Autodesk Building Design Suite Ultimate

Autodesk® Building Design Suite Ultimate helps educators prepare architecture, engineering, and construction management students to design, visualize, and simulate projects with Building Information Modeling (BIM) software and custom curricula. Students can learn to produce compelling visualizations and explore sustainable design analysis and modeling principles using the tools preferred by professionals. The tools help students explore modeling, conceptual design, and analysis, and better communicate design intent either on their desktops or anywhere, anytime through cloud-based services.


  • Builds an educational foundation with an optimized set of tools that includes the power of BIM centered on the Autodesk® Revit® software platform and the familiarity of AutoCAD® software applications for efficient documentation.
  • Helps improve understanding of design intent, increase efficiency, and enable new ways of working with BIM tools that inspire students to create sustainable design and construction.
  • Create, visualize, analyze, simulate, and iterate designs faster eliminating long wait time in studios or computer labs with cloud-based rendering in Autodesk® 360. The service, free to students, enables them to quickly gain insight into energy consumption and building lifecycle costs of design concepts, helping them to create more sustainable designs.
