Changes to the Autodesk Product Design Collection

The last 12 months has seen the Autodesk Design Suites make way for Autodesk’s new Design Collections under the subscription model. Up until recently, the benefit from moving from a Product Design Suite or Factory Design Suite on maintenance to a Product Design Collection on subscription was merely financial as both products contained similar offerings.

However, the Product Design Collection has now evolved to include additional features that improve and enhance the workflows within the design team and at the same time has been renamed to Product Design & Manufacturing Collection. Here we see take a look at some of the features and the benefits they bring.
