Autodesk didn’t just acquire Instructables, their CEO is publicly celebrating the maker movement, TechShops and more…
This Saturday, September 24th, Autodesk CEO Carl Bass will speak at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the San Jose opening of TechShop, the world’s first and largest membership-based, do-it-yourself workshop and fabrication studio.
TechShop offers building and creating opportunities to individuals who don’t have the space or funds to purchase expensive building tools. Autodesk’s Carl Bass who is a maker himself, and has always had a great affinity for communities that want to design and create things, will be on site on Saturday to speak with attendees about the value that TechShop’s accessible services will offer the South Bay. Autodesk supplies its powerful 3D design and engineering software to TechShop locations around the country to give inventors the tools they need to create the next industrial revolution.
