What you can expect from product updates:
New Integrated Design Suites: Delivering valuable design, simulation, management, and visualization tools, the new family of design suites provides the most complete creation and production solutions available — at an exceptional value.
A Powerful Leap in Productivity: From simple changes like faster startup times and graphics acceleration to astonishing visualizations and an improved learning experience, you can get more done in less time.
Robust Analysis and Modeling Tools: Evaluate what you are creating before it gets built — from energy use and structural integrity to stress points and final assembly — to save time and money on costly changes.
Enhanced User Interfaces That Are Intuitive and Easy to Use: You will find new tools and enhancements this year, such as updated ribbon interfaces, quick access toolbars, direct object manipulation, a marking menu, highlighting, automation user interface, and many more. All of which make it easier to get from concept to creation.
Better Ways to Work Together: With accelerated timelines and dwindling budgets, coordination among all team members is critical. And Autodesk is making it easier, with improved visibility into projects, better collaboration tools, and easy-to-access design information. All of which helps you deliver projects that are on time and on budget.
As you saw on the schedule above, there are three industry sessions. The Business Session will be presented by Caesar Ruest, Jay Ayala and John Janzen. The Infrastructure Session will be presented by Pete Southwood, Steve Stamatoplos and Neal Niemec, and the Manufacturing Session will be presented by Daryl Corelli. Registration for this event is free and I would recommend registering as soon as possible to reserve your spot.
