Autodesk, Inc. has unveiled Autodesk CAM 360. This, states the company, 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. It 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. 

CAM 360 builds upon Autodesk’s existing suite of cloud service offerings for manufacturers, which provide users virtually anytime, anywhere access to flexible, next generation tools to create, simulate and turn their digital prototypes into physical reality. In addition to CAM 360, the company’s manufacturing cloud service offerings include Autodesk PLM 360, Autodesk Sim 360 and Autodesk Fusion 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.

CAM 360 is expected to be generally available next year in select markets. For more information and a chance to experience CAM 360, visit www.cam.autodesk.com.
