Autodesk University 2013

First impressions of edddison at Autodesk University 2013

AU 2013 Autodesk University

Every year at the beginning of December AU takes place in Las Vegas. This year at the strange Venetian Hotel. Strange from my perspective, seeing as I grew up 250 miles from the real Venetian.

The AU slogan is to learn from experts, get connected, and see the future.

We packed our bags and took the trip 6,000 miles to Las Vegas to show 7,000 attendees the brand new edddison solution. AU is a unique opportunity to meet an international community of architects, engineers, designers, and industrial and technological leaders at one place.

As Autodesk says on its website. Meet and talk with AU exhibitors. Come to the AU Exhibit Hall to try out new products; talk with hardware, software, and service vendors; and get answers from Autodesk employees. Experience the Gallery at AU, featuring products and technologies created by Autodesk customers. Connect with peers at evening receptions.


Exhibiting in the exhibition hall was ideal because it is perfect for presenting products and services in front of consumers and early adopters.

The photos below show a Navisworks scene controlled by an iPad and an edddison projection table. The second setup shows a SketchUp file controlled by a webcam, a 3D printed object, a 23 inch touchscreen and a Nexus 7 Android tablet.

AU is over, but you can still watch, read and listen to classrooms online at http://au.autodesk.com/

edddison is an authoring tool for non-programmers to create interactive 3D applications. edddison offers a user interface for non-professionals, simplifies the navigation and handling of 3D models.

Unity3D 5.x or higher
Unreal Engine 4.15 or higher
Autodesk Navisworks Simulate and Manage 2015 or higher
Trimble SketchUp Pro and Make 2014 or higher (Desktop Versions)
Tecnomatix Plant Simulation 15.0 or higher

edddison works in a split screen mode, where the interface is separated from the 3D display, making navigation much easier. The usage of a floor plan helps users to avoid getting lost in virtual space.

No. You can present your project using a tablet, touchscreen or use your webcam and printed barcodes.

PC with Windows 10 or 11 + supported 3D software

End user: People who have no idea about to prepare a real-time 3D application. This user group are mainly managers, client, architects, designers, marketers, sales reps and they need tools to capture the attention of colleagues, managers, stakeholders and clients and get them involved in making decisions on the spot.
