Autodesk Increases Power of 3D Design with 2012 Design and Creation Suites New Suites Provides Easier Access to Broader Set of Design, Simulation and Visual Communication Software. SAN RAFAEL, Calif., March 22, 2011 — Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) unveiled its 2012 portfolio of 3D design, engineering and entertainment software and an expanded family of design suites. The new suites will make it easier for customers across a wide range of industries to adopt and use a broader set of Autodesk's comprehensive and sophisticated design software. The suites will be available in convenient packages with a range of capabilities that bring together compatible sets of complementary products that, when used together, help to manage data, workflow and process. "The new family of Autodesk design suites continues our goal of democratising design and creativity", said Autodesk president and chief executive officer Carl Bass. "These software suites contain a complete set of tools that work together to help our customers imagine, design and create world-leading products, buildings, infrastructure and blockbuster films." Autodesk 2012 Design and Creation Suites The Autodesk family of design and creation suites offer greater access to powerful industry specific design tools in a convenient package and are more cost-effective and easier to install, deploy, and manage than individual products. Suites also make it easier to standardise on a single suite across multiple departments, which provides greater flexibility to innovate and more easily respond to changing business requirements. In addition, Suites can make it easier for customers to explore new products and technologies, and provide a consistent user experience, making it easier to learn and work with multiple Autodesk tools. Autodesk Design Suite 2012 combines the power and flexibility of AutoCAD software with intuitive sketching, conceptual design, presentation, and visualisation solutions so architects and product designers can create compelling designs, seamlessly share data across all design phases and make visual communication an integral part of the design process. The foundation of the Autodesk Design Suite is AutoCAD 2012 software, which has been updated with new and expanded workflows for conceptual design, model documentation and reality capture. Autodesk Product Design Suite 2012 is a new, comprehensive and cost effective design solution for creating compelling products. The suite features Autodesk's leading design authoring, visualisation, and simulation software for manufacturers, including Autodesk Inventor 2012 software, which debuts powerful new features for sustainable product design. Autodesk Factory Design Suite 2012 offers unique factory-specific functionality inside AutoCAD and Inventor and combines them with powerful visualisation tools all in one economical and convenient purchase. The suite can help manufacturers, machine builders and systems integrators better design and optimise layouts of machine lines or entire manufacturing facilities.
