      What is the future of making things?

      The future of making is here, bringing with it radical changes in the way things are designed, made, and used. It’s disrupting every industry: architecture, engineering, and construction; manufacturing; and media and entertainment. With the right knowledge and tools, this disruption is your opportunity.

      How is the world changing?

      Industries are converging, and they’re innovating more quickly. It’s apparent in the microfactories that mass-customize products for demanding consumers. Or the construction companies that manufacture their own prefabricated walls and ductwork. Or the media firms that take cues from the automotive industry and previsualize their entertainment properties.

      In the future, successful businesses will approach the ideas and practices of design-make-use in a new, dynamic way. The process of creation has evolved beyond a simple linear path into integrated cycles of input and feedback.

      make

      use

      Collaboration

      Virtual teams with global expertise and skills are replacing local teams.

      Capital

      Democratized funding is leveling the playing field for marketable ideas.

      Computing

      Vast amounts of data and computing power are available anytime, anywhere thanks to the cloud.

      Production

      Advanced manufacturing methods and prefabrication are hastening speed to market.

      Access

      Microfactories are replacing traditional production facilities, enabling startups to compete with large corporations.

      Consumers

      Today’s buyers demand more personal, customized products—and they want them quickly.

      Interrelated objects

      Digital systems are being integrated with physical objects, making them connected and intelligent.

      Sensors

      Places, things, and media are collecting and communicating data points by the billions.

      Feedback loop

      Connected structures and products respond to user data and provide insights for improvements.

      Why did this industry disruption happen?

      Today’s dominant technology trends—cloud computing, mobile technology, social connection, and collaboration—are driving businesses and consumers alike to explore profoundly different ways to design, make, and use things. This kind of industry transformation has happened before, but the pace of change is now much faster. In today’s competitive landscape, anyone can be an innovator—and it’s all about who innovates first.

      Era of optimization

      3D modeling brought simulation and analysis into the design process, demonstrating how designs will work in reality so they can be optimized before they’re built.

      NOW AND INTO THE FUTURE

      Era of connection

      Our cloud-based design ecosystem is leading a new era of agile development with the computing power to support integrated processes and connect people and things.

      What's the way forward
      in the future of making things?

      Convergence. Integration. Connection. It's happening now, across industries. Are you a solo entrepreneur or part of a larger organization? It really doesn't matter. Technology gives startups the same shot at success as corporate giants.

      But you don't have to conquer a new way of working on your own. We can help you prepare your business to thrive in this era of disruption.
