Autodesk Unveils 2011 Software Portfolio for Building Design, Infrastructure and Construction Industries

Updates for Key Product Lines Promote Building Information Modeling and Multidisciplinary Collaboration for New and Renovation Projects

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 25, 2010Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK), a world leader in 2D and 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, announced new versions of its software for the building, infrastructure and construction industries. The updated portfolio is designed to help increase industry adoption of the Building Information Modeling (BIM) process, facilitate multidisciplinary collaboration and address new and renovation projects.

“The building design, construction and infrastructure industries must improve productivity, while at the same time completing complex projects on time and at, or under budget,” said Jay Bhatt, senior vice president of AEC Industry Solutions. “Our new 2011 software helps support that goal by capitalizing on the enormous benefits of Building Information Modeling, and facilitating multidisciplinary collaboration from start to finish for everything from new construction and renovations on residential and business projects to large-scale infrastructure and government projects.”

2011 Portfolio for Building Design and Construction

Autodesk’s 2011 software for new construction and existing building projects supports the Building Information Modeling process to help architects, designers and engineers more easily create and profit from digital design data and better communication across extended project teams. Updated software includes:

  • Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011 software -- Autodesk Revit Architecture helps architects and designers work naturally, design freely, and deliver projects efficiently. Purpose-built for building information modeling (BIM), Revit Architecture helps explore design concepts and forms, and better maintain design data through documentation and construction. With parametric change technology, any change made is automatically updated throughout your model, keeping design and documentation coordinated and more reliable. Key new features include:
    • Large team workflow
    • Enhanced visualization
    • Enhanced documentation
  • Autodesk Revit Structure 2011 software -- Autodesk Revit Structure is the purpose-built building information modeling (BIM) solution for structural engineering firms, providing tools for structural design and analysis. Revit Structure integrates a multimaterial physical model and an independently editable analytical model for more efficient structural analysis while providing bidirectional links to popular structural analysis software. Key new features include:
    • Framing enhancements (slanted columns, beam systems, trusses and connection symbols)
    • Reinforcement and concrete cleanup enhancements
    • Analytical model enhancements
  • Autodesk Revit MEP 2011 software -- Autodesk Revit MEP building information modeling (BIM) software helps mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineers, designers, and drafters gain the competitive advantage of BIM by analyzing and optimizing building systems designs before they are built. Autodesk Revit MEP helps design teams accelerate better design with tools that promote productivity and support sustainable design and analysis. Key new features include:
    • Cable tray and conduit modeling
    • Panel schedules and demand factors
    • MEP fixture management

To help facilitate the BIM process, while at the same time protecting investment in legacy software, training and design data investments, the 2011 portfolio includes:
