. The creators of a new type of urban bike, the makers of a sustainable lighting solution, and a bunch of kids in the Bronx who invented a scooter mounted cell phone charger. These are some of the design types who use Autodesk Fusion 360, a cloud-based industrial and mechanical 3D design tool, to realize their visions. Fusion 360 was developed for small start-up companies who want a more advanced solution than Autodesk 123D, but don’t need or cannot invest in a more sophisticated modeling product like Autodesk Inventor or SolidWorks. Render your 3D know-how from rank beginner to confident practitioner in this intro course from Autodesk expert Mike Thomas.

Autodesk to invest up to $100 million in 3D printing companies

Autodesk announces the Spark Investment Fund, the world’s first 3D printing investment program that aims to invest in entrepreneurs, startups and researchers who push the boundaries of 3D printing technology.

Autodesk will invest up to $100 million in 3D printing companies over the next several years. The Spark Investment Fund will be operated within Autodesk.

Autodesk had earlier announced the release of Spark, an open and free software platform for 3D printing that will connect digital information to 3D printers in a new way. The materials agnostic Spark will connect to any hardware. Autodesk has also invited the entire 3D printing community to collaborate, build and improve the Spark platform, its associated Ember 3D printer and materials.

The Spark Investment Fund invites companies and individuals developing ground-breaking hardware, software, materials, marketplaces and maker spaces to participate in its 3D printing investment program. Recipients of the financial investment will also become part of the Spark partner program and have access to marketing and other developer services available to Spark partners. Autodesk aims to combine strategic investment and a value-added partnership opportunity to extend and empower the Spark ecosystem and spur innovation towards a more mature 3D printing experience.

Samir Hanna, vice president and general manager, Consumer Products and 3D Printing at Autodesk explains that taking a closed, top-down approach to innovating for additive manufacturing is no longer relevant with several industries including 3D printing recognising the value of tapping into entrepreneurs or startups with better ideas and approaches.

He added that the Spark Investment Fund will empower innovators to improve 3D printing, and help Autodesk unlock the tremendous promise of this technology.
