Free Autodesk webcast – personal fabrication & sustainability!

Wednesday October 3, 12:00pm PST / 3:00pm EST

Join Autodesk "Maker Advocate" Jesse Harrington Au, and senior sustainable design program manager, Dawn Danby, as they discuss the manufacturing and sustainability implications and opportunities with the rise of personal fabrication. In today's world with easy-to-use software and 3D printing, everyone can be a maker. It also means that the need for mass production of wasteful items, such as disposal packaging, may be on decline. Join us for this lively discussion.

The Art Institute of Chicago – a Catch virtual tour!

Autodesk employee Cody Walker recently made a trip to The Art Institute of Chicago. He captured a good deal of it using Catch! These are really amazing - I think "The End of the Trail" might be my favorite.

So join me as we take a virtual tour of The Art Institute of Chicago! Click the links under the photos to be taken to the 123D Gallery so you can view the model in the 3D viewer. They look even better that way! He's also included more information about the pieces on the Gallery.
