Normally at Autodesk University you attend to see and learn from great speakers, but in this case you get to make an awesome custom speaker. In the Product Innovation Platform track you will get to go through each step from the beginning electrical design in Autodesk Eagle to the product design and machining in Fusion 360 and at the end of the track you will get to assemble and take your custom CNC machined wood enclosure speaker. Here is a... Continue reading

There are several new buildings and upcoming designs that challenge the self imposed low key style of Portland Oregon, but that appears to be changing. Several of the designs being built on the Central Eastside push the architectural design and creative envelope. The building in this photo is named the Fair-Haired Dumbbell and was a crowd funded project by Gorilla Development. The location was once planned to be a Home Depot, but the 2008 recession changed those plans. Now the... Continue reading

Many Autodesk employees have been affected by the Northern California Wildfires, and a few friends and colleagues that have lost their homes. My heart and love flows out to everyone impacted by this fire as we try to help them. I used to live nearby the burn areas in Sonoma County, and can’t imagine the fear and loss people must be going through. I am now live about 700 miles North of the SF Bay area but if anyone needs...

Last week we flew a UAS (drone) over a old historic building being renovated in Portland Oregon. We captured 279 photos in two short 15 minute flights and automatically generated a 3D textured model and Ortho corrected TIFF files using Autodesk ReCap Photo. ReCap Photo has an entirely new engine and now expanded to 1000 images support as well as DEM file and Ortho TIFF file creation. If you have a land development or construction project, you should look into... Continue reading

Yes, Dam excited about this special Hoover Dam Field Trip and you can join us at Autodesk University 2017. Join the Dam tour and endure the long list of bad Dam puns I have, but it will be totally worth it to see such a monumental and iconic infrastructure project and learn how we digitally captured a large dam in 3D. The US Bureau of Reclamation and myself will be your safe, knowledgeable, and entertaining hosts on this special tour.... Continue reading

The Girls Generation robotics event was held this weekend and hosted by Catlin Gabel’s FIRST Robotics team 1540 Flaming Chickens of Portland Oregon. Several FIRST teams from around the Pacific Northwest brought their FIRST FRC robotics competition robots from last season to compete with only their girl team members participating. It was an amazing and inspiring event for all and especially younger girls watching the girls competing. The Red Alliance of teams 2811, 1540, and 753 won in the finals... Continue reading

Thanks for the comment Darren. I am well aware of what Mike Riddle did and discussed it with founders and ratiy programmers. None of Mike’s code actually made it into the first releasr of AutoCAD 86, but he certainly deserves credit for starting a basic vector program in assembly language that Autodesk acquired and then rewrote to became Autodesk’s AutoCAD. Pretty amazing to see how AutoCAD and Autodesk developed over history.

This is the 35th year of Autodesk and AutoCAD, and in the past year I have exchanged emails with the founder of Autodesk, John Walker. I asked John about the beginnings of Autodesk and also asked about what he sees in the future of technology given that he was at the beginning of the wave of PCs back in the 80s and took big risks on several early technology including one that became the most used CAD in the world...

For high school teams competing in FIRST Robotics FRC competitions this upcoming season, you should take advantage of the free Synthesis software developed by our 15 awesome high school interns (15 'Gracious Professionals') this year at the Autodesk Lake Oswego Oregon office. With Synthesis you will be able to import your robot 3D design, simulate testing the robot, testing the code, and practice driving the field. It is like a video game but your FRC team benefits before competition time... Continue reading

In just 56 days Autodesk University will begin, and on that very morning we will have the first official AU5K. I have ran with a growing group over the past few years. Last year we had 50+ attendees running in the morning to get some fresh air, see the Las Vegas strip without people and a sunrise, and to network. This is not a race, but a fun movement and something that should be at more conferences. You can walk,... Continue reading

Due to the computational power required, support, and other factors it will be cloud only. My experience has been fast cloud processing but I also have remote projects where I don’t have web access and have to process things later. There is an API on Forge too.

Autodesk ReMake is evolving to Autodesk ReCap Photo. Autodesk ReCap Photo will be part of ReCap Pro for both your LiDAR scan data and photogrammetry data. In addition to the great 3D mesh editing that was in the former ReMake, there are new features added like raising the limit of photos to 1000 photos and for creating 3D models and geolocated orthographic views from drone (UAS) imagery. All for a very low monthly subscription and well below other comparable solutions.... Continue reading
