We have all probably downloaded an app to enhance any area of our social or work life but these traditionally have come from the Apple or Android app store but now Autodesk have launched their own app store.
Set up as Autodesk Exchange Apps it makes it easy to find and acquire plugin extensions, other companion applications, content and learning materials to tailor and extend many Autodesk design products.
Autodesk Exchange Apps can be accessed by using the Exchange Apps button in any of your Autodesk desktop products or simply Google it.
It is that straightforward to add plug-ins into your current Autodesk software that will provide you with extra features to help you complete your project with a bit more ease.
Just one app that can help you in Autodesk Revit is DigiPara Elevatorarchitect 2014. Which is a free plug-in to create elevator models within the software. It supports Revit in finding the correct size and number of elevators required. As well as guiding them to the point of reaching an optimal Revit model.
There is also a great deal of learning materials on the store to coincide with various Autodesk software systems. One to point out is AutoCAD Tips – Weekly Planner – Anytime Weekly Planner which provides you with an AutoCAD tip, command or trick every week.
Priced at $3.95 which works out at today’s exchange rate of £2.38 is a handy tool for AutoCAD information.
But as we keep mentioning about ‘the cloud’ it is worth pointing out Autodesk Remote. This is a stand-alone subscription app for Microsoft Window 7 and 8 which is compatible with all Autodesk products.
It lets you use Autodesk software that is installed on your primary computer whilst working on a remote computer. This app also has a companion iPad application for Autodesk Inventor so that you can work Inventor from anywhere.
Unfortunately all apps are priced in USD but you are able to purchase any app in any part of the world and use them wherever you want.
So now apps aren’t just for playing games they can help you with many of your Autodesk products and projects.
