The entire Spacemaker team would like to wish you Happy Holidays and a wonderful new year! It’s hard to believe that it’s already been over a year since Spacemaker joined the Autodesk family, and what a year it’s been! Much of our focus has really been about transitioning to being a part of an impressive global company, while maintaining our nimble, creative mentality. 

To reflect on the highlights, Autodesk’s Amy Bunszel caught up with Spacemaker’s co-founder, Carl Christensen. Be sure to take a look, and learn about our key product advancements, outcome-based design and how Spacemaker will integrate with Revit. Read the interview here. 

We also wanted to stop for a second and look back at the year that has been. We have managed to release an impressive 49 features to the product this year! Some of these are larger features such as the new navigation that happened this month, the introduction of Zones, the ability to add comments to your proposals, and a better way to Compare your proposal to each other! These 49 features are actually not including the countless smaller improvements that have been done to make Spacemaker easier and more efficient for you to use, such as several new tools and features that enable you to work more accurately in Design. 

We’ve included the full list of all the improvements we’ve made to the platform in 2021 just below. It’s worth a look! But if you would like to read more about each update then please check out the changes.spacemaker.ai (login required).
