Authentise, a leader in data-driven workflow tools for additive manufacturing, announced it is collaborating with Autodesk to release an integration that makes seamless use of Autodesk’s Netfabb software with Authentise’s additive workflow management tools possible.
As part of the integration, users of Authentise products can load geometries directly into Netfabb with a press of a button, using Autodesk’s cloud-based Forge developer platform. Saving files edited in Netfabb back into Authentise is simple, so that a seamless additive workflow from quoting, to CAD editing, version control, scheduling, and real-time, data-driven monitoring is possible. The integration is available to those customers who subscribe to both Authentise’s Additive Accelerator and any version of Autodesk Netfabb.
“We are pleased to hear that Authentise and Autodesk are collaborating to create a seamless, integrated additive workflow,” says Werner Stapela, Global Head of Additive Design & Manufacturing at Danfoss. “To date, additive manufacturing workflows have included dozens of steps with many unconnected tools. That is not scalable. To address this, we prefer integrating a variety of solutions as it enables choice and competition.”
