imageSean Dotson’s Sarasota based engineering company RND Automation & Engineering, has developed some amazing machinery for it’s clients. In March of 2010, RND was named Autodesk’s Inventor of the Month for its Digital prototyping work with Autodesk Inventor Software.

Autodesk reviews the 12 winners of each year, and along with public voting, selects the best to be named Inventor of the Year. The RND Automation team took the 2010 competition by a landslide.

“Inventor software is helping RND bring the benefits of automation to clients in a broad array of industries,” said Robert “Buzz” Kross, senior vice president, Manufacturing Industry Group at Autodesk. “We join the Autodesk Manufacturing Community in congratulating RND for its standout application of Digital Prototyping software to surpass the competition with its custom machine designs.”

“My relationship with Autodesk goes back more than 13 years to the first days of Inventor Release 1.” noted Sean Dotson, RND Automation’s President. “It’s quite an honor to receive this award and to be recognized for our work.” .
