ROCKVILLE, Md., March 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Xometry, the largest U.S. marketplace for on demand manufacturing, announced today the launch of an app for Autodesk® Fusion 360® in collaboration with Autodesk (Nasdaq: ADSK). This revolutionary integration enables users to get an instant price and lead time from Xometry without leaving the Autodesk Fusion 360 platform. The app is free and can be downloaded directly from the Autodesk Fusion 360 App Store.
This app enables design engineers to see the direct impact of design changes on their part's cost and manufacturability without leaving Fusion 360. This instant feedback allows creators to make better parts and increase speed to market.
"Xometry's mission is to help engineers and designers bring their brightest ideas to life with ease," said Bill Cronin, Xometry's Chief Revenue Officer. "From this integration with Autodesk's powerful platform, engineers will get high-quality feedback quickly, enabling them to innovate faster and better."
As part of this unique partnership, Xometry will offer an exclusive 10% discount on orders placed through Autodesk Fusion 360, and Autodesk will offer a 20% discount on a Fusion 360 subscription exclusively to Xometry suppliers.
"Autodesk and Xometry share the common goal of doing everything possible to remove inefficiencies, increase transparency and collaboration, and generally improve the journey from design to manufacturing," said Srinath Jonnalagadda, Vice President of Industry Strategy at Autodesk. "Our aim is to remove barriers, early in the design process, to understanding what a part will cost to manufacture and how choosing new processes or more sustainable materials could increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and make a product more relevant. To that end, more closely coupling Xometry's capabilities with Fusion is a no-brainer."
The Xometry Autodesk Fusion 360 app marks the second collaboration between Xometry and Autodesk, joining the existing add-in for Autodesk Inventor. The Inventor add-in can be found for free, along with other popular CAD software add-ins on Xometry's website.
