This week Autodesk offices around the world are closed for an extended holiday break. I’m grateful for this additional time off at the end of a crazy year, as I’m sure all my Autodesk colleagues are.
My children are still in school until Wednesday lunchtime, so I’ve taken the chance to hit the slopes for a few days before heading back down for a quiet family Christmas. (We’ll be back up in the mountains afterwards, assuming we’re still able to ski then.)
As I’m largely at a loose end in the evening after coming back from the slopes, I did have a couple of quick posts to share before starting my break properly. Oh, and I’ve recorded some advance Floppy Fridays to go out over the break, so those will continue throughout.
The first post is about another robotically-constructed bridge project (meaning other than the MX3D bridge, which I’m closer to) that colleagues from the Autodesk Research Robotics Lab have engaged in – you may have seen the article on Redshift.
In any case, here’s a YouTube version of the project video:
It’s an interesting project, with more of a focus on collaboration between robots and humans, with robots performing the more mundane activities and master welders working on the higher-value tasks.
