Autodesk should use some of the features here to fix their "Inventor" software package. It has to be one of the hardest programs to draw 3D parts in. Solidworks still has them beat in that department.  

With so much software, it's time Autodesk consolidates too.

I agree, Greg. It's a great starting point for students and a smart move by Autodesk.

Interesting article.  While these basic primitive shapes in 123D are not suited for complex surfacing design, this looks like a fun app to teach newcomers about modeling in 3D.

Cabe, this is an interesting application.  Getting this kind of software into lots of hands will definately accelerate the acceptance of this kind of design and manufacture.  It is interesting that so much can be done with 3D printing.  That area is moving fast.  Perhaps we are seeing the begining of customized, or mass customization, manufacture as oppossed to mass production.

Nice article, Cabe. The video really makes the concept come to life. You mentioned in the article that this is also aimed at do-it-yourselfers. Does Audodesk have a discounted version (perhaps a cloud-based system) for this app?

Just how far has handheld gaming technology come? Let's take a look inside the Nintendo 3DS XL and find out.
Design, simulation, manufacturability, and prototyping: All of these phases are being pushed forward and progressively by underlying technologies.
Wal-Mart will hold its second Made in the USA Open Call July 7-8, at its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. The event will be a repeat effort by the world’s biggest seller of consumer goods to increase the amount of US-made products it sells in Wal-Mart stores, in Sam’s Club members-only wholesale outlets, and on walmart.com.
From design feasibility, to development, to production, having the right information to make good decisions can ultimately keep a product from failing validation. The key is highly focused information that doesn’t come from conventional, statistics-based tests but from accelerated stress testing.
There’s a good chance that a few of the things mentioned here won't fully come to fruition in 2015 but rather much later down the line. However, as Malcolm X once said, "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."
