Architecture, Engineering & Construction

Design Visualization

Design visualization helps you create and view interactive 3D models of future design projects. Exploring, validating, and communicating your design concepts within their intended context and throughout the development process offers a significant benefit to architects, designers, engineers, and future owners.

Bring a whole new dimension to your design visualizations with the Autodesk® 3D animation product portfolio. Autodesk software helps you communicate even your most complex mechanical, architectural, engineering, and construction concepts in a visually informative and compelling manner. Explore and enhance your designs with a wider range of simulations and animation.

Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software helps architects, designers, engineers, and visualization specialists to fully explore, validate, and communicate their creative ideas more dramatically, while offering digital continuity with the AutoCAD®, Autodesk® Revit®, and Autodesk® Inventor® families of products. Use Autodesk® Maya® software for comprehensive 3D animation, texturing, dynamics, lighting, and rendering for product design and manufacturing visualizations.

Autodesk design visualization solutions provide advanced 3D modeling, lighting, rendering, and animation toolsets to handle the most challenging architectural, product, scientific, medical, or industrial projects. Turn design data into beautiful imagery and bring your presentations to life. Experience industry-leading connectivity and interoperability with Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design software and the industry-leading AutoCAD® and Revit® families of products.

Building Information Modeling

Building information modeling (BIM) is an integrated process built on coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through construction and into operations. With BIM, architects, engineers, contractors, and owners can streamline projects through coordinated digital design information and documentation; create more accurate visualizations and simulations with regard to performance, appearance, and cost; and deliver their projects faster, more economically, and with reduced environmental impact.

Use BIM to share information and clear communication gaps between your extended design and construction teams across your entire building project. Making it possible for all members of your project team to contribute clearly and throughout the building process improves coordination, enhances accuracy, reduces waste, and enables better-informed decisions earlier in the process.

Autodesk is a BIM pioneer and proponent, helping advance the architecture, engineering, and construction industry with a diverse portfolio of integrated BIM software solutions. Autodesk BIM solutions help you develop sustainable designs faster, easier, and more economically with coordinated digital design information and documentation. The Autodesk comprehensive BIM product portfolio is based on the multidisciplinary Autodesk® Revit® platform–based products and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software.
