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.
WHAT IS BIM?
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips architecture , engineering, and construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure. Building Information Modelling (BIM) processes have helped countless firms in diverse industries operate more productively, produce higher-quality work, attract more talent and win new business.
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 Modelling) can deliver business benefits whether you’re designing sustainable houses or reimagining the infrastructure of entire cities.
Delivering benefits throughout the building project lifecycle, make more informed design decisions, build more efficiently and cost-effectively and manage and maintain buildings with greater ease using BIM.
BIM technology supports architects throughout the lifecycle 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
• Realise your creative vision with innovative technology solutions that enable impactful design
Use intelligent, connected workflows to help improve predictability, productivity and profitability for civil infrastructure projects.
Bridges & tunnels
BIM helps you to anticipate issues, assess information and act more confidently at each stage of your bridge design project. Minimise re-work and improve predictability for design and construction of bridges and tunnels.
Rail & transit
Use BIM for railway design to help you to minimise rework and improve collaboration on design and construction for chainages, bridges/tunnels and railway.
Roads & highways
BIM helps you to anticipate issues, assess information and act more confidently at each stage of your roads and highways project.
Airports & ports
Use BIM for airport design to help you to co-ordinate complex models across various disciplines – architectural, structural, civil, mechanical and more.
CAD software to design anything—now with time-saving specialized toolsets, web and mobile apps
What is AutoCAD?
AutoCAD® is computer-aided design (CAD) software that architects, engineers, and construction professionals rely on to create precise 2D and 3D drawings.
• Draft and edit 2D geometry and 3D models with solids, surfaces, and mesh objects
• Annotate drawings with text, dimensions, leaders, and tables
• Customize with add-on apps and APIs
Work faster with specialized toolsets
AutoCAD now includes industry-specific features and intelligent objects for architecture, mechanical engineering, electrical design, and more.
• Automate floor plans, sections, and elevations
• Draw piping, ducting, and circuiting quickly with parts libraries
• Auto-generate annotations, layers, schedules, lists, and tables
• Use a rules-driven workflow to accurately enforce industry standards
Work anywhere with included mobile and web apps
AutoCAD mobile app
