What is the Autodesk Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection?

The Autodesk AEC Collection provides designers, engineers, and contractors a set of BIM and CAD tools supported by a cloud-based common data environment that facilitates project delivery from early-stage design through to construction.

  • Create high-quality, high-performing building and infrastructure designs with conceptual and detailed design tools.
  • Optimize projects with integrated analysis, generative design, and visualization and simulation tools.
  • Improve predictability in the field with tools that maximize constructability and project coordination.
