Autodesk launches Labs

this new developer focused portal from Autodesk offers users a site that provides free, early access to prototypes, experimental and beta applications and technologies. Several beta applications are available immediately: a public beta trial of Google Earth Extension for AutoCAD-based applications; a translator for sharing AutoCAD DWG and Bentley MicroStation 2D V8 DGN files; a Web client for viewing DWF files without downloading any software; a utility for storing a copy of vaulted data: and a technology preview that allows users to convert non-native 3D parts into fully featured Inventor parts. Best of all, users do not have to be Autodesk customers to try the technology at Autodesk Labs. See or the PR here
