Autodesk and CADCAM software specialist, ModuleWorks, announce a long-term partnership. The partnership enables Autodesk to continuously enhance and extend its Fusion 360 software platform with the powerful ModuleWorks toolpath calculation technology.

Fusion 360 is a cloud-based 3D modelling, CAD, CAM, CAE and PCB software platform that offers unified workflows and a consistent user experience for product design and manufacturing. An integral part of the platform is the software that generates high-performance, collision-free toolpaths for efficient multi-axis milling and turning.

The new partnership gives Autodesk ongoing access to the advanced toolpath calculation algorithms developed by the CADCAM specialist ModuleWorks. Integrated seamlessly into Fusion 360, the ModuleWorks components enable Fusion 360 to continuously evolve the performance, quality and functionality of its digital manufacturing workflows while maintaining its familiar user experience

As Stephen Hooper, VP of design & manufacturing at Autodesk explained: "With the Fusion 360 six–week release cycle and the fast pace of ModuleWorks technology development, this strategic partnership will help us to deliver a continuous flow of new functionality and performance enhancements to our global community of Fusion 360 users. I’m excited to see the impact that the ModuleWorks partnership will undoubtedly have in 2022 and beyond.”

Dr. Yavuz Murtezaoglu, managing director of ModuleWorks, said: "Our software components are designed for fast and seamless integration and it’s exciting to see how Autodesk is using our technology to accelerate the development and deployment of innovative machining solutions. We look forward to a successful cooperation and future advances in the technology."
