On demand manufacturing platform Xometry has enhanced users’ experience on its platform by enabling them to get an instant price and lead time without leaving the Autodesk Fusion 360 platform.
To do so, the online manufacturing platform has developed in collaboration with Autodesk an app for Autodesk® Fusion 360® . Through this app, engineers can directly see the impact of design changes on their part’s cost and manufacturability without leaving Fusion 360.
The new solution marks the second collaboration between both companies that have previously worked together on “Autodesk Inventor add-in.”
“Xometry’s mission is to help engineers and designers bring their brightest ideas to life with ease,” said Bill Cronin, Xometry’s Chief Revenue Officer. “From this integration with Autodesk’s powerful platform, engineers will get high-quality feedback quickly, enabling them to innovate faster and better.“
Users will now benefit from a 10% discount on orders placed through Autodesk Fusion 360, and Autodesk will offer a 20% discount on a Fusion 360 subscription exclusively to Xometry suppliers.
“Autodesk and Xometry share the common goal of doing everything possible to remove inefficiencies, increase transparency and collaboration, and generally improve the journey from design to manufacturing,” said Srinath Jonnalagadda, Vice President of Industry Strategy at Autodesk. “Our aim is to remove barriers, early in the design process, to understanding what a part will cost to manufacture and how choosing new processes or more sustainable materials could increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and make a product more relevant. To that end, more closely coupling Xometry’s capabilities with Fusion is a no-brainer.”
The app is free and can be downloaded directly from the Autodesk Fusion 360 App Store.
