Autodesk Slaps Manufacturing with Collaboration, Puts CAM in the Cloud

Autodesk is blowing off the metal shavings of static shop-side subtractive manufacturing, delivering the first of its kind collaborative CAM solution. Today, the software product/service company kicked off Autodesk University 2013 in a chilly Las Vegas announcing Autodesk CAM 360, pushing the computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) process to the cloud and milling out a sweet little oily spot for manufacturing in their Autodesk 360 cloud portfolio.Autodesk University 2013 covers a lot of products across many industries, but a large focus this year is manufacturing and, as you can imagine, they have no qualms over booting more applications to the cloud.
