New Products Optimize Design and Performance for Architecture, Engineering and Construction
SAN RAFAEL, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 6, 2010 — Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) announces that several Autodesk Developer Network (ADN) members have released companion solutions for Revit Architecture 2011 and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011. ADN developers reconfigure Autodesk software for niche industries, providing customized products that streamline design efficiency, innovation and sustainability.
“ADN partners, offering companion solutions to Revit Architecture 2011 and Civil 3D 2011, are allowing their architecture, engineering and construction customers to efficiently and collaboratively model and design complex projects,” said Richard, Harpham, Autodesk director, AEC industry marketing. “These solutions extend building information modeling practices that cut the costs and time for delivering work. Our developer partners, building on Autodesk technology, are reaching millions of new customers in niche markets and, in turn, tremendously increasing the growth of BIM adoption and by helping customers become more competitive in winning work.”
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an integrated process for exploring a project’s key physical and functional characteristics digitally before it’s built, helping to deliver projects faster and more economically, while minimizing environmental impact. Coordinated, consistent information is used throughout the process to design innovative projects; better visualize and simulate real-world appearance, performance and cost; and create more accurate documentation.

About Autodesk Revit Architecture and AutoCAD Civil 3D
Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011 software helps architects and designers work naturally, design freely and deliver projects efficiently. Purpose-built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), Revit Architecture helps you explore design concepts and forms, and better maintain your design data through documentation and construction. With parametric change technology, any change you make is automatically updated throughout your model, keeping your design and documentation coordinated and more reliable. Share essential BIM data with your partners for a more collaborative, integrated building design process. Support a more efficient design process that enables improved sustainable design analysis, clash detection, construction planning and material fabrication.
AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 software, the building information modeling (BIM) solution for civil engineering, helps teams deliver higher-quality transportation, land development, and environmental projects faster. Civil 3D helps civil engineers explore design options, analyze what-if scenarios, and optimize performance before projects are built. Its model-based approach helps streamline time-consuming tasks and keep designs coordinated, enabling higher-quality documentation and visualizations. Extend Civil 3D model data to perform geospatial and stormwater analysis, generate quantity takeoff information, and better support automated machine guidance during construction. Gain the competitive advantage of BIM to deliver more innovative project solutions.
