Freewheel internal competition with release of Glue and others?

Autodesk,

 

With the aquisition of Vela, you have a lot of projects that include 3D Model viewers like -

 

etc...

 

Are there any plans to streamline all these platforms?  What are the differences and plans to separate your commercial products from a project like Freewheel.  I am a firm believer that Freewheel will open up BIM to the non-progressive engineers and architects.  Do you plan on implementing any features from Glue into Freewheel?

 

Thanks!

Over time I see Freewheel being replaced  by other services that are part of Autodesk 360.

Will you be offering a autodesk 360 viewer api for free like freewheel?

IMHO Autodesk Freewheel cannot be retired until our Autodesk 360 services allow a customer to embed his design in his own web site so that his customers can interact with it.

I'd agree with you and hope that you are correct, but I fear you are not Scott.  Looks like your shutting freewheel down:

I know Glue's API is out and should be able to do the same as freewheel, only catch is that to get an access token you have to pay over $1000 to get into the developer api.

 

Looks like glue isn't quite FREEwheel?

Yes Autodesk Freewheel is being shut down so users can graduate to Autdoesk 360. Autodesk Blue Glue is not required for the change.
