From our world press day event:
Supporting the design process by enabling even more extensive collaboration on both 2D and model-based information, Autodesk Design Review software is now available free of charge as a download from the Autodesk website. The software speeds the design review process with viewing, measuring, and markup tools that are intuitive and do not require CAD software or expertise. Autodesk Design Review enables all-digital collaboration and communication of design changes between designers and their team members, tracking changes to 2D and 3D designs, and allowing easy integration of feedback into Autodesk manufacturing, AEC and geospatial applications, as well as word processing documents and spreadsheets.
New capabilities in Autodesk Design Review 2008 include:
- New and enhanced design review capabilities for non-CAD users, including improved 3D measure and markup, drawing version comparison, and better 3D model navigation.
- Better automation of design information with field data, using geo-referenced maps and connection to GPS devices.
- Increased productivity for viewing, printing, and searching designs, including native viewing and printing support for DWF files within Microsoft Vista XPS viewer; HP Instant Printing support for batch printing on HP Designjet printers; and support for on-demand access to ThomasNet’s in depth product and service information from within the design.
I will have more news this week. I will unveil things from a DWF perspective.
