The FATHOM team announced the launch of a new partnership with Autodesk. Its SmartQuote platform now fully integrates with Autodesk Fusion 360, synthesizing the design, prototyping, and production stages of product development.
Within Fusion 360, users can automatically convert their files, upload them through SmartQuote, and receive quotes within minutes. A range of materials, including high-performance FDM thermoplastics and PolyJet digital materials, are available through the SmartQuote plugin.
“Users can even produce multi-material assemblies and other highly complex projects,” said Carlo Quiñonez, FATHOM’s director of research. “Previously, assemblies required manual quoting—the plugin will streamline the development process and enable designers and engineers to go from digital concepts to physical parts more quickly and efficiently than ever before.”
