Autodesk and Coral Maker Collaborate to Help Save the Coral Reefs

Coral reefs, vibrant and diverse marine ecosystems teeming with life, face grave danger due to climate change and marine pollution. There is a need to ramp up the restoration and conservation efforts. In response, Autodesk and Coral Maker have teamed up to save the coral reefs.

Coral Maker, an Australian nature tech company, is using advanced manufacturing technology to restore coral reefs, while Autodesk is providing pro bono support and additional technological assistance. They aim to speed up coral restoration with unparalleled precision and effectiveness

“The partnership with Autodesk has empowered us to develop new technologies to restore reefs at a rate that was unimaginable a few years ago,” said Dr. Taryn Foster, Founder of Coral Maker.

Let’s look at how Autodesk’s design tools and expertise will help Coral Maker restore 100 hectares of coral reefs annually and make a remarkable impact on the revitalization of these invaluable ecosystems!

A team effort to save the coral reefs

Coral Maker used advanced manufacturing tools and recycled stone waste from construction to create something called skeletons. These essentially serve as beds on which corals are carefully placed, providing a thriving environment for their growth and development. The skeletons are placed in ideal waters, allowing the coral to fuse with them and mature into adult corals within 12 to 24 months.

Autodesk and its tools play a massive role in the entire process. Fusion 360 is used to design and prototype skeletons, and seed trays, and provide modifications that can transform masonry machines into skeleton manufacturers. AI-guided robotic arms facilitate the process of placing live coral fragments into seed plugs and then into the skeletons. With this, the production capacity is boosted, and Coral Maker can create 10,000 skeletons per day, each capable of hosting six to eight coral fragments.

Furthermore, Fusion 360’s cloud-collaboration features enable teams from different time zones to stay always connected!

Dr. Foster says “Collaborating with Autodesk has created an incredible link between biology and technology. This link empowered us to develop new technologies to restore reefs at a rate that was unimaginable just a few years ago.”

She further adds “And while coral reef restoration at this scale requires the kind of nature tech Coral Maker provides, we also need to scale the restoration economy. Recent, rapid developments in nature repair markets have us speaking with ESG and impact investors. I think we are close to a tipping point and scaled regeneration of our ecosystems is about to become a reality, which is very exciting.”

Innovation and Collaboration for a sustainable future

The collaborative efforts between Autodesk and Coral Maker present a beacon of hope for the preservation and restoration of coral reefs. Through their innovative use of recycled stone waste, manufacturing technology, AI-guided robotics, and design tools, they have embarked on a mission to save the coral reefs. 

Technological innovation and collaboration between subject matter experts are crucial in the fight against the devastating effects of climate change. Energy-efficient building designs, decarbonization, and utilization of AI-powered tools will enable businesses to take a proactive and sustainable approach to combatting environmental challenges. By embracing these advancements, companies can significantly reduce their carbon footprint, optimize energy efficiency, and make informed decisions for a greener and more resilient future.
