We saw it in the Industry Keynotes. We saw it in classes. We saw it in the Quads and meetups and in the Hub. It was community, in all its shapes and sizes. Communities large and small focused around common interests, shared challenges and goals, and a commitment to ongoing learning. On Wednesday at AU Las Vegas, community happened. Connections were forged. And collectively, we all took another step into the future of making. Let’s roll back the tape and review what went down.
In the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Keynote, Nicolas Mangon talked about how digitization can help us protect and renovate our built spaces. Josh Giegel of Virgin Hyperloop shared progress on the first truly new form of transportation in a century. And Allison Scott shared how the Autodesk Construction Cloud will connect every part of the construction process, from design and planning to construction and operations, keeping data at the center of the process every step of the way.
Later, at the Design & Manufacturing Keynote, Greg Fallon and Andrew Anagnost shared an exciting new partnership with ANSYS. Their simulation expertise will help propel generative design technology to the next level. And we learned about new features and advances in both Inventor and Fusion 360 that can help make more informed decisions and design with better insight.
The Peace, Love, and Sustainability Design Slam sponsored by Lenovo was a total blast—competitors put their Dynamo and Fusion skills to the test to design the music festival of the future—one that’s as sustainable as it is fun.
And it’s not over yet. Today brings more connection, more classes, and the closing night Block Party on the LINQ Promenade.
