Autodesk is a world leader in 2D and 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software. Just like TED, technology, entertainment, and design are our focus, and our business.
Our products are specifically designed to assist and support the kind of inspired and innovative thinking displayed and celebrated at TED2009. Put simply, Autodesk software helps architects, designers, engineers, manufacturers, and digital artists design, visualize, and simulate their projects digitally; experience their ideas virtually; and empower them to design in better ways. Autodesk is proud to sponsor TED2009 and to continue to serve the great minds in attendance.
The ability to optimize designs digitally before they are built helps our customers avoid costly revisions later in the process while minimizing the need for physical prototypes. A clear, shared vision enables better collaboration, coordination, and communication between project stakeholders and teams, accelerating project cycles and time to market.
Across the globe, Autodesk products help more than 9 million users save time and money, design more sustainably, and transform how their ideas are brought to life. Only Autodesk offers its customers the depth and breadth of experience gleaned from supporting design professionals in virtually every aspect of the built world.
Whether the workflow involves Building Information Modeling (BIM) in architecture and construction, Digital Prototyping in automotive and manufacturing, or Digital Entertainment Creation in film and video games, Autodesk provides the software to enable faster, more efficient, and more iterative design processes. More than just providing a competitive advantage to its customers, Autodesk tools contribute to a better-designed world.
