UPDATED: An Industry First: Autodesk Provides Full-fledged 3D Design Software in a Web Browser, Including Revit!
"Customers will now be able to access Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Revit, Autodesk Maya and Autodesk 3ds Max design tools via a web browser. For the first time ever, customers can access full-fledged 3D design, engineering and entertainment work in a browser without sacrificing performance, power or functionality."
This technology preview is available in Autodesk Remote. Remote allows users to drive Autodesk software installed on their primary computer from a remote PC or iPad, utilizing its full power in their 3D design and modeling work regardless of the device. This capability has now been expanded to include access to Autodesk applications hosted in the cloud.
