Autodesk Announces Cross-Platform Stingray Game Engine With Extensive 3ds Max And Maya Integration

Game developers have a new player in the game engine market, and it's one most of them already know quite well: Autodesk.

Alongside Autodesk's other design tools, it offers a seamless solution for game developers and designers to rapidly prototype and build high performance, cross-platform games.

Autodesk Releases Fusion 360 Collaborative CAD Tool In The Play Store

As with most of Autodesk's apps, the newly released Fusion 360 has somewhat limited appeal. However, anyone who does have use for it will be crazy-excited, and they know who they are. Fusion 360 is the company's collaborative 3D design tool with a more basic feature set and affordable price (free for non-commercial use). The app is not a full-fledged design tool, but it allows remote review of designs.

[App Roundup] Our Top Seven Picks For The Best New Apps Of January 2015

January brought us the yearly madness that is CES, but that doesn't mean much in terms of software. The biggest news is probably Microsoft's continued expansion into multi-platform support for its biggest software sellers, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and now even Outlook.

Autodesk 123D Sculpt+ Lets You Play Around With Pro-Style 3D Modeling Tools

Capacitive touchscreens are not ideal tools for 3D modeling. Unless you have an active digitizer and stylus, or superhuman patience, or preferably both, the amazing models on display in the screenshots below will probably be unattainable in the new 123D Sculpt+ app. But that doesn't mean it's not fun to try out a tool that, at least on a technical level, has a lot in common with professional 3D modeling programs. The app comes from Autodesk (a company which should know a thing or two on the matter) and it's a free download.

AutoDesk 123D Catch Uses Dozens Of Photos To Create Interactive 3D Models Of Whatever You Want

Autodesk's mobile offerings for Android are almost always impressive or useful, often both. From SketchBook to Pixlr Express, the company has consistently provided Android users with great apps. Today, there's a new entry in Autodesk's catalog that lives up to that reputation - 123D Catch. In a nutshell, the app lets users create 3D models of real objects using just their smartphone camera.

To get started, the app suggests capturing 20-40 photos all around your chosen object, most at even level with the object, plus some from a top angle. The capture interface gives a handy ring guide to let you know how completely you've captured the object, and once you hit the check mark, the app will ask you to sign in in order to put together and share the finished model.
