Autodesk's $100m fund to support Dubai 3D printing. Dubai Future Foundation will work with US-headquartered Autodesk to fulfil the emirate's 3D printing initiatives. The organisations signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that tasks the Foundation with identifying investment channels for Autodesk's $100m (AED367.3m) Spark investment fund for the region. It is hoped that the investments will benefit businesses relying on 3D printing in their operations and boost the region's 3D printing startups. Under the MoU, Autodesk is charged with evaluating innovation in the regional 3D printing sector to map out a strategy for its Spark fund.
