Origami was the marketing hype apparently.

Folding and dimensional, flexible yet stylish - hard to envision in a 2D monitor.

Bet they look great with 3D and the right glasses. :smileyhappy:

They look like 3D puzzle or my children connects (like Lego). But any significant association with the hard work.

You always can announce a competition for the best design among the CAD users with the good prize. Good, but not veeeeeeeeery expensive.:smileywink:

The Autodesk and Vault icons look like the spaceships of these two races

Agree, BUGLY! I realize Autodesk is trying not to lose their newest disciples but seriously, they look HORRIBLE to those of us in the NON-ART world of engineering!

OK, I just got 2014 loaded onto my machine - WORSE THAN BUGLY! I can't even tell which one is which. Worst icon update ever!
