A road trip like no other

Everyone has a story to tell. And we are traveling across America to share them with the world.

100+ scheduled stops. 8 months. 1 writer. A million stories.
Welcome to the Autodesk 3DRV road tour.

Led by TJ McCue, host, writer, and 3D enthusiast, the 3DRV tour is exploring the cities, towns and off-the-path byways to uncover a fundamental change in the way things are designed and made, and how this is bringing radical change to business and to society at large.

At each waypoint, we are celebrating the creative process, while illuminating the impact of design through firsthand customer stories, consumer creativity and student innovations. We hope you join us on this journey, meet up with the RV when we're in your area, or even suggest a stopover for us. See you soon.
