The Future of Making Things

Autodesk is already a global leader within 3D design programming, but we often talk about The Future of Making Things. And what assumptions and needs will govern tomorrow’s market. And which demands will be made by future customers.

New opportunities with
the technology of the future

The future is, to a certain extent, already here. All over the world heat exchangers, cars and even entire concrete buildings are being printed in quantities of up to 10 a day using a single 3D printer. The Chinese Broad Group has built a 30-storey hotel in just 15 days. 360 hours. What could we achieve in that time?

By eliminating the line between physical assumptions and digital possibilities, we open the doors to a completely new reality. We are looking at a pioneering technological development in which virtual companies with employees spread all over the world are making the impossible possible.

Demand is changing – are you keeping up?

The products of the future place new demands on the way we think about design and construction.

We are also seeing a shift of power, where millennials, also called The Next Generation, are no longer just controlling demand, but also increasingly both design and construction. The consumer and end-user of the future will demand intelligent, durable, cost-efficient and individually adapted products at a fraction of the price they pay today. And it will soon be possible.

This is your and our reality. In order to survive we must innovate. The Future of Making Things is already here. What will happen on your market tomorrow

– The products of the future place new demands on the way we think about design and construction. We must risk allowing the software to take the role of designer and constructor. Only then can we compete on tomorrow’s market. Patrik Durvik, Distribution Manager UK, Ireland, Nordics & Baltics at Autodesk.
