Autodesk On the Job – The Carousel Works (Video Series)

Using Autodesk’s Product Design Suite
Combining Old School Craftsmanship with Leading Edge Technology


The Carousel Works, located in Mansfield, Ohio, is the world’s largest manufacturer of wooden carousels.   These artistically functional equestrian masterpieces made their first U.S. appearance during the 1840s when the modern carousel was patented by Franz Wiesenhoffer in Hessvile, Ohio – just sixteen miles from the Carousel Works plant.   Since then carousels have been almost exclusively hand crafted and marketed using carved models and pictures.   But that recently changed when Carousel Works adopted Autodesk’s Product Design Suite and leapt from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century to combine old world craftsmanship with state-of-the-art digital prototyping.
