When Professor Pallotta asked us if we wanted to go to Autodesk Gallery, I had close to no expectations going there. I did not know what was Autodesk, neither what they do. So, I decided to be a little curious and go out of my confort zone.
I cannot say that I was disapointed by the end result. I discovered a company that creates a lot, for the architecture, engineering, construction, manufacturing, media, education, and entertainment industries.
From 3D printing for a stadium to visual effects in a mass production movie, Autodesk does it all. I was amazed by such a diversity from one company and they are crushing it.
They helped producing the movie Avatar and Terminator Genesys. They built some king of smart sandbox that analyses the level of the field and adds colors regarding of said level. They helped creating a more immersive experience for a racing game. They built 3D models for a church and a stadium. They are most known for creating the software AutoCAD.
All of these accomplishments can be seen in the gallery that showcases a fraction of what they do. The headquarter of the company is located in San Rafael, California where they run most of the operations.
The gallery is located near the Embarcadero station, at One Market Street in San Francisco, California. We went with my group and we all loved the time spent there. It was an amazing experience for all of us seeing this amazing gallery.
In conclusion, we can say that Autodesk is one of the best place to be fulfilled if you to be challenged and do a lot of different things in the modelling industry.
