Help Shape the Future of Digital Fabrication
This year, Autodesk University attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an important new initiative dedicated to helping define the trends that are shaping some of the latest advancements in the building product and fabrication industry.
The building product and fabrication industry is accelerating its use of BIM (Building Information Modeling) and Digital Prototyping processes to deliver better predictability and control, from design though fabrication. Advancements in technology are allowing companies to greatly improve productivity, better manage change throughout a project’s lifecycle, and create truly innovative buildings.
With this change, a new industry trend is emerging – Digital Fabrication. As BIM and Digital Prototyping increasingly drive the development of Digital Fabrication, the roles of both designers and fabricators will change dramatically.
Autodesk is kicking off a long-term customer research program at this year’s Autodesk University focused around the needs of Digital Fabrication customers. The goal of this program is to better understand the workflows and tools designers and fabricators employ to drive successful projects that leverage BIM and the custom fabrication of building components.
If you have a desire to make a difference, and have experience in driving building fabrication or building components into building design, we’d like to hear from you. To take part in this important effort, either while attending Autodesk University or in the future, please complete this short application no later than Friday, November 21, 2008.
We’ll be contacting successful applicants in the coming weeks with more details about this important initiative.
We thank you for your time, and look forward to working with you.
The Autodesk Digital Fabrication Team
