A new integration between Autodesk’s Netfabb software with Authentise’s additive workflow management tools looks to allow users of Authentise products to load geometries directly into Netfabb with a single press of a button, using Autodesk’s cloud-based Forge developer platform.

Saving files edited in Netfabb back into Authentise is also simplified, so that a seamless additive workflow from quoting, to CAD editing, version control, scheduling, and real-time, data-driven monitoring is now possible.

The integration is available now to customers who subscribe to both Authentise’s Additive Accelerator and any version of Autodesk Netfabb, such as technology engineering company Danfoss, which commented on the launch.
