Autodesk to Develop Next Generation Solid Modeling Kernel to Improve and Speed Customers 3D Design and Product Development Cycles PrintManufacturing Division to Leverage ACIS Kernel to Create Enhanced Geometric Shape Engine for Advanced Design Performance (December 06, 2001)
Autodesk ShapeManager will give users the ability to build and modify complex virtual models, which require sophisticated mathematical computations to define and communicate three-dimensional design intent. Autodesk has added a large development team with substantial experience in solid modeling and development of the ACIS kernel, whose charter will be to create a purpose-built, feature-based modeling engine for Autodesk Inventor and fine-tuned for the demands of 3D users in the manufacturing marketplace.
"It is our goal to allow customers to be able to design more complex parts, and to provide increasing application stability and performance," said Robert Kross, vice president of the Manufacturing Division at Autodesk. "Managing our own kernel development will give Autodesks mechanical design software an edge in the market that no competitor can match and reinforces our commitment to the manufacturing marketplace. Our customers will see improved robustness, geometry coverage, and performance."
