Building Design

AutoCAD® software delivers the power and flexibility needed to take your documentation and

design further. Explore concepts more intuitively in 3D, speed documentation, and share ideas

seamlessly with AutoCAD, one of the world’s leading design applications.

 

Explore

Now containing powerful 3D surface, mesh, and solid modeling tools, AutoCAD provides the

utmost flexibility to explore design ideas. The intuitive tools enable you to digitally sculpt your

ideas into almost any shape imaginable.

 

Document

Move from concept to completion more efficiently and faster than ever before, using the timesaving

documentation tools in AutoCAD. Parametric drawing tools, dynamic blocks, sheet sets, and an action recorder enable you to maximize productivity and accuracy when documenting designs.

 

Communicate

And with native DWG™ technology support, you can effectively collaborate across teams, sharing critical design data securely, efficiently, and accurately. Presentation-ready graphics, rendering tools, and powerful plotting and 3D printing capabilities enable you to communicate your design intent clearly and effectively.

 

Customize

Plus, if you need to customize AutoCAD to meet your unique needs, it’s easier than you may think. Configure your settings, extend the software, build custom workflows, develop your own application, or simply select an industry-tailored version already available.

 

 

Architecture/Building

Autodesk Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection

 

Autodesk® Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection is a portfolio of interoperable building design software that supports BIM- and CAD-based workflows to help professionals design, simulate, visualize, and construct better buildings. The Collection is tailored for building designers, drafters, and detailers who need a foundational set of documentation tools. It provides an optimized set of tools to help architects, MEP engineers, and structural engineers take advantage of the power of BIM with intelligent 3D model–based design. The Collection has comprehensive tools for design and construction that provide greater insight across the building lifecycle.

 

Get all the right tools

Support all phases of the building lifecycle with design technologies that cover conceptual design through construction including BIM and CAD– all in a single package.

 

Connect your workflows

Support team collaboration and benefit from better data continuity with interoperable design tools purpose-built to meet the needs of all contributors to a building project.

 

Put your project at the center

Lead the way to the future of building with latest innovative software and cloud technologies that give you unprecedented insight into your design projects.

 

Autodesk® Revit 2018

 

Autodesk® Revit® 2018 software includes new features and enhancements for consistent, coordinated, and complete modeling for architects, MEP and structural engineers and detailers, and construction contractors. New features strengthen support for multidiscipline design extending to fabrication detailing and construction.  Freeing users to focus on design rather than on their software, Revit automates more workflows and simplifies painful multi-step processes. Revit 2018 includes and builds on new features and functionality that were first made available to subscribers in the Revit 2018 point releases.

Structural Engineering & Analysis

AutoDesk® Robot Strucutural Analysis 2018

 

Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis now includes: React Structures, a structural analysis tool that supports BIM-integrated workflows with other Autodesk tools. It provides intuitive and easy to learn tools that help quickly analyze a variety of structure types within a single software platform. React Structures is a new offering from Autodesk for structural engineers. It is the next generation of a structural analysis platform, available on the market as a technical preview. That means that the program is still being developed and some features are not complete or not enabled or even missing. React Structures is built on the solid foundation of Robot Structural Analysis Professional, with a new and modern user interface supporting typical workflows and aligned with the rest of the Autodesk portfolio.

 

AutoCAD® MEP 2018

 

Autodesk® MEP Fabrication Suite is a portfolio of interoperable 3D construction software products that enable mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) contractors to connect to BIM based workflows at a lower cost of entry. Fabrication CADmep™, Fabrication ESTmep™, and Fabrication CAMduct™ software enable you to generate better estimates, create more accurate detailed model documentation, and directly drive fabrication.

Together with the latest releases of Navisworks® Manage, AutoCAD® , Revit®

and Point Layout software, connect BIM workflows to your detailing and fabrication workflows more collaboratively. Now, you can also tailor your software license investment to your unique business requirements.

Autodesk® Navisworks® Manage 2018

 

This software is a comprehensive project review solution for coordination, analysis and communication. Multidisciplinary design data can be combined into a single integrated project model for improved, interference management, clash detection and 5D analysis. Navisworks Manage helps design and construction professionals to anticipate and avoid potential problems before construction begins  To help enable that the latest version of design models and data can be reviewed and analyzed, Navisworks 2018 has updated Autodesk file readers, exporters and integrations. To provide an integrated workflow, Navisworks now supports integration for Autodesk Vault 2018 and Autodesk Recap 2018.

 

The file exporter for Autodesk 3ds Max 2018 has also been updated. AutoCAD 2018 and Civil 3D 2018 file readers and exporters are available as well. The file reader and support for ReCap point cloud data have been updated for Autodesk® Inventor® 2018.

 

In addition, support for Revit 2018 includes the file reader and exporter.

 

Bottom Line: These Navisworks 2018 updates help enable a smooth and integrated workflow with the latest version of design models and data.
