Industrial Additive MFG and the Third Industrial Revolution

by Matt Lemay, Enterprise Solutions Champion on November 11, 2016

“The Digitization of Manufacturing is the breaking wave of technological change that is ending industrial production as we know it. Two words to remember: Additive Manufacturing. A new industrial era, which The Economist describes as the Third Industrial Revolution is under way.”

Many of the world’s most innovative Manufacturers are already starting to yield unprecedented product improvements by adopting Industrial Additive MFG:

Airbus A320 Generative Design: Airbus used Generative Design and Additive MFG to create a next-generation A320 cabin partition which is 45% lighter than conventional designs, yet stronger. Saving the Carbon Dioxide emissions equivalent of 96,000 passenger cars off the road each year.

Autodesk Enterprise Priority is developing new initiatives to help Enterprise Manufacturers thrive by mastering Industrial Additive Manufacturing. These initiatives are meant to be comprehensive, flexible, and end-to-end partnerships that guide Manufacturers to success.

If you have any interest in learning how these initiatives can help you succeed in the Third Industrial Revolution, contact our Enterprise Solutions Champions.
