Autodesk Gallery

CAD Panacea and other AutoCAD Blogger Council members have been invited to a special Autodesk event next week at the Autodesk offices at One Market in San Francisco. The content of this event has not been made fully available to us, so we are pretty excited to see what's in store.

Stay tuned for more information next week as it is revealed to us. Meanwhile if you are ever in the San Francisco area, we highly suggest taking the free tour of the Autodesk Gallery at One Market. There are many creative exhibits to view showing what imaginative designers are creating using the latest technology. I suspect we will get another opportunity to tour the Gallery again, which will be nice because the exhibits changes every so often. We'll leave you with some photos of past trips to One Market.

I was excited to be invited to the Autodesk Media Summit last week at the Autodesk Gallery at Market One, in San Francisco. I arrived on Monday evening, a little late for the pre-event get together hosted by TechSoft 3D. However, the next morning we met next door at the Autodesk Gallery for a light breakfast and then quickly got started with the main event – a live webcast to introduce the Autodesk 2013 product line

Users from all over tuned in via the Autodesk facebook page, while about 90 of us watched it live in person. I am sure we were burning up the Autodesk_Guest WiFi with all the live blog posts and tweets being sent out from the event. Carl Bass, President and Chief Executive Officer (@carlbass), led off the event by discussing how Autodesk received grief for predicting 10% growth last year. They ended up at 14% growth. Some of the interesting facts mentioned: 75% of Autodesk’s business is from outside the United States; in the past 30 years, AutoCAD has built a user base of about 12 million (legal) users, while the cloud based product AutoCAD WS has built a user base of over 7 million in only 2 years, with drawing uploads to AutoCAD WS over 300,000 per week.

Tomorrow is the Autodesk webcast to "learn about updates to Autodesk’s portfolio of design software for the AEC, manufacturing and general design industries.", presented by Autodesk CEO Carl Bass, and Senior VP Amar Hanspal. I will be a guest of Autodesk at the Autodesk Gallery (seen below) in San Francisco, the location of this live webcast.
