Design, engineering, and entertainment software giant Autodesk extended its summer buying spree with the purchase of technology related assets from Numenus, a Koblenz, Germany-based software provider of high-end visualization technology (realtime ray tracing) used to render and review 3D datasets. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition, announced today, is the third in a sequence that began in mid-July with the purchase of Pixlr, a free online service for creating, editing, and sharing images. Earlier this month, Autodesk snapped up San Francisco-based Instructables, an online community for people who want to discover, share ,and be inspired by DIY project ideas and how-to information. The Numenus purchase is expected to boost the efficiency of Autodesk’s digital prototyping tools, specifically the company’s “ability to address high fidelity visualization for technical surfacing and advanced design reviews as part of Autodesk’s commitment to automotive design workflows.”
