About this eBook

Autodesk established a network of technology centers to provide a unique Industry 4.0 experience for residency teams from various industries. DATRON CNC machines were part of the effort to provide rapid prototyping capabilities.

This eBook is both the case study and a reflection on that journey. We spoke to members of the Autodesk Technology Centers team to gain insights on why—and how—to set up in-house prototyping.

In addition to a behind-the-scenes look at how Autodesk established their residency program, this eBook features:

  • Practical tips on setting up prototyping in-house
  • 3 Autodesk Technology Center Resident Profiles
  • DATRON Prototyping Customer Profiles
  • How the two companies continue to build on the promise of Industry 4.0

DATRON hopes to equip the next generation of engineers, designers, and brands to push the industry’s potential.
