IMAG0473 After a broken A-300 and a lovely stay in Atlanta Airport, I’m in sunny downtown Portland, Oregon for Autodesk Manufacturing’s Tech Day. Upon arrival I was greeted by my friends in the industry: Al Dean and Martyn Day from Develop3D, Mark Flayler from ImaginIt, and Kenneth Wong from Desktop Engineering were there. Some others have already come in, but unfortunately have yet to find Deelip Menezes.

We are all here on invitation so that we would have the opportunity to see first hand what Autodesk Manufacturing has planned for the near future, and to get the inside track on what is really going on. This is a great opportunity to see my friends and some cool Autodesk staff members, and to start weaseling out details about my pet topics such as Fusion, Inventor Simulation, a little Algor, manufacturing topics, and on and on….

Heading out…
