Autodesk upgrades building software
Dubai, April 13, 2011
Autodesk, a leader in 3D software, has updated its 2012 portfolio which supports the building information modeling (BIM) process by offering comprehensive software solutions to help infrastructure industries meet today’s business challenges.
In addition to new and updated software products, Autodesk announced two new design suites for building design, construction and infrastructure professionals.
“The value that Autodesk BIM solutions bring to the industry begins with the information in building information modeling,” said Anders Arthur, regional director, MEA for Autodesk.
“Building information modeling is about more than just the model, it’s a process that helps our customers use the information inherent in the model to design, visualize, analyze and simulate a project.”
“The motivation behind the 2012 portfolio is to help our customers get more from that rich information to realize real business results, including quality, efficiency, productivity and sustainability,” he added.
Autodesk’s broad portfolio of BIM solutions includes AutoCAD Civil 3D and AutoCAD Map 3D software for transportation, land development and water projects.
Autodesk BIM solutions for the building industry are based on models created using Autodesk Revit-based software — including solutions for architecture, structural engineering, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering.
AutoCAD software for documentation and professional drafting complements these core BIM products and helps extend the value of building information modeling.
The new Autodesk Building Design Suite and Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite provide a comprehensive set of tools to help users address a variety of workflow needs, from project design, visualization and simulation to documentation and construction.
The visualization technology offered by the suites helps improve efficiency by making visualization and integral part of the entire design process.
Each suite offers a cost-effective way to respond to changing business requirements, providing access to the latest design and visualization tools through a single, economical and convenient purchase.
The new Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite will be available later this year in three editions: standard, premium and ultimate. – TradeArabia News Service
