AU5K Shirts

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 10:44:48 -0700

We may have tee-shirts for participants in the now official Autodesk University morning run/walks better known as the AU5K. I'm looking for great ideas on a shirt design that is witty and funny. The shirt should be worthy of being proudly worn at AU and maybe during the morning runs and when you return to your office to show off. I know we have very funny and creative readers, and perhaps you uncreative ones know a person you can hit...

Solve WiFi Range and Bandwidth Issues

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 20:42:21 -0700

I wanted to share this with readers that might have the same modern day issues. I recently moved into a new house and was battling getting WiFi throughout the house. The house is a 75 year old farmhouse and now renovated, but the layout is odd with many walls and a floor between the bedroom and all the way out to my home office. In the past I had tried the WiFi repeaters and had little success, other than lightening...

Autodesk This Week

My mother, daughter, and me at a Hood River lavender farm. The view looking down the huge Cape Kiwanda sand dune before our annual race to the bottom with my daughter.

Thinking Big with Generative Design

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 09:32:51 -0700

See how Stanley Black & Decker’s Breakthrough Innovation Group used generative design and additive manufacturing technologies in a pilot project to lightweight its crimping tool attachment part. The Power of Generative Design is coming to Autodesk Netfabb 2018 “The resulting generative design may look a bit unusual to some, but it reduced the hydraulic crimping attachment weight by just over 3lbs, or 60%. The simulations that were run concurrently showed that the tool maintained the strength characteristics of the original...

Kids at Autodesk Day

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 16:38:23 -0700

This has to be one of my favorite days of the year at the office, and I remember my grown children attending back in the San Rafael HQ office many years ago. Our employees bring their children in and each office organizes a series of activities. In our Lake Oswego, Oregon office (Portland), we held our Kids at Autodesk Day last Friday. The kids from young to older teenagers signed in and got their own Autodesk badges and then a...

Autodesk colleague Lizzie Bennett brought Jackson into the Autodesk office, because we love dogs at Autodesk. Jackson is a Corgi with a degenerative disease requiring him to use wheels for mobility. He is such a happy and energetic pup that loves to play fetch.

Generative Design for the Office Layout

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 15:04:03 -0700

Autodesk used Generative Design to define the optimal workspace in one of our offices. In the future we see design taking in the employee and organizational preferences in the office neighborhoods. Make sure those that work frequently together are located in close proximity, employees that like the sunny exposure are seated in sunny portions of the office, and the employees that prefer a quiet space are in planned quiet area neighborhoods of the office. Think of it like the design...
