Autodesk completes Firehole Technologies acquisition

 
March 20th, 2013 by Susan Smith

Autodesk has completed the acquisition of Firehole Technologies (DBA Firehole Composites), a privately held software company that specializes in design and analysis software for composite materials. This acquisition will enable Autodesk to expand its expertise and technology to help its customers manage the next generation of lighter, stronger, safer and more energy efficient materials.

Based in Laramie, Wyoming, Firehole Composites answers the need for new simulation technology that can predict and optimize the performance of the new light weight composite materials. With this acquisition, Autodesk can deliver this technology to a broad spectrum of design and engineering industries. According to Buzz Kross, senior vice president for Design, Lifecycle and Simulation products at Autodesk,  the Firehole team will add significant expertise in next generation materials and non-linear analysis, as well as industry-leading technologies that strongly complement the company’s solutions for structural, thermal and plastics analysis.

It is expected that Autodesk will sell and support the existing Firehole Composites product line, which includes Helius:MCT and Helius:CompositePro. Ultimately the technology will be geared up for closer integration with Autodesk products.
