Autodesk Building Design Suite

Autodesk Building Design Suite

Autodesk® Building Design Suite provides a 3D building design software portfolio that combines Building Information Modeling (BIM) and CAD tools to help you design, visualize, simulate, and build more efficiently. Produce compelling visualizations, use integrated simulation and analysis, create higher-quality construction documentation, and improve control over project outcomes.

Standard: Efficiently design, document, and share drawings with the foundational set of tools for BIM and CAD workflows.

Premium: Get all the functionality of the Standard edition, plus tools to create compelling visualizations of building designs.

Ultimate: In addition to all Premium capabilities, get an advanced set of comprehensive tools for 3D building design and construction.

Intended for: 

Architects, MEP engineers, structural engineers, contractors
