Autodesk Labs is proud to announce the availability of a technology preview for Content Search. Please give it a try and let us know what you think: [email protected].
Since our mission at Labs is to explore new ways to enhance the productivity of designers, we want to get your feedback on this technology as a means to connect users (on the buying side) with content providers (on the selling side). The technology preview is based on open source Lucene search technology, and the content is from Autodesk as well as an aggregation from some of our partners.
You have all used a search engine. The experience with Autodesk Content Search is the same. After either searching or browsing for what you are looking for, select the row in the search results page that you are interested in. This gives you additional details about the design. If the design is a DWF file, you can view it with Autodesk Freewheel. Yeah! You can download the relevant design file to your computer. It's just that easy.
Sharing new technologies to locate design information is alive in the lab.
