This class will showcase examples of combining emergent technology with Autodesk, Inc.’s, suite of products to create innovative workflows within the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. Learn how we’re moving away from just design and document, and moving toward a series of workflows that empower ideas, enable optimization, and create stakeholder engagement through digital and tactile experiences. See examples, such as how to go from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) data capture through to an analytical model for simulations using ReCap software, ReMake software, SimTools software, and Autodesk CFD software (formerly known as Simulation CFD software). Learn about developing virtual reality / augmented reality simulations using 3ds Max software and Stingray game engine. And discover using Fusion 360 software and 3D printing as mediums for crossing technical knowledge barriers. All this and more without writing a single line of code—thanks to the seamless workflows across the Autodesk products! This session features Autodesk ReMake and SimStudio. AIA Approved
- Gain insight into Autodesk product workflows
- See real-world examples of emergent technology in the AEC industry
- Learn how we’re crossing the boundaries of industries to provide innovative solutions
- Discuss how emergent technology will change how we imagine, design, and learn how to create
Simon Yorke is an advanced design technologist for Aurecon, a global consulting, engineering, management, and specialist technical services firm. He’s also the founder of YORKE Labs, an experimental digital design, fabrication, and prototyping workshop. Yorke is a designer, modeler, simulator, maker, and futurist with a passion for good design and advanced use of emergent technologies. For the last 12 years, Yorke’s work has focused on identifying and integrating intelligent design and simulation tools into the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. An early adopter of parametric modeling in the structural and infrastructure sectors, he then started exploring computational-design workflows for the integration of optimization, analysis, and simulation tools in digital design. Yorke has developed a number of advanced approaches and streamlined workflows, from the reality-capture technologies of photogrammetry, laser scanning, and unmanned aerial vehicles, through to virtual reality / augmented reality simulators for stakeholder digital-design engagement.
