With over thirty years behind us, we can’t help but have an opinion every once in a while. We thought it was time to share it with you and we want you to give us yours. We’ll be talking about the latest industry trends, tips and tricks, and best practices for the mechanical design and engineering community using Autodesk technology.

We’ve assembled a knowledgeable, curious, and fun team to post to this blog on a regular basis. You’ll hear from them on topics ranging from CAD to Simulation to Data Management and PLM. Topics that are relevant in the engineering room, on your shop floor, and throughout your enterprise.
