The tools you use to design today have been in development for as long as people have been sketching out ideas on scraps of paper to share with others.  As technology has evolved, design tools have kept pace to give more relevant data to the manufacturers on the shop floor or to the builders in the field to create less error and material waste.  Autodesk solutions not only help you design, but they can predict performance of your designs with simulation tools, and also help you to create photo-realistic visual representations that you can take mobile – just like those portable scraps of paper.
Today’s technology provides global connectivity with detailed data behind the design enabling production from anywhere.  We collaborate on bigger, cross-discipline teams, coordinating data and design among all project firms involved.  Autodesk offers solutions to address these needs with the 2015 Autodesk portfolio.
