Fusion 360 Live Factory Experience

Each year, our team designs and develops a consumer product that we then fabricate live at Autodesk University. Attendees can explore our mini factory floor installation IRL and help build a product of their own to take home. This year’s experience focuses on plastic injection molding. Attendees will make plastic keypads by walking through the entire product development process.
