Description

Celebrate MFG Day 2018 by joining us for a tour of the Autodesk Pier 9 Technology Center - San Francisco!

You will get a peek behind the curtain into how Autodesk is exploring the future of manufacturing, testing ideas, and collaborating with industry and academia around the idea of the configurable microfactory.

Whether you work in academia, industry or in an advanced startup, or are just curious to learn about advanced manufacturing, robotics and the microfactory of the future, join us at Autodesk's San Francisco facility on Pier 9 for an hour-long tour. You will hear stories, see artifacts and the machines that make them - advanced manufacturing equipment and robotics, and engage in dialog with the community of Autodeskers and residents.

The Autodesk Technology Centers collaborate with industry, academic, and entrepreneurial communities to speculate, validate, and test ideas about the future, and includes Technology Centers in Boston, San Francisco, and Toronto, each wiht a vibrant community of residents who use the facilities and have access to specific resources to support project needs.
