Autodesk Portland Housewarming Event

This weekend Autodesk employees in the newly opened Portland office were invited with their families to enjoy a housewarming party and also have the opportunity to make a difference in the community.

Custom Espresso Tamper

Thanks to the kindness and concern for good coffee in the new Portland Autodesk office and an excellent excuse to make things, Hans Kellner Autodesk employee extraordinaire in Autodesk’s San Francisco office designed a custom espresso tamper. Hans designed the tamper using Fusion 360 and then machined it on a Haas CNC.

Now we have two new custom espresso tampers for our new Portland office’s espresso machine.
