabCAD currently has about 700,000 members; they will top the million mark very quickly thanks to this new partnership.

While this is very big news for GrabCAD I must admit I'm more than slightly disappointed they've gone the Autodesk only way. Despite what Autodesk marketing might say there is more to 3D/CAD/AEC than just Autodesk products.

Is the age of really useful CAD libraries finally here?

Jed Fisher's insight:

Last week GrabCAD very impressively hit 400,000 registered Engineers and Designers. 100,000 more in less than 3 months!

In the the AEC space, new arrival BIM Object (under a year old) has just passed a 100,000 downloads of their intelligent smart BIM object's (a very different and impressive approach which I will write more about soon).

Then there is Sketchup 3D Warehouse, once own by Google, now by Trimble, this is filled with all types of models, mainly buildings made in Sketchup. They keep quiet about the number of models but from my own research I estimate their is around 5.1 Million models in the database!

In the games space, Unity Asset Store continues to grow at a phenomenal rate and is well used by Unity3D designers and developers.

And finally, the long time Turbosquid continues to be used in the media and entertainment space.

A 3D model for every occasion!
