Autodesk University 2015

This article captures the highlights of the recently concluded Autodesk University 2015, whose theme of “The Future of Making Things” translated into many more developments for the Manufacturing industry compared to AEC and Media and Entertainment, and showed several cutting-edge manufacturing projects including a 3D printed airplane partition for Airbus designed using generative design and the development of bionic devices for missing limbs that can even surpass their normal capabilities. It also looks at the extension of manufacturing into construction, and a new application for cloud-based document management, BIM 360 Docs, which was the biggest news from Autodesk on the AEC front at this year’s event.
