Software for people who make things

Autodesk makes software that gives people the power to make anything. It is a global leader in design and make software that helps turn ideas into future realities. Many Autodesk clients are innovators – in the products they develop and the way they do things. They have a track record of revolutionising the markets they’re in or creating unique ‘firsts’. Their vision is one of efficiency and innovation. Check out the Autodesk Gallery here for some creative design inspiration.

Autodesk software is used to design, collaborate, build and make across the manufacturing, architecture, engineering, building, construction, media and entertainment industries. If you’ve ever driven a high-performance car, admired a towering skyscraper, used a smartphone, or watched a great film, chances are you’ve experienced what millions of Autodesk customers have created.

The technology

Autodesk software and services harness emerging technologies - such as artificial intelligence (AI), additive manufacturing (3D printing), generative design, and robotics - to give companies and individuals the power to work more quickly, effectively, and sustainably throughout the entire project lifecycle.

Two of Autodesk’s primary products are AutoCAD® and BIM 360®. AutoCAD is a global leader in 3D design and development. It provides commercial computer-aided design and drafting software commonly used to conceptualise ideas, produce realised designs and even perform simulations in architectural planning, engineer drafting and graphic design. It allows users to draft and develop precise 2D and 3D drawings. Users can also save time by accessing industry specific features and intelligent objects that automate common floor plans, sections, elevations and other parts, while also taking advantage of a rules-driven workflow to accurately enforce industry standards.

Autodesk’s BIM 360 (building information management) is a unified platform that connects project teams and data in real-time, from design through construction. It enables real-time collaboration and data management to support informed decision-making within one firm or across multiple organisations - throughout the entire project lifecycle. This helps users deliver their best work and stay competitive.

The recent announcement of Autodesk Construction Cloud™ offers the next evolution in construction - helping businesses thrive across all phases of a project. It connects teams, workflows, and data - bringing it all together so the construction lifecycle is no longer disjointed.
