Software maker Autodesk is set to launch an update to its flagship drafting application that is designed to make it easier for owners to use digital documents instead of paper.
The software maker emphasizes collaboration and organization in an update to its AutoCAD applications for architectural drafting.
Autodesk announced Tuesday the release of a new version of Architectural Studio, the company's new sketching and collaboration software for architects. Architectural Studio enables architects to produce and share sketches of projects that can later be converted into finished drawings using the company's AutoCAD drafting software. Architectural Studio 2 includes expanded tools for creating more detailed sketches and 3D models, and performance enhancements that make the software run faster. The software is available on a subscription basis from Autodesk.
Design and drafting software leader Autodesk announced Tuesday that it is expanding its subscription software program to Europe. Under the program, businesses pay an annual fee to access applications such as AutoCAD via Autodesk's Point A Web site rather than buying licenses and installing software on individual PCs. Autodesk launched the program in North America last August. Major software makers such as Microsoft and Oracle have been pushing subscription plans. The format benefits software companies with steadier revenue and piracy protection, while customers save on maintenance and support.
The success of the AutoCAD maker, a solid, mainstream performer, continues to challenge its prospects for faster growth in the future.
