Today, building design decisions are not informed by what can be made. Construction processes are iterative, manual, slow, and reactive, with high risk and uncertainty. Data and tools are disconnected and don’t allow processes to work at scale. In this session I'll go over our Manufacturing Informed Design project and how it brings together our portfolio to inform the design process as early as possible and how the Forge API we are developing for this will enable our customers and partners to extend our solution. The Manufacturing Informed Design API will be a simple way for customers to publish product templates from Inventor into Construction Cloud or Fusion Team, discover those Product Templates via the API or Revit and customize and insert variants from a simple API. I will also cover how we are extending the Forge Viewer for simple, low/no code configuration workflows.
Whether it's being used in rapid prototyping and consumer products or small-run manufacturing, 3D printing has become an important part of the workflows of many hobbyists, artists, engineers, and fabrication companies. This course will look at the landscape of the 3D printing industry in order to break through the hype that surrounds it. You will discover how 3D printing is being used in the real world for both personal and professional uses. From creating art to engineering prototypes, this course will also explore the expanding use of 3D printers and their place in an enhanced design workflow. The course discusses the current state and future implications of 3D printing in the real world.
