Autodesk, Inc., is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Since its introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk continues to develop the broadest portfolio of 3D software for global markets.
Customers across the manufacturing, architecture, building, construction, and media and entertainment industries—including the last 21 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects—use Autodesk software to design, visualize, and simulate their ideas before they’re ever built or created. From blockbuster visual effects and buildings that create their own energy, to electric cars and the batteries that power them, the work of their 3D software customers is everywhere you look.
Plan. Design. Build. Manage.
New technology is transforming the way AEC projects are designed, engineered, built, and managed—delivering greater ROI for firms of all sizes.
See how implementing BIM (Building Information Modeling) can deliver business benefits whether you’re designing sustainable houses or reimagining the infrastructure of entire cities.
See how your industry can benefit
BIM delivers benefits throughout the building project lifecycle. Make better design decisions, build more efficiently, and manage and maintain building portfolios more effectively.
BIM technology supports architects throughout the life cycle of design. Explore how BIM for architecture helps you:
Take your design from concept to reality with improved quality and efficiency
Gain a competitive edge to grow your business
Realize your creative vision with innovative technology solutions that enable impactful design
Use BIM to help streamline project delivery, work more collaboratively, and reduce risk. Integrated tools support the project delivery process from design, detailing, and fabrication, and installation.
Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP)
Use BIM to improve collaboration and communication, streamline project delivery across building system design, fabrication, and installation. BIM helps to reduce risk and waste for the entire project team.
BIM for building owners and managers
BIM for owners delivers demonstrable value from design, through construction, and into operations. Bring predictability into the design and construction process, reduce building lifecycle costs, and better manage building portfolios.
Reduce waste in construction projects with tools that help contractors and subcontractors improve construction planning, produce results faster, and finish projects on budget to increase profit margins.
Use intelligent, connected workflows to help improve predictability, productivity and profitability for civil infrastructure projects.
BIM helps you to anticipate issues, assess information, and act more confidently at each stage of your roads and highways project.
Bridges & tunnels
BIM helps you to anticipate issues, assess information, and act more confidently at each stage of your bridge design project. Minimize rework and improve predictability for design and construction of bridges and tunnels.
Airports & ports
Use BIM for airport design to help you coordinate complex models across various disciplines – architectural, structural, civil, mechanical, and more.
Rail & transit
Use BIM for railway design to help you minimize rework and improve collaboration on design and construction for stations, bridges/tunnels and railway.
BIM can help you anticipate issues, assess information, and act more confidently, with improved insights at each stage of your land development projects.
Make better urban development decisions earlier and improve project predictability, align government and community stakeholders, as well as help identify areas of project risk.
OIL & GAS
Supporting the lifecycle of the assets used to produce oil and natural gas, owner operators can use intelligent data (BIM) for operational efficiencies and compliance, while engineering, procurement, and construction companies can enhance project quality, and minimize costs and schedules.
Using BIM can improve performance and data quality in utility projects. It can also improve service through better stakeholder collaboration and process efficiency, and safe, reliable data access.
PROCESS PLANT INDUSTRY
Start process plant projects quickly with intelligent P&ID and 3D modeling. BIM for plant design – also known as intelligent plant modeling – supports multidisciplinary collaboration and delivery of an effective plant model for plants both inside industrial buildings and plants outside building walls.
