SeeControl is currently transitioning from a licensed software business to a cloud subscription model and they plan on integrating design tools with new developments such as 3D printing. It is a perfect match for Autodesk as they develop 3D design software for the many uses of architecture, engineering, construction, and media industries. Autodesk plans to incorporate SeeControl’s technology into design solutions which will allow companies to gain perspective on how their products function. They are the perfect pair for designing and operating 21st century products and services. We wish both companies further success in the future!
