Third-Party Helpers

Autodesk’s long history of support for innovation among its user base has resulted in scores of third-party offerings designed to improve efficiency or extend the functionality of Autodesk products. These third-party applications can be found at the Autodesk App Store and elsewhere on the Internet and can be yours free of charge in some cases or at a reasonable price. The July 2019 issue of AUGIWorld highlights a number of offerings that have caught the eyes of our experts.
