October 2013: Carducci Dual Sport founder and president Jim Carducci leveraged Autodesk Product Design Suite to develop a dream and convert a Harley-Davidson Sportster into an on-road/off-road motorcycle. Carducci’s conversion kit keeps passionate Harley fans from having to choose between a street-legal bike and an off-road bike.

November 2013: Autodesk chose Karcher North America, a leading provider of consumer, commercial and industrial cleaning equipment, for using Autodesk Product Design Suite to design the LANDA ECOS: a mobile “wash and reclaim” system.

December 2013: Asius Technologies and founder Stephen Ambrose were recognized for developing the Ambrose Diaphonic Ear Lens (ADEL): a new type of earpiece that solves the problem of hearing loss resulting from repeated earbud use. This pioneering creation was designed with the use of Autodesk Product Design Suite software.
