Autodesk and Microsoft collaborate to improve the future of Digital and Physical 3D Production
In order to progress the future of digital and physical production, Autodesk has tied a knot with Microsoft Corp. to implant its 3d printing platform in Windows 10 as well as exchange and make use of information from its 3d modeling software into Microsoft's mixed reality atmosphere, Microsoft HoloLens.
Digital models created with Autodesk Maya or Fusion 360 can be presented in the mixed reality atmosphere empowered by HoloLens.
This feature will be very useful for game developers and filmmakers to enhance the formation of a new generation of entertainment experiences. The designers and engineers will be able to view a full scale model digitally througout the upfront design stage of product development and reduce the time and cost necessary for physical prototypes prior to fabrication.
In near future, designers and engineers will get the ability to generate 3D models with their own conception through Autodesk software, like Fusion 360, view the models with HoloLens, and make them 3d printable on Spark supported printers.
Autodesk will implant its Spark 3D printing software platform in Windows 10 facilitating the windows users to make the best use of superior 3d printing application that rationalize the additive manufacturing method for a diversified software, material, and printer choices.
In order to expand the reach and development of the 3D printing industry, Autodesk will arrange the Spark APIs accessible for free to the Microsoft developer community to build upon.
Besides, Autodesk will also connect with Microsoft as a founding member of a 3D Manufacturing Format (3MF) association to produce and support a conventional 3D interchange and printing format
Microsoft and its global community of developers make it possible for all the consumers to deal with the complications of 3d design & printing.
