Companies like SpaceX, Blue Origin, and Virgin Galactic all have something in common: disruption of the space travel and space cargo industries. How we ship things and people to outer space is a complex set of operations, and each of these companies is looking to do it cheaper, and, more importantly, lighter than anyone else. By shedding weight, the teams of engineers working on these spacecraft are also making space travel and shipping more attainable. In turn, their suppliers are also looking to adopt composite materials and manufacturing processes to ensure that all of the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have the parts they need, when they need them. In this class, we'll review how, with Autodesk software, you can learn how to make composite parts that may soon be in orbit.
- Understand the strengths and challenges of manufacturing with composite materials
- Learn the entire workflow for composite manufacturing using Autodesk software subscriptions
- Learn how to evaluate your shop floor and understand if you can adopt composite manufacturing techniques
- See a future in which you’re winning new business as part of the composite manufacturing supply chain
