  • Autodesk is a designer program for 2-D and 3-D designs. A variety of areas, such as manufacturing, engineering and building construction, architecture and media and entertainment, can find applications for this program. Modeling in Autodesk involves a variety of tools that bring users and ideas together in a way that encourages collaboration and that makes future projects easy to design and implement.


    Project Butterfly

    Project Butterfly is a collaborative, cloud-based effort. The Internet is the "cloud" because operations take place on remote servers, not on the user's computer. The Butterfly project gives AutoCAD users the opportunity to view, edit and collaborate in real time on DWG, or drawing, files online. The cloud computing technology uses a browser, so anyone can log onto a design website and access the same version of a file. This is different from the current way many engineering teams collaborate, which is by simply emailing files around.

    Access to the cloud project is easy if the user has an Autodesk Single Sign-on account. This account appears in other communities, such as Autodesk Labs and the Subscription Center. For users with an existing Project Butterfly--specific account, they can access the Butterfly project that way.


    Project Photofly

    Photographs are as common as music. However, users can create 2-D and 3-D images with photographs. This is where Project Photofly is essential. It is a technology Web service that allows designers in various fields, such as architectural, design, media and entertainment and manufacturing, to create 3-D models from a series of photographs.

    What makes Project Photofly different is that employs the Camera Factory, an automatic calibration engine to simplify and automate the imaging process. This is unlike most image-based modeling techniques. These others require manual modifications and changes to photographs and a high level of expertise. However, Project Photofly uses the Photo Scene Editor, which allows designers to connect to and use the Camera Factory Web service. Then they can operate any of the Autodesk 3-D modeling programs (AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit or Autodesk 3ds Max) to work with the data in a DWG format. Moreover, in the meantime, they can use the Camera Factory tool to add the model above the top of the images.


    Project Neon

    One problem that designers have always had is not having the necessary hardware to complete a drawing project. This is where Project Neon can help. If a designer has access to the cloud, she can create and manipulate photo-realistic renderings of the projects without having dedicated rendering hardware at her disposal. Because rendering multiple files can cost more and even take days, any software project that can control these elements would be welcome. This is the strength of Project Neon. Based on the cloud, the support it gives promises to allow firms to render the costly and time-consuming multiple views of a project simultaneously in a small amount of time.
