On January 15 and 16, the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute (GTMI) and Autodesk hosted an event to help students learn how to use the company's software, Fusion360, and then design a product using it. Forty Georgia Tech students participated in the workshops and among them, seven teams came together to compete.

Team "D" composed of Georgia Tech students Neeraj Rao, Robert Lineberg and Siyao Cai won first place with their design, "RoboLeg 5000 - Function Aesthetic." Team "B" composed of Georgia Tech students Lance Lu, Danielle Rosenblatt and Andy Lee won second place with their design, "LDA Fusion Prosthetics." Members of the first place team each received an iPad2 and the members of the second place team each received a bluetooth speaker.

According to Jeff Smith, education program manager for Autodesk, there were four major elements considered in judging the entries:

  • Overall Design
  • Manufacturing feasibility
  • Ergonomics
  • Presentation/Communication/Fusion Model

Autodesk, Inc., is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Since its introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk continues to develop the broadest portfolio of 3D software for global markets. Fusion 360 is a 3D CAD/CAM, cloud-based tool.

The Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute brings together industry leaders, government partners and top researchers to collaborate and find solutions for the greatest challenges facing U.S. industry today: creating quality jobs, ensuring global competitiveness, and advancing economic and environmental sustainability.
