AMEEconnect and Autodesk for product design

Recently, with the help of the guys from the Autodesk Developer Network, we built a prototype (in two days!) to show how AMEE could be used for product design. Check out this video of it in action.

We made an addin for Autodesk Inventor which hooks onto the material selection during part design, feeds it through AMEEconnect, and displays the resulting embodied carbon (and energy) in a dialog. It’s just a prototype, but it shows what’s possible!

Best of all, we’ve released the source code, so you can see for yourself how it works.
