by ShannonMcGarry 5 years ago 1 min read

Another great Autodesk University has come to a close and this year was even bigger than we expected. It was exciting to meet so many of you for the first time and to see many of you again. In case you missed this year or just want to relive the week, check out some of the great things that happened this year!


Fusion 360 Meetup

This year’s Meetup was the biggest we have had thus far, with over 240 Fusion 360 folks in attendance to celebrate some of the most influential users in the Fusion 360 community.

Microsoft HoloLens + Fusion 360

A big surprise this year was our unveiling of Microsoft HoloLens with Fusion 360. We have built an interactive experience that we showed to several hundred customers to let them experience how an Industrial Designer and Mechanical Engineer can collaborate in a much more meaningful way. Check out more about Fusion 360 and HoloLens here.




Opening Keynote

As with every AU we bring some amazing innovators together to share their thoughts and stories. This year’s opening keynote address was by Carl Bass who helped us understand the key of innovation by “The Art of Reframing”. Andrew Macafee posed the question “What is the biggest story since human civilization began?” It might not be what you think.

Jeff Kowalski also welcomed us to the Augmented Age and the Future of Making Things, where design and data are helping us to push the boundaries of what’s possible in design. We are helping Airbus save a half a million metric tons of fuel, by implementing their new partitions through generative design and new 3d printing methods (by the way that’s the same amount that 94,000 cars produce every year). I highly suggest checking it out the recordings when they are posted.
