See real-world examples of emergent technology in the AEC industry
Learn how we’re crossing the boundaries of industries to provide innovative solutions
Discuss how emergent technology will change how we imagine, design, and learn how to create
This class will showcase examples of combining emergent technology with Autodesk, Inc.’s, suite of products to create innovative workflows within the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. Learn how we’re moving away from just design and document, and moving toward a series of workflows that empower ideas, enable optimization, and create stakeholder engagement through digital and tactile experiences. See examples, such as how to go from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) data capture through to an analytical model for simulations using ReCap software, ReMake software, SimTools software, and Autodesk CFD software (formerly known as Simulation CFD software). Learn about developing virtual reality / augmented reality simulations using 3ds Max software and Stingray game engine. And discover using Fusion 360 software and 3D printing as mediums for crossing technical knowledge barriers. All this and more without writing a single line of code—thanks to the seamless workflows across the Autodesk products! This session features Autodesk ReMake and SimStudio. AIA Approved
Open to anyone looking to push beyond the limits of the way we’ve worked in the past
Simon Yorke is an advanced design technologist for Aurecon, a global consulting, engineering, management, and specialist technical services firm. He’s also the founder of YORKE Labs, an experimental digital design, fabrication, and prototyping workshop. Yorke is a designer, modeler, simulator, maker, and futurist with a passion for good design and advanced use of emergent technologies. For the last 12 years, Yorke’s work has focused on identifying and integrating intelligent design and simulation tools into the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. An early adopter of parametric modeling in the structural and infrastructure sectors, he then started exploring computational-design workflows for the integration of optimization, analysis, and simulation tools in digital design. Yorke has developed a number of advanced approaches and streamlined workflows, from the reality-capture technologies of photogrammetry, laser scanning, and unmanned aerial vehicles, through to virtual reality / augmented reality simulators for stakeholder digital-design engagement.
Understand how to save time and money with improved accuracy and confidence from your site investigation efforts, allowing more time for design. Understand how to choose the best reality capture technology and workflow to capture the right site conditions for your design. Choose the best workflow based on your project limitations and how Autodesk applications like ReCap 360, ReMake and 123D as well as other Automated Feature Extraction applications like ClearEdge 3D can reduce the time it takes to get to BIM and design.
Today, ubiquitous sensors make it possible to digitize the real world around us. To do what, you ask?<br/><br/>We can digitize objects from the past for archiving purposes, digitize historic collections to enable universal access, monitor and protect natural landscapes or species and make education more fun! We can also digitize physical art for commercial purposes, digitize ourselves for fun or medical purposes, make realistic assets for games, film and exciting new interactive experiences that can augment the value of the captured reality.<br/><br/>How is that relevant to us designers, the makers of the future?<br/><br/>Join Tanja and Grant for a 1.5 hour lab session and learn how to use captured reality to start new designs and create 3d models in novel ways. We’ll cover how to create a 3D model by tracing over a digitized capture, how to create new designs using complex shapes made by nature as inspirations or as final parts in your designs, how to develop designs variations switching between physical and digital prototypes, how to make personalized accessories or medical equipment, or simply how to repair broken parts no longer available for sale …<br/><br/>With ReMake and Fusion360, we offer new exciting concept and design workflows – join us and learn how to do it all!
