US: Microsoft has partnered with Autodesk to make its HoloLens device more useful. The company has built support for Autodesk’s Fusion 360 into its augmented reality headset to provide designers an innovative way to build 2D and 3D objects. “When we first saw HoloLens, we immediately sensed the possibilities for 3D engineering and industrial design. And after spending a bit of time with HoloLens, I realized how limiting it is to view 3D objects on a relatively small, flat screen rather than being able to use my entire real-world workspace for 3D design projects,” wrote Garin Gardiner, Developer Manager, Autodesk Fusion 360 business. The added support for Fusion 360 comes as the two companies build on their existing partnership, which was formed in May 2015 during Microsoft’s Build conference.
