Streamlining collaboration

Autodesk Streamline 3 is the latest release of Autodesk’s hosted collaboration service designed to allow manufacturers to share design information across extended manufacturing teams.

Using the new version of the software, the user now has the ability to create fully interactive 3D animations that can be used to communicate assembly information with manufacturing, assembly shop floor personnel, and field maintenance technicians.

What is more, bill of materials (BOM) information is now generated automatically when the design team publishes its design. That means that CAD data no longer needs to be exported into a spreadsheet. The BOM view is hence current with the rest of the published design data.

Lastly, an ‘Autodesk Point A Module’ gives the user a convenient way to access his own Autodesk Streamline data directly from the AutodeskPoint A customer web site (

The Autodesk Streamline 3 service is available immediately in North America. Customers can log onto for a free trial or call their local reseller for more information.
