Software for Building Information Modeling
Video: How to start a building project in Revit
Purpose-built for BIM, Autodesk Revit Architecture building design software helps architects and designers capture and analyze early concepts and then better maintain designs through documentation and construction.
Enjoy a more collaborative, integrated building design process by sharing essential data with your partners, and use BIM workflows to help drive more efficient sustainable design analysis, clash detection, construction planning, and material fabrication.
Autodesk Revit MEP software is the building information modeling (BIM) solution for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers. Revit MEP offers purpose-built tools for building systems design and analysis.
With the parametric change management technology in Revit MEP, you can coordinate modifications more consistently across the model. Built-in analysis capabilities and interoperability with partner applications offer support for sustainable construction, enabling better decision making for cost-effective and environmentally conscious designs.
Autodesk Revit Structure helps optimize structural design by coordinating design and documentation and providing bidirectional links to structural analysis software.
Extend design data to fabrication with AutoCAD Structural Detailing, a powerful solution for detailing and creating fabrication shop drawings for steel and reinforced concrete structures. AutoCAD Revit Structure Suite helps design teams speed design creation and better document structural engineering projects.
AutoCAD Revit LT Suite delivers the intuitive Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools
of Autodesk Revit LT software, plus the familiar drafting tools of AutoCAD LT.
Transition to BIM at your own pace with Revit LT, while continuing existing project work with AutoCAD LT. Create higher-quality construction documentation by working with coordinated, intelligent 3D models. Design and communicate ideas more clearly by visualizing buildings virtually in 3D Exchange designs with stakeholders using Autodesk Revit and AutoCAD software products to help meet client needs and win new business. Render in the cloud with Autodesk 360 Rendering (available through Autodesk Subscription) to produce compelling, photorealistic renderings.
AutoCAD Map 3D software is a leading engineering platform for creating and managing spatial data. Using open-source Feature Data Object (FDO) technology, AutoCAD Map 3D provides direct access to the leading data formats used in design and GIS and enables the use of AutoCAD software tools for maintaining a broad variety of spatial information.
Bridging the gap between CAD and GIS, AutoCAD Map 3D makes it possible for engineering and GIS professionals to work with the same data and enables design processes to integrate geospatial functions in a single environment for more efficient workflows.
The results are better designs, increased productivity, and better data quality.
3D Studio MAX Design
Autodesk 3ds Max Design provides a comprehensive, integrated rendering, 3D modeling, and animation software solution for architects, designers, civil engineers, and visualization specialists to help tell the story behind their designs.
Populate AutoCAD, Revit and Inventor data with over 30 2d and 3d data types when upstream changes occur.
Identify and coordinate clashes and interferences, collaborate with project teams, and gain insight into potential problems before construction begins.
Combine design, construction, and other project data into a single integrated project model.
Fully integrate, analyze, and communicate your design models. Gain insight and predictability into construction.

Cost estimating & quantity surveying software helps make material costing faster, easier, and more accurate. Building cost estimators can create synchronized, comprehensive project views that combine important information from BIM tools with geometry, images, and data from other sources. Automatically or manually measure areas and count building components, export to Microsoft Excel, and publish to DWF format.
NOTE: Autodesk is not releasing Quantity Takeoff 2014.
3d quantification functionality is included in Navisworks Manage 2014. Autodesk is supporting Quantity Takeoff 2013, which supports 2d quantification.   QT FAQ - Update
AutoCAD Civil 3D software, the BIM solution for civil engineering, helps project teams deliver higher-quality transportation, land development, and environmental projects faster. Explore design ideas and analyze what-if scenarios to help optimize performance before projects are built. Extend Civil 3D model data to perform geospatial and stormwater analysis, generate quantity takeoffs, and support automated machine guidance during construction. Civil 3D provides the BIM advantage and tools you need to deliver more innovative design solutions.
