Award-winning BIM implementation powers the design of the City Rail Link – New Zealand’s most ambitious infrastructure project

Creating a tunnel that connects the largest metropolis in New Zealand is no easy task. The logistics alone require an incredible amount of forethought and planning, and many would shy away from such a commitment. However, Link Alliance, an international…

How advanced space manufacturing brings the solar system within reach

When we talk about space exploration almost everything is a first. It’s easy to sound hyperbolic – the longest spacewalk, most time in space, first this, first that. But, it’s usually not exaggeration for impact. Almost everything that humankind does…

Innovative Panama Cruise Port wins AEC 2020 finalist recognition

Large infrastructure projects are always difficult to design and complete. There are multiple different stakeholders – from local planning boards and commissions to local businesses to the general public – that want a say in the design, how the space…

Elementum 3D on the advanced materials poised to revolutionize military manufacturing

Often discovery begets more discovery, creativity begets more creativity, and innovation begets more innovation. This is the premise of networking and cooperative business incubators. A great example would be the recent U.S. Air Force Advanced Manufacturing Olympics (AMO), which served…

Making PPE in Minutes is Possible with 3D Printing

In previous articles on GovDesignHub we’ve highlighted the military’s use of 3D printing to make portable runways, repair aircrafts, and maintain vehicles. We have often shared the possibilities that advanced manufacturing presents to our government agencies, however, it’s rare that…

3D printing optimizes the military supply chain

Following decades of continuous operations in multiple foreign countries, repairing key assets for military readiness is a major focus of today’s Department of Defense (DoD). But, when equipment breaks down and parts are difficult to find and expensive to produce,…

How bio-analytics and AI can transform product design and infrastructure

Our military provides countless examples of how bio-analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and a host of other advanced manufacturing technologies produce more advantageous situations for warfighters. We see better runways, cheaper and higher quality repairs, and prolonged life for machines as…

The Ultimate Guide to Autodesk Inventor

Autodesk Inventor is professional level CAD software used for product design and engineering, including 3D mechanical design, simulation, tool creation, and design communication. With Inventor, you can save time and expense when making products. The parametric Inventor 3D digital model…

Generative design’s windfall via AI

Humans are great. But humans aren’t terrifically suited to exploring every conceivable option in a matter of seconds when it comes to problem-solving. We are bound by our knowledge, experiences, energy, and time. AI, on the other hand, is only…

Getting the most out of your Autodesk University 2020 experience

In our last article on the GovDesignHub, we asked AEC and advanced manufacturing experts to weigh in on the upcoming Autodesk University (AU) conference. We asked a pool of eight digital design experts to project which trends and topics will…
