The Power Behind
Generative Design

Autodesk has relied on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and NVIDIA to help power generative design in Fusion 360 from its inception. Together they allow Autodesk to deliver a proven, high performance GPU-accelerated cloud infrastructure which provides the most sophisticated compute resources available today. Users can run hundreds of simulations in hours, instead of requiring days or weeks.
