The Suite combines BIM and CAD tools to help professionals design, simulate, visualize, and build better and sustainable buildings and accelerate the industry’s adoption of BIM for infrastructure.
The Building Design Suite is available in three versions – standard, premium, and ultimate. The software allows designers and contractors to benefit from Autodesk portfolio of intelligent model based design software and expanded cloud services. Available to all users of the Building Design Suite and Autodesk ReCap, it can create intelligent 3D data from laser scans and captured photos. It also enables designer to add, modify, validate and document their design process in context from existing environments.
The software has a powerful raster editing and raster-to-vector conversion tool that increases the visual information on a building plan. The enhanced interoperability between technologies allows effective collaboration including improvements for IFC, DWFTM, DWGTM/DXFTM and 3D solids. There is also improved interoperability between AutoCAD and Revit, which makes it easier for firms making the transition to BIM. The quantification tools in Navisworks Manage and Navisworks Simulate allow building customers to easily bring quantities from an aggregated model into a project.
