Autodesk, Inc. announced that Autodesk Developer Network (ADN) partners are now shipping products and applications compatible with Autodesk Inventor 2011 3D mechanical design and simulation software. ADN partners provide tailored applications and services for manufacturing customers’ specific design software needs, from mold making to data management to analysis and more.

“ADN partners are an important part of Autodesk’s success and we’re very committed to providing them with the support they need, as well as access to millions of potential customers and sales partners around the world to ensure that they grow their business as they help our joint customers gain a competitive edge,” said Jim Quanci, director of the Autodesk Developer Network. "Our ADN partners developing companion products for Autodesk Inventor 2011 provide manufacturing customers worldwide with customizable solutions that allow them to maximize their Digital Prototyping productivity and efficiency."

Digital Prototyping with Autodesk Inventor software gives manufacturers the ability to digitally design, visualize and simulate how a product will work under real world conditions before it is built. Digital Prototyping reduces reliance on physical prototypes, which helps reduce cost and speed time to market in highly competitive industries.
