This article captures the highlights of the recent Autodesk University 2016, which continued with the theme of “The Future of Making Things” introduced last year, but which introduced some more AEC-specific technologies to look forward to, including Project Fractal, a generative design tool; Project IQ, which can mine construction data to show potential project risks; and Project Quantum, a cloud-based multi-disciplinary BIM tool that seems poised to become Autodesk’s next generation “post-Revit” technology. It also provides an overview of the award-winning projects executed using Autodesk’s solutions in its annual AEC Excellence Awards competition.
