Two of my amazingly talented Autodesk Office of the CTO colleagues Evan Atherton & Heather Kerrick presented a 3D printed creative memorial plaque to the US Navy & Marines crew and Captain Robert A Hall. Jr. of the USS America LHA 6 last night in the Autodesk Gallery. The plaque had a 3D print of the starboard side of the ship mounted on a walnut wood base with custom metal standoffs mounting glass etched with text and 2D wireframe drawing of the new ship. The USS America is officially being commissioned tomorrow in San Francisco. The USS America was designed using Autodesk's AutoCAD and SSI's ShipConstructor software technology.
I too had the honor to meet the crew and Captain Hall last night.
