Autodesk, Inc, based in San Francisco, California, USA, has introduced Autodesk AI to enable intelligent assistance and generative capabilities. Autodesk AI is integrated into Autodesk products and is native to its Design and Make Platform.
“As the trusted technology partner for Design and Make industries, Autodesk sees AI as a way for our customers to tackle the challenges they face and turn them into opportunities,” stated Andrew Anagnost, president and Chief Executive Officer, Autodesk. “Autodesk AI is the assistant that lowers the learning curve for designers and engineers, supercharges their productivity, and accelerates innovation.”

“AI is the future of design and make, and Autodesk is pioneering this transition,” Anagnost shared. “We sit at the junction of many of the most creative and impactful industries in the world. We’ll continue to invest in AI because of its transformational potential to drive better outcomes for our customers’ businesses and the world.”
Autodesk AI is aiding customers in various fields – from constructing new buildings and highways to manufacturing products and smart devices, as well as creating media and entertainment content. These efforts are not just about enhancing productivity, but aim to allow customers to become more creativity.
In the forthcoming 2024 State of Design and Make special report on AI, 77% of surveyed companies indicate plans to increase or significantly amplify their AI investments in the next three years. Among the leaders surveyed, 66% concur that AI will be essential in two or three years.
“With a commitment to security and ethical AI practices, we’re focused on delivering responsible AI solutions that address our customers’ needs,” Raji Arasu, Chief Technology Officer, Autodesk, commented. “Autodesk AI will continue to surface across the Autodesk platform–both in our existing products and our industry clouds–to enable better ways of designing and making.”
Autodesk AI is integrated throughout the Autodesk portfolio, with ongoing development of new capabilities. It enhances creative exploration and problem-solving, automates repetitive tasks to reduce errors and save time, and analyses complex project data to provide predictive insights.
For product design and manufacturing, Autodesk AI:
- Generative AI capabilities, enabled by Blank.AI, will enable conceptual design exploration for the automotive industry, leading to accelerated outcomes and 3D models that can be rapidly created, explored, and edited in real time using semantic controls and natural language
- In Autodesk Fusion, customers can automatically generate product designs that are optimised for manufacturing method, performance, cost, and more
- Fusion workflows are also being developed to enable automated creation of templatised Computer-Aided Manufacturing toolpaths that can be adjusted by the user as needed
- Automated drawings will provide interactive experiences around sheet creation, view placement, and annotation workflows
