Autodesk CAM 360, unveiled today at the Autodesk University, is the industry's first cloud-based solution for computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). By tapping into the near infinite computing power of the cloud, CAM 360 allows users to take advantage of collaboration tools and shared data storage, and provides users with unparalleled ease-of-use and flexibility.
CAM 360 allows users to rapidly engage with co-workers and customers, and turn around the most demanding machining projects much faster than ever before. Additionally, CAM 360 is the multi-platform CNC programming solution that transcends the normal limitations associated with traditional desktop workflows.
"Two years ago, we launched PLM 360, creating a new paradigm for product lifecycle management," said Robert Buzz Kross, senior vice president at Autodesk. "In September 2012, we broke down the barriers to testing and analysis with Sim 360. Last year, we ushered in a new era of cloud-based design with Fusion 360. And now, Autodesk delivers the final piece of the solution-manufacturing-with CAM 360."
Unlike standalone CAM tools, CAM 360 is an integrated cloud-based solution that allows users to take advantage of Autodesk's next generation Digital Prototyping platform, including the modeling tools found in Fusion 360.
