Autodesk (San Rafael, California) is expanding its portfolio of products for additive manufacturing with the planned acquisition of Netfabb (Lupburg, Germany), a developer of software solutions for industrial additive design and manufacturing. Autodesk has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Netfabb, and will also make a strategic investment in its parent company, FIT Technology Group. The two companies will collaborate to increase adoption of technology for industrial AM.

Autodesk plans to support and expand the community of more than 80,000 designers, manufacturers, researchers and others currently using Netfabb solutions. The company will continue to develop, sell and support Netfabb software, and plans to integrate this technology into its own product design and additive manufacturing solutions such as Autodesk Fusion 360 and its Spark 3D printing program.

“We look forward to welcoming the Netfabb team to Autodesk and helping designers and manufacturers worldwide take 3D printing beyond prototyping and plastics, to reliably creating production-grade parts at scale,” said Samir Hanna, Autodesk vice president and general manager for Consumer & 3D Printing.
