The reintroduction of Autodesk T-Splines Plug-in for Rhino and discussion on a new version 4 coming was discussed in a recent live webcast and now available to watch on YouTube. You may remember T-Splines (my friends in nearby Provo Utah) were acquired back in November of 2011, and Autodesk stated at the time they would continue supporting non-Autodesk products which T-Splines was developed for. Since that time updates have been released and a renewed effort for new versions has been announced.
Catch up on T-Splines with the recent webcast by Autodesk T-Splines Product Manager Matt Sederberg and Autodesk CEO Carl Bass. This is another frank and honest discussion by Carl on design software tools and his actual use of the tools.
“T-Splines is a technology used by industrial designers, jewelers, and architects to easily create and edit freeform, organic designs.
A few months ago, Autodesk CEO Carl Bass delighted the T-Splines community by announcing on the T-Splines forum that T-Splines for Rhino development would resume actively. Watch this webinar to listen to Carl talk with Matt Sederberg, former T-Splines CEO and current Autodesk product manager, about what has happened with T-Splines over the past year, why Autodesk has decided to resume more active development, and what this means for the future. There will be live Q&A at the end.”
Even more exciting to me is T-Splines being integrated in the upcoming Autodesk Fusion 360 which is in beta currently at http://www.autodesk.com/Fusion360. I love Fusion 360 as you can do both complex organic product industrial design and solid modeling workflows on both Mac and Windows. Autodesk Fusion 360 is like a design tool that makes you a one man wolf pack of design.
