Autodesk is a global industry leader in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software. Autodesk provides the broadest portfolio of integrated solutions for simulation, analysis, data management and collaborative project workflows.
Using Building Information Modeling (BIM), an integrated process that helps professionals explore a project’s key physical characteristics solutions from Autodesk
The comprehensive portfolio of Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Infrastructure solutions helps engineering consultants, contractors and construction professionals explore a project’s key physical and functional characteristics digitally, before anything is built. With analysis capabilities from the Cloud as well, professionals gain valuable insight to improve the way they plan, design, build and manage bridges, and other infrastructure projects.
- Make better informed design and management decisions by bringing multiple types of data together into a single view to better understand project impact.
- Deliver higher-quality design alternatives faster by evaluating more what-if scenarios earlier in the design process with intelligent model–based solutions that dynamically update related design elements when changes are made.
- Better evaluate project performance, more accurately communicate design intent, and help build stakeholder support for projects by using intelligent models to generate more realistic simulations and visualizations.
- Help minimize environmental integrity threats with integrated analysis capabilities.
- Facilitate time and material savings by using more coordinated, consistent data to compute, analyze, and deliver high-quality models to contractors for automated machine guidance.
Autodesk technology helps Autodesk customers imagine, design, and create a better world through more efficient business practices, better designs, more innovative content, and more sustainable solutions to environmental challenges.
