Hello   SPARView readers!

Just a few   hours ago, Autodesk debuted Project Memento, a new software that creates   hi-res, watertight meshes with massive datasets for 3D printing and other   applications for the AEC market’s building information modeling (BIM) sector.

Need more proof of Autodesk’s plans for 3D printing? Check this out: the 3D   design and engineering giant is now bundling a one-year premium membership of   its 123D software suite with a MakerBot Replicator 2 desktop 3D printer to   create a “personal design factory.” The cost is $2,249.   .
