Open Collaboration Services Added to the Product Design Suite’s Subscription Services.

If real-time open collaboration (regardless of your chosen CAD tool), large scale 3D visualisation, clash detection analysis and project management ticks the boxes of wanted benefits in your design workflows, then take a look at Auiodesk's Mockup 360.

Product Design Suite Services are cloud based services such as Autodesk 360 (Document Hosting, Sharing, Editing, Collaboration and more), Optimisation Studies for Inventor & Cloud-Based Rendering. The Product Design Suite 2015 edition now comes with Mockup 360 & Remote Access as shown below:

Mockup 360

To summarise Mockup 360, it’s Autodesk Navisworks in the cloud and you also get an add-in for Inventor to upload your files to Mockup 360. The video below is a first time run to see how it handles.

Moving parts around is easy and constraining or mating parts is simple in the way you can only snap parts together. There are not any moving component constraint tools. The clash detection seemed to work well also.

I invited myself to collaborate when I added annotations but couldn’t figure it out. I tried to login and access it on my smartphone using an alternative Autodesk 360 account to no avail. Whether it was because I tried to do it all on one machine and it got confused, I'm not sure, but it wasn’t simple enough for me to get it working. 

The add-in for Autodesk Inventor worked very well but the file formats Mockup 360 supports are limited to Navisworks, DWF, JT, Sat, Step and STL. I would have thought since Navisworks supports so many file formats, that to have the same compatibility would have been a priority, especially with Inventor and AutoCAD files, since they come with Product Design Suite.

Here’s the video review of Mockup 360
