Pune, May 28, 2019: Autodesk, the global leader in 3D Design technology, for the fifth consecutive year, successfully organized the Moldflow Summit, 2019 at Conrad Hotel, Pune on 28th May. The event saw participation from around 350 professionals in the manufacturing, automotive, plastic engineering industry and marquee Autodesk customers like Tata Motors, Tata Technologies, Mahindra & Mahindra, Bajaj Auto, Whirlpool, LG, IFB, Schneider Electric, DuPont, Indo German Tool Room (IGTR) among others. The event showcased the success stories of some customers along with Moldflow in the 4th industrial revolution, its new features of and the related R&D.

In his keynote address, Mr. Mike Malkin Sr. Director, Global Sales – Autodesk Inc, discussed how automation will enable us to do more, do it better, and do it with less – less time, resource and negative impact on the world we live in. Autodesk, is already aligned with these new paradigms. And it is doing so by leveraging the power of Cloud and Digital, to enable better Planning, improved Design and greater Productivity. He further spoke about Autodesk enabling the uptake of new-age concepts like Generative Design in Automotive and Manufacturing sector.

A key highlight at the event this year was an interactive session on Generative Design in action, one of the latest innovations from Autodesk for Indian customers. This session was presented by Mark Hennebicque, Simulation Business Line Manager, Autodesk Inc. Generative Design mimics nature’s approach to design, itlets users create highly optimized designs that meet predetermined goals and constraints. Machine-learning algorithms in computers detect patterns inherent in millions of 3D models and generate taxonomies/ thousands of design options, without intervention by humans.  With the computer working in a lifelike manner to solve problems, designers can focus on the intention of their design—what they are trying to achieve—while the computer uses everything it knows to provide them with the best solution.


Global automaker  General Motors – Autodesk’s customer, took a big leap forward in automotive design to imagine a future of lighter, more efficient, and customizable cars. Using generative design powered by artificial intelligence and cloud computing, GM explored arrays of design solutions for parts and components of vehicles. With additive manufacturing, the company is affordably and efficiently making complex parts and unique components to customize vehicles. Together, these technologies are helping GM deliver better performance and more options than ever to customers.
