In a single generation, the very nature of design tools has evolved far beyond what we expected. In order to understand how to best move forward, this session examines the key events in the Autodesk world that have triggered these changes and how they continue to affect the way designers work.
The session begins by reviewing milestones of products such as Softdesk and AutoCAD, and the original object-oriented programming tools. We also review the acquisition of Revit and review observations about the impact of this change. A discussion about current work environments and design authoring tools for a variety of project types follows, and wraps up with ideas about how concepts like project information modeling help us remove silos across disciplines. The session will include industry experts and their perspectives. Join us as we review our past journey and learn how to take advantage of the current design culture and the opportunities for improvement.
Presented by Expert Elite member David Butts with a panel of customer and Autodesk leaders; Ian Molloy, Martin Schmid, Matt Dillon, Richard Binning, Eric Wing, Ramesh Sridharan, and Tim Yarris.
