The One About MakerBot+Autodesk
It happened, they didn’t merge, but they are definitely teaming up. Autodesk and MakerBot have formed a strategic partnership, Autodesk is now selling the Rep2, and the 123D line is going to be further optimized to work with the our favorite little Bot. Source:
I am positive that there will be makers outraged by the Bot moving toward closed source software…hopefully they won’t freak out any longer then it takes them to realize how nice the 123D line of software is.
