SAN RAFAEL, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 27, 2010 — Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK), a world leader in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software, today announced the Autodesk Plant Conversion Program for CADWorx Customers. The program is designed to help users of Intergraph CADWorx software transition to the benefits of the Autodesk Plant Design Suite 2011, a new software suite for plant designers who need powerful plant design and whole-project review capabilities in a single integrated package at a low price. As part of the program, CADWorx users who wish to transition to the Autodesk Plant Design Suite will be provided a 6-step project start-up tool kit upon purchasing a license to the Suite. The kit provides new project templates, migration tools, and reference materials to help simplify the conversion of legacy CADWorx specs and catalogs to the new Autodesk Plant Design Suite 2011.
“By taking advantage of the program, CADWorx users can more easily migrate existing catalogs and specs and get started with the Autodesk Plant Design Suite with minimal difficulty and maximum time-to-productivity,” said Mark Strassman, vice president of Plant Solutions at Autodesk. “The Autodesk Plant Conversion Program for CADWorx Customers minimizes the barriers to adoption by not only helping users get up to speed quickly, but also giving them a better, more integrated AutoCAD-based solution for plant design and whole-project review.”
