The viewer integration into the global OrderFox.com platform delivers benefits to new and current customers. Anyone who uploads CAD data can now have it converted directly into a 3D model within the Autodesk cloud and then view it on OrderFox.com. Metadata regarding the design files can also be embedded securely within the Viewer in more than 60 formats, while the data can be used and retrieved directly within the user’s browser without installing additional software. 

New OrderFox.com Features Within Autodesk Available

For users of the Autodesk programs—Fusion 360, Inventor and AutoCAD—the collaboration with OrderFox.com is said to offer strategic and operational advantages. The Fusion 360, Inventor and AutoCAD applications are supplemented with OrderFox.com plugins, enabling the user to interact, research and advertise CNC jobs directly on OrderFox.com. Within the software extensions, all advertised jobs are displayed with the respective status—active, draft or completed, and the user can edit and publish the advertised jobs directly within Fusion 360, Inventor and AutoCAD. In addition, users can quickly and easily access the plugin and customize it to their specific requirements. 

Collaboration Offers Global Benefits for All Sides

The companies say that this collaboration is geared toward the growth of the industrial sector and establishes better access to sourcing for both existing and future users of OrderFox.com and Autodesk. The collaboration provides various industries with much-needed access to resources, is focused on the user and provides daily business benefits that are not currently available to every company. 
With the integration of the plugins for Fusion 360, Inventor and AutoCAD, an even greater benefit will be available, and they are all free for Orderfox.com members and Autodesk customers. OrderFox.com says that it makes finding the right production partners, procurement and advertisement of jobs easier for its community members. Also, having access to the benefits of the OrderFox.com platform directly through Fusion 360, Inventor and AutoCAD, provides benefits, functionality and ease of use that is key to continued efficiencies in business for all users of OrderFox.com and Autodesk.
