Autodesk launches new AEC software suite

The 2010 software suite is geared toward helping architects, engineers, and contractors integrate BIM.


Autodesk Inc.’s 2010 software is geared toward helping AEC professionals make use of the building information modeling process. This updated package includes several enhancements designed to increase interoperability, improve green-building analysis, and boost efficiency.

The Revit Platform-based products help give the entire suite a consistent look and feel for ease of use. It includes Revit Architecture, which lets users accurately capture design concepts and works with other design software; and Revit Structure, click here for more information about the MEP software .

The suite also includes AutoCAD Civil 3D software—geared toward civil engineers—helps simplify digital modeling of transportation, land-development, and environmental projects before they’re built. Navisworks (consisting of Review, Simulate, Manage, and Freedom software) brings disparate project contributions into a synchronized model for BIM. The 3ds Max Design software enables users to explore and communicate ideas, from concept to film-quality presentations.
