FUTURE OF MAKING THINGS

THE FUTURE OF PRODUCT DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING

Manufacturers are under more pressure than ever to deliver better products faster, at lower cost, and with less waste. Let’s explore future manufacturing trends and technology that can help you succeed in this rapidly changing era of digital transformation.

Leading the way to the future of manufacturing

Autodesk is driving the development of future design and manufacturing technology to help you accelerate product development and deliver superior customer experiences.

  • GENERATIVE DESIGN

    Generate multiple CAD-ready solutions based on real-word manufacturing constraints. Our generative design technology enables you to incorporate materials, processes, costs, and other product requirements up front.

  • ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING

    Advanced manufacturing integrates new technology and techniques, like additive manufacturing, to optimize design and manufacturing processes and drive product innovation by making previously impossible designs possible.

  • CONNECTED DATA

    Hyper-connectivity is powering the future of making things. Autodesk enables teams to work from a common data environment that connects design and manufacturing workflows throughout the product lifecycle.

Design and manufacturing convergence

The “throw-it-over-the-wall” approach to product development worked well enough in the past. But to compete in the future, you’ll need to connect and automate design and manufacturing processes. Bringing the studio and shop floor together can reduce iterations and errors, enabling you to deliver better products faster.
