Editor's Note: Raindrops on laser cutters and whiskers on 3D printed kittens; bright copper shavings and warm welding mittens……..

The Novedge Team goes on a field trip to the Autodesk Pier 9 Workshop. These are just few of our favorite things (in no particular order).Lundberg Design - Autodesk 01 - Ryan Hughes

1) The Manhattan ProjectIMG_1044

This cocktail machine,  engineered, prototyped and entirely built at Pier 9, mixes a perfect Manhattan.  After 5 pm only.

2) The Hoverboard

It's 2015 and Autodesk delivers the first Hoverboard (all according to Back to the Future 2 plan). Just remember:  Hoverboard first , Manhattan Project after; never the other way around.

 4)The Artist in Residence Program

And not just that. We really had fun with Pier 9's structure and its nooks and bridges, masterfully  designed by  Architect Olle Lundberg

Check out the incredible collection of machines available in each shop: 

CNC Shop, 3D print Shop, Wood Shop, Metal Shop, Textile Shop, Electronics Lab and yes, even in the Test Kitchen!

Pier 9 was designed as a place to explore every stage of the process of making things, from idea to digital model to real-world physical product. In their state-of-the-art digital fabrication workshop, a community of technical experts and creative partners collaborate on projects that dissolve the boundaries between software and hardware.
