The Autodesk Gallery had an awesome display. I was impressed Carl Bass (right) was present whenever the exhibit hall was open, in 123D Catch, 123D Make cardboard cut-out form if not in person!
For lunch I tried & failed to meet the folks from the “BIM Connect Community!” (couldn’t find “the” table in the vastness, see below) but ended up sitting with an Automotive Designer from the U.K. and Infrastructure Engineer from California. It’s often the totally unplanned meetings like this which make AU interesting & worthwhile.
I spent the whole afternoon in a Design Computation Symposium which was just astonishing. Topics ranged from self sufficient buildings, 3D printing in zero gravity to a web service for genetic engineering!
It was followed by the Technology Main stage discussion which featured some cool near future technology but, to be honest, seemed a little bit staid after the astounding afternoon session. From there it was on to the AUGI Annual Beer Bust and another chance to see the exhibits while meeting up with friends old & new on the floor and AUGI stand (below).
