Autodesk Looks Back at 2013 and the Power of Design

Autodesk Country Manager for the Philippines, Teddy Tiu, looked back at what Autodesk's 2013 was and shared his insights for the year 2014 during the media briefing.

Now that 2014 is already here, Autodesk, one of the world leaders when it comes to 3D design software, looks back at the year that was and shares its forecast regarding the design industry.

2013 saw the new look of Autodesk, and it goes beyond its aesthetic value and appeal. Designers from Autodesk drew inspiration in origami, which aptly juxtaposes art and science, form and function – all of which converge to effectively represent Autodesk’s software portfolio and the evolution of the company’s business.

Autodesk also launched its rental plans, which allows customers to purchase access to a range of Autodesk software on a monthly, quarterly or, annual basis. This allows customers flexibility when it comes to software licenses.

2013 also gave the opportunity for Autodesk to aid local designers from the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) sector via the first AEC Conference in Manila. The day-long conference discussed the current industry trends, challenges, and the infrastructure opportunities in Philippines. Autodesk also formed a strategic partnership with Convergence Inc. which armed industry practitioners with the company’s digital prototyping solutions.

Autodesk continues its winning streak at the Academy Awards’ Best Visual Effects Category via the movie Life of Pi.

The Philippines’ Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) has partnered with Autodesk, Inc. to advance the learning environment in the Philippine technical vocational education and training institutions through the use of Autodesk design software.

Aside from these, Autodesk has made considerable contributions in revolutionizing various processes through the design capabilities it provides. Autodesk is also involved in city planning and development, prosthetics manufacturing, helped enable manufacturing in space, and even helped preserve cultural heritage, among others.

With these, Autodesk is optimistic that the design industry is bound to get bigger – and design practitioners, along with the community, can expect that Autodesk will be there to arm them with the high-quality tools and help them create a better world.
