Our team

Welcome to the official blog of Autodesk Project Butterfly!

This blog is written by the Project Butterfly team and will focus on our technology and the people working on and using Project Butterfly.

Taking CAD to the Web is a big undertaking, so we welcome the help of the CAD community to guide us along the way. Your ideas and feedback will help shape our product and make Project Butterfly better.

We started our way as a start-up company, and today we are very proud to be a part of the Autodesk family. Having said that, we plan on keeping the same start-up spirit we started with. This means frequent improvements to Project Butterfly, a lot of interaction with the user community, and a passion to pushing the envelope farther as to what CAD on the Web can do.

Our team is based in beautiful Tel-Aviv, Israel. If you find yourself in town, feel free to visit us to give us your feedback about Project Butterfly, and share your thoughts on what you believe CAD on the Web is capable of.

The people bringing you this blog are:
Sr. Product Manager Iris Shoor.
Sr. SW development manager Tal Weiss.
Product manager Asaf Sagi.
We look forward to hearing from you!

    I am an engineer I work on developing an interesting project (computerized map of the heritage of Tunisia)
    I wonder if there are APIs available to developers to integrate this project into their applications or some modules such as displaying DWG plan with flash.

    what’s about the prices / the costs of the tool or the account? Will it be free? Or only at the beginning?

      Hi, Peter.

      We’re not sure when Butterfly will be included in Autodesk’s commercial product line, and when that happens – how much will it cost, if at all.

      One thing is for sure – you will always be able to access and download the data you imported, and the access will remain free. You shouldn’t worry about importing to Butterfly.

        hi there,
        very important and interesting project!
        but what is the goal be achieved?
        it’s something like: I buy software, install it on my server, I copy all my autocad files on the server and then I can use it online from around the world? or uploaded files will always be on your server, as the software?

        tnx a lot
        very good work on lab!!

    Hi Luca,
    Thanks for the compliments!
    At the moment we don’t intend to release Project Butterfly for personal or corporate deployment. We’re focusing on delivering it in a SaaS model.
    We’re still not sure about how Project Butterfly is going to be priced, but the general idea is that you subscribe to using Butterfly, just like you do with Flickr and other services.

    Will there be an iPhone or Android app to access drawing files?

    That would be cool.

    Nice work guys, My company has many design offices around the world. Collaborative working between remote offices, and remote offices and sites via the web adds another degree of flexibility in communicating engineering changes, queries and updates. Good luck with the project !
