Day Two: Farnborough Airshow

Day two of the Farnborough Airshow continued as day one finished - very warm, lots of visitors and a great air display!

The Autodesk stand in Hall 1 was also very busy and was visited by manufacturers from the UK, France, Russia, Singapore (amongst others) all eager to see how our Digital Prototyping solutions could help them. We were able to tell them the story of one of our partners on the stand Envisage Group, who have designed a new concept of a first class seat using Autodesk Alias Design and Autodesk Inventor:

A visual of the chair was being displayed on a powerwall on the stand where visitors can visualise the new concept in a fully immersive 3D environment using Autodesk Showcase. With the aid of a pair of 3D glasses, visitors to the stand were wowed at the level of detail and realism they were able to experience.

The afternoon air display didn't fail to impress with the highlights being the F-22 Raptor and the fly past of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner accompanied by two Spitfires.
