Today at its first Autodesk University (AU) ASEAN event, the leader in 3D design software put the spotlight on disruptive trends and advanced technologies shaping the "The Future of Making Things". The event convened nearly 800 architecture, engineering, manufacturing and entertainment industry professionals from 11 countries at Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre.

In his opening remarks, Guest of Honor, Dr. Pichet Durongkaveroj, Minister of Science and Technology, highlighted the recent Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)between the National Science and Technology Development Association's (NSTDA) and Autodesk to jointly establish a "Digital Manufacturing Platform." This collaboration aims to supports the National Digital Economy Master Plan, and provide up to 100,000 engineers and vocational professionals subscription-based access to Autodesk's technology, services and training for three years.

Autodesk also demonstrated how Thai companies are leveraging 3D design, engineering and fabrication software to take advantage of the Internet of Things (IOT), augmented and virtual reality, robotics, additive manufacturing and other emerging technology trends to thrive and win.

"Places and things are more connected, intelligent and dynamic than ever before, and companies need to radically rethink how they design and make things. AU ASEAN dives deep into these trends, and explores how companies can leverage 3D design technology to innovate and win," said Rama Tiwari, Regional Director of Sales, Autodesk ASEAN.

Autodesk Moves from Suites to Industry Collections

At AU ASEAN, Autodesk unveiled plans to introduce new Autodesk Industry Collections on August 1, 2016. The 3D design software leader will condense its seven Autodesk Design & Creation Suites into three core collections, and provide customers with a convenient way to access a wide selection of the most essential Autodesk software for their profession, along with cloud services, and flexible purchase options.

The new Autodesk Industry Collections are:
· Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) Collection, an essential BIM package for building, civil infrastructure, and construction
· Product Design Collection, comprising design and engineering tools for product and factory design
· Media & Entertainment Collection, the complete 3D animation toolset for visual effects artists and game developers

"With Industry Collections, we are offering a very competitive price point and making it far easier for customers to access a wide collection of the most essential Autodesk software and services in one package," Tiwari added.

Next Generation Technology Showcase

A big draw at AU ASEAN was the Autodesk Gallery, where exhibits explored the Future of Making Things and showcased pioneering design and inventive engineering. From 3D printed apparel from Nervous System and Nike, to the future of aerospace design with Airbus, attendees explored unlimited creative design possibilities using Autodesk products.

The design software leader also displayed how virtual reality (VR) is transforming enterprises in three core industries:
· Architecture and construction: Using VR viewers to experience realistic stereo-panoramas of building interiors
· Manufacturing: Leveraging the power of VRED in the automotive product development flow to improve engineering accuracy and engage customers in sales and marketing
· Media & Entertainment: How Stingray makes it easier for digital artists, creative directors and developers to build their 3D content, and achieve the exact look and feel of their game.
