3D Design and Modeling

Don't let your design tool limit your creativity and ability to quickly create multiple design iterations. Design how you want in all phases of the product development process.

Electronics

Stop struggling with manual design workflows and ancient, interchange file formats. Gain all the advantages of a full-featured electronics tool and mechanical CAD in a single data-driven platform.

Simulation

Don’t wait. Test your designs early in the development process to determine usability and uncover costly flaws.

Generative Design

Expand your ability to innovate. Quickly generate high-performing design alternatives from a set of manufacturing and material constraints. Once a solution is chosen, edit your CAD-ready geometry.

LuxMea Studio is a multidisciplinary agency dedicated to exploring the boundaries of design and fabrication. Based out of the Autodesk Technology Centre in Toronto, LuxMea is using their residency to explore industrialized construction through digital fabrication, with a focus on researching generative design for large and complex structural systems.
Hoping to change the field of surgical education, Toronto-based residents of Marion Surgical are working to build the world’s first virtual reality and haptic feedback training platform for surgeons. Working out of the Autodesk Technology Centre in Toronto, they are adapting a virtual reality surgical simulation platform to be able to do surgical rehearsals by converting medical imagery into real patient models.

Documentation

Avoid exporting. Easily derive 2D drawings directly from your 3D models to ensure manufacturing accuracy.

Collaboration

Don't let locations, time zones, and extensive reviews lengthen your development process. View all design data from a single project dashboard and easily collaborate with both internal and external stakeholders.

William Maluki, the head of engineering at Gearbox, a prototyping space in Nairobi Kenya, was a 2018 San Francisco Technology Center Impact Resident. He leveraged the residency to develop an automated pipe-bender to support the Kenyan manufacturing sector. Gearbox and William's Impact Residency is supported by the Autodesk Foundation.

Manufacturing

Avoid costly rework, defects, and missed deadlines that impact your bottom line with truly integrated CAD + CAM. Utilize HSM technologies to quickly generate toolpaths that cut cycle times, reduce machine and tool wear, and produce high-quality finished parts.
