Autodesk will run the Digital Prototyping Forum 2011 at at Villa Park in Birmingham on 2 November 2011. The forum provides users with the opportunity for free training on the latest Autodesk products, including the new Autodesk Product Design Suite and Autodesk Factory Design Suite 2012, with invaluable tips and tricks to help attendees get the most out of using the software in their day-to-day work.
Richard Tinsdeall, Sales Director for Northern Europe, Manufacturing, at Autodesk, states: "Autodesk experts will deliver insights covering everything from how to work effectively with large assemblies to how to create drawings more quickly and common pitfalls to avoid in the design process.
"The forum will also give them the opportunity to find out more about the new 2012 manufacturing software portfolio from Autodesk, including the new Autodesk Product Design Suite that makes design, visualisation and simulation software easier to adopt, use and maintain, and Autodesk Factory Design Suite 2012, a factory layout and optimisation solution that helps manufacturers make better layout decisions through the creation of a digital factory model, helping save time and money.
"We also aim to show them other solutions that they might not have considered before, or even been aware of, that might help them do their work more productively. The forum also provides an opportunity for delegates to meet and network with other users and to learn from their peers.
"This is a 'must-attend' event for our customers in the manufacturing and mechanical design sectors. And we are confident that every CAD manager or user attending will come away feeling it was time well spent."
Digital design workflows
The event will feature an in-depth product session for all delegates in the morning showing complete digital design workflows from initial layout to finished product, using the new Autodesk Product Design and Factory Design Suites. Customers will also be given an insight into solutions from which they might benefit but which they may not have previously considered. In the afternoon, the highlight will be four separate breakout sessions covering:
- Autodesk Inventor tips and tricks
- Simulation and analysis featuring Autodesk Simulation and Autodesk Moldflow
- Data management incorporating Autodesk Vault
- Industrial design including Autodesk Alias
The event will also host a small exhibition featuring a range of Autodesk products and related hardware and software, from graphics cards to Autodesk Inventor add-ons.
