Success Stories

Explore documented success stories and testimonials featuring the value of Autodesk technology and Partner services delivered to solve for critical business requirements and desired customer outcomes.

In House Adoption of Robotic WAAM Additive
Based in Lafayette, Colorado Fortius Metals is an industry leading producer of wire alloys for large format metal 3D printing and robotic welding.  Fortius’ wire products offer advanced metallurgy and can weld materials typically considered non-weldable, such as 1xxx, 2xxx, 6xxx, and 7xxx series aluminum by solving hot tearing and hot cracking issues and refining the grain structure.With any metal additive process, it can be challenging knowing where to begin. Leveraging CAM software allows Fortius to produce parts repeatably with established welding parameters that can be adopted to various applications. Repeatability ensures that Fortius Metals alloy achieves the desired metallurgical results for demanding applications. The only way to establish the welding parameters is through in-house testing. Utilizing a powerful CAM solution enables rapid design iterations which provides a faster path to a final design. This empowers customers using Fortius wire alloys to have a distinct baseline advantage when implementing new alloys to their own processes.
Batesville Expands their Mold Business into Swiss Production Machining
As a long design consultant and manufacturer of plastics tooling, Batesville was faced with diversifying their company profile by investing into Swiss style machinery to better serve the medical industry as well as the traditional markets. Although Batesville had expertise in programming milling machines including complex 5 Axis machines, integrating a multi-task turning machine was outside their skill set.
Shagbuilt Realizes Huge Success Through Inhouse Design and Manufacturing
Shagbuilt is a company that produces high quality hand-built Tattoo Machines that has been in business for 22 years. Having always outsourced all manufacturing, two years ago they decided to bring manufacturing in house. Doing so required that they invest in manufacturing equipment. With zero design or manufacturing experience, the software needed to be easy to use yet robust enough to quickly produce these components in order to be successful.
Fully Automatic and Adaptive Blade repair realized with Autodesk PowerMILL
H&W Tool Earn contract award for scaling the 5 Axis CNC manufacturing process of titanium engine blades scaled to production quantities while achieving profitability.Current processes include casting the blades, which leaves a variable amount of excess titanium on each blade. Which would result in having to process each blade uniquely. This process is vastly too time consuming to be scalable or profitable, each blade taking on average 2 hours of programming time. 
Complex 6 Axis Machine Requires Sophisticated Post Development
AIS was using a mix of various CAM software and wanted to standardize on Autodesk software. One of the obstructions to doing this was the variety of Post Processors required to program existing machinery. Although most of the CNC machines posed minimal concern, the Makino’s Variable Geometry (VG) machine posed the greatest challenge. This particular machine had long been discontinued and there were not many sold, being such a specialized machine in that it was a Variable Geometry machine. Compounded with being a 6 Axis Mill added additional complexity. What made the Makino Variable Geometry (VG) machine so different is that programming these machines is much different than any other machine, including other Makino machines. What makes these machines so different is the hyper accuracy as well as being massively rigid.
Robotic Additive Realized for National Shipbuilders
EWI (formerly known as Eddison Welding Institute) empowers industry leaders to overcome complex manufacturing challenges and seamlessly integrate new processes to bring products to market more quickly and efficiently. This project’s overall goal is to develop a standardized (DED) Directed Energy Deposition (AM) Additive Manufacturing process using a 7 Axis robotic arc on a large format 3 axis gantry rail system (10 Axis Total). The intention of the system is to build a wide range of structures and components. This project will develop the digital data workflow processes, establish workforce competencies, help break down process qualification barriers, demonstrate representative qualifications, and provide standardized equipment for robotic arc Directed Energy Deposition Additive Manufacturing.
Autodesk Named User Licensing Saves Time & Money
The challenge is the customer was realizing lost productivity due to a lack of understanding on how software was being used and through ongoing I.T related costs for ongoing license management and updating. Customer has multiple locations with various products and contract, all with various renewal dates. To make this matter more complex the customer had a variety of deployment mechanisms where some users were using networked "multi-user" licenses along with other less efficient licensing tools.
