The Transformation of Design
Technological change is disrupting how we design, create, and make. It might be AR, VR, or mixed reality turning design into an immersive and collaborative experience. And it might be generative design or machine learning helping us to create a better final result. Through it all, data is moving to the center of the process.

Hands-on with Project Rediscover: generatively designing Autodesk Toronto's office
Project Discover was the original project that launched Autodesk's work around Generative Design for AEC, leading to the creation of Project Refinery, an optimization engine for Dynamo. It involved the generative design of Autodesk's new office in the MaRS district of Toronto, a showcase for using Generative Design for architectural layout. While this project pre-dated the latest Autodesk tools in this space, Autodesk Research embarked on Project Rediscover to go back and retrofit the original approach to work with Dynamo and Refinery. This session takes a close look at the Project Rediscover graph - which is now publicly available for anyone to load inside Dynamo - and how people might use similar techniques to implement their own Generative Design workflows.
Advanced Data Visualization Using the Forge Viewer
Throughout the last decade, Autodesk Research has been developing advanced techniques for data visualization in a 3D environment. One example of this is Dasher 360, a Forge-based application that can display in a 3D context sensor data captured by sensors in buildings (or on infrastructure such as bridges). In recent months, we’ve been working to publish the core components that display this rich 3D data, for instance, to spatially locate sensors in a 3D model and to map large amounts of IoT (Internet of Things) sensor data to the surface of 3D objects via animated heat maps. This session focuses on how Forge developers can integrate these components into their own applications, delivering first-class visualizations of their customers’ data.
