Be sure to attend an Innovation Forum at Autodesk University. The Innovation Forums have been a real hit in past years and this year it is no exception. If you are unable to attend due to a class conflict or you are not attending at least watch the online recording of the Innovation Forums.
The first one yesterday was amazing but you can watch the recorded session. Autodesk Fellow and I am honored to say my colleague and team mate Tom Wujec led the Innovation Forum.
Design and Construction—Transformed
Technology is transforming the way we design and construct everything, from buildings to cities and the infrastructure that connects them together. The rise of reality capture, cloud computing, gamification, and social and mobile platforms as well as building information modeling is dramatically extending how the AEC industry creates value.

(Homes built digitally and onsite from onsite CNC cut parts)
- Pete Kelsey of Autodesk Showed the recent USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor 3D capture project. I was also involved in this special project and Pete mentioned that we got to not only participate in an amazing and humbling project, but got to ride in a Coast Guard MH65 helicopter.
- Denver International Airport Project - Eddy Krygiel Architect, HNTB
(Amazing look at the DIA project)

The next Innovation Forum is today.
Wednesday, December 4
10:00-11:30 a.m., Pacific time
Manufacturing matters. Today, advances in technology are transforming the way we make things. Promising new technologies, such as additive 3D printing and advanced robotic automation, have the potential to change how objects are fabricated and assembled.
New open and crowdsource platforms are transforming the tools and workflows of manufacturing. Intelligent materials will enable manufacturers to create products with fantastic new properties.
The New Industrial Revolution Innovation Forum brings together trailblazing innovators who are changing the way we manufacture. They distill the real practices from the public-relations hype, show what is immediately available and what is over the horizon, and describe how businesses, both large and small, can take advantage of the emerging revolution.
