Autodesk showcases 'Future of Making Things'

DUBAI, December 18, 2015

Autodesk, a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, showcased the 'Future of Making Things' at its fourth edition of Autodesk University Extension Dubai (AUx) at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
 
The company highlighted a number of advances toward the future of making things and also showcased new technologies and modes of work that will help attendees navigate and thrive in this shifting landscape, said a statement.
 
The theme for this year’s edition, ‘Insight, Innovation, Inspiration,’ attracted more than 800 of the region’s top design and engineering professionals, who had the opportunity for a unique hands-on experience exploring advanced technologies and the future of design and engineering. 
 
The one-day interactive conference and exhibition featured the latest ground-breaking trends and a look at Autodesk's latest product offerings.
 
Louay Dahmash, head of Autodesk Middle East, said: “Technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), augmented and virtual reality and robotics will change the way engineers and designers work. Places and things are more connected, intelligent and dynamic than ever before.
 
“Autodesk is taking the lead in the global revolution of the ‘Future of Making Things.’ Our event is timely and strategic as there are countless ambitious and futuristic projects underway across the Middle East.”
 
This year’s event threw special focus on design and how it helps shape the world - from the buildings we live and work in, to the machines that propel us forward and the products that enrich our lives. 
 
A key attraction was the ‘Autodesk Gallery,’ that showcased unique exhibits, including Nike’s 3D printed shoe, Airbus’ 3D printed concept plane, Soccket - the energy-harnessing soccer ball, a 3D printed nylon dress, and many more. 
 
AUx Dubai 2015 also served as a forum for design and engineering professionals to upgrade and validate their skills by obtaining Autodesk Certifications at the event, as well as connecting with peers and experts.
 
“We are proud to host the fourth edition of AU extension Dubai 2015, which has been designed specifically for those who design, build, make and create," said Dahmash.
 
"For the last few years, AUx Dubai has positioned itself not only as a unique learning and networking event but also as a strategic venue where attendees can talk about technology disruption, changing demands of customers, and new ways to design and bring products to market,” he said.
 
The event was organised in co-operation with Omnix International, the Mena (Middle East and North Africa) region’s leading provider of computer aided engineering solutions, and endorsed by IT brands like HP, AMD, Aruba and Panzura.
