Since introducing AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk has developed a broad portfolio of 3D CAD software programs to help users explore design ideas, visualize concepts, and simulate how designs will perform in the real world.
3D CAD software innovations
Autodesk’s Digital Prototyping tools help engineers and designers experience their 3D CAD designs virtually, before they’re built. By connecting every phase of your design process through a single digital model, our Digital Prototyping solutions let your teams test and optimize 3D CAD designs, helping to drive innovation, achieve higher quality, and speed time to market.
Our Building Information Modeling (BIM) software gives designers and engineers an integrated way to explore a project’s key physical and functional characteristics digitally. Through the use of an intelligent 3D model to inform and communicate project decisions, our BIM solutions deliver insight and business value for building design, construction, infrastructure, and utilities projects.
