    Happy new year everyone! We hope you all had a terrific holiday break. A few of us here in Portland, Oregon had a pretty exciting December. We finished up our UAV crowd source challenge with ADX Portland and Fusion 360 community member Stan Hisel. Two teams participated in a one-week challenge to design small, inexpensive, fixed wing unmanned aerial vehicles with the purpose of surveying wildlife preserves to help prevent poaching.  We're really excited to share with you how it went!

    This year’s AU started off with a quote from Alvin Toffler: “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” For those of us on the Fusion 360 team, we couldn’t agree more. Check out what went down in Vegas at this year's AU 2013.
