Autodesk to make “major announcement” next week

Autodesk has informed selected journalists that it will make a “major announcement” next week regarding “the expansion of its AutoCAD portfolio of solutions.”

A few journalists will be given an advance briefing later this week, under a non-disclosure agreement that expires Tuesday, August 16.

The word “acquisition” was not part of any messaging to journalists.

Autodesk has scheduled a FaceCast to make their announcement; anyone can tune in. The video below will link to the announcement live on Tuesday, August 16 at 10:00 am US Pacific time. The current content of the video is a recorded session on the use of Autodesk products in automotive.
