Autodesk Acquires Instructables

Autodesk Acquires Instructables3D software giant Autodesk, makers of Maya, Revit, 3DS Max and AutoCAD announced they’ve acquired Instructables. Instructables provides do-it-yourself instructions for a wide variety of projects, some of which involve 3D printing. Instructables chief Eric J. Wilhelm says: 
Autodesk gives us the scale and support to grow and improve Instructables, build some great apps, and continue our mission of creating a positive impact on the world..  Autodesk is a great cultural fit for Instructables.  They make tools for creative people:  they’re the world leader in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software. 
We suspect that’s the key element here: Autodesk provides products for creative people and Instructables is a place where you’ll find lots of them. Probably a good strategic move by Autodesk – but will this have any effect on the Maker movement? We suspect not so much; Instructables will continue doing their thing, now backed by Autodesk.
