Autodesk customers will now be able to access Autodesk Inventory, Revit, Maya, and 3ds Max design tools via a Web browser.
Continuing to build on Autodesk's collaboration with Amazon Web Services (aWS) and OTOY, this new capability debuts as a tech preview and is an expansion of the remote access capabilities provided through Autodesk Remote software. With the new capability, developers can access 30-day trials of Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Maya and Autodesk 3ds Max software.
"Designers and engineers face deadline pressures and efficiency targets that demand work be more mobile than ever," said Jeff Kowalski, chief technology officer at Autodesk. "It's no longer a requirement to run sophisticated 3D design applications such as Inventor, Revit, 3ds Max or Maya on a powerful workstation. Now all you need is a simple browser and an Internet connection. We are excited to be first in the design industry to provide this capability."
In August, Autodesk Remote was made available to subscription and rental plan customers worldwide. Remote allows users to drive Autodesk software installed on their primary computer from a remote PC or iPad, utilizing it in their 3D design and modeling work regardless of the device. The collaboration with AWS and OTOY expands on this capability to include access to Autodesk applications hosted in the cloud.
