140 Years Next Week

Next week I will celebrate and reflect on 20 years working at Autodesk, or 140 in dog years due to our dog loving culture at Autodesk. I am going to gather up some of my fondest memories and accomplishments for a blog post next week. Autodesk has been a job that I only intended to do for two years then go back into a design seat, but I am still here for several reasons and my colleagues are like extended family.

If you have any photos or stories of me over the past 20 years as a desker, please Email Me.

Know a Kid?

If you know a kid, then you should also know Tinkercad. Tinkercad is free and browser based with nothing to install.

How to Get Involved in Autodesk Beta Testing

One of the ways to improve the Autodesk products you use is by getting actively involved in Autodesk beta testing in the Autodesk Feedback Community. Beta testing involves the early testing and providing feedback on unreleased versions of the software and is critical to improving the features and stability of Autodesk products.

What is Autodesk Forge

Forge is the future platform for Autodesk where all applications and services can use a common cloud based platform to view and extract your design data – and more. Several Autodesk and 3rd party applications have already made use of the benefits of this platform, but do you want to know more about Forge and what it offers?

Scott Sheppard wrote a nice overview with a diagram as well that explains the APIs and benefits of Forge.

Cooper the Puppy

I realized how much my 5-1/2 month old puppy had grown this weekend. Just 4 months ago you could carry the little furball in one hand at only 6 pounds. Cooper is a unique Golden Retriever that is slender build long skinny head, and has a deep reddish copper wavy fur.
