Improve Conceptual Design
Get designs into production faster, build brand loyalty, and drive revenue. Use industry-leading Autodesk conceptual design tools to:

  • Rapidly explore and refine creative ideas for innovative, differentiated products
  • Create sketches and 3D concept models that can be used directly by engineering
  • Accurately capture and share ideas with others for input and collaboration with Autodesk® PLM 360 product lifecycle management software
  • Create highly realistic representations from 3D CAD data, facilitating design decision making

Harness Leading Industrial Design Software
Autodesk's best-in-class conceptual design tools, including Autodesk® Alias® industrial design software (used by the world's top automotive OEMs), give designers the freedom to iterate multiple ideas, get input from stakeholders, and refine concepts—very quickly.

From Industrial Design to Mechanical Design
Reduce the chance of misinterpretation and error by closing the gap between designers and engineers. All Autodesk conceptual design and engineering tools offer bi-directional interoperability—so engineers never need to interpret or re-create designers' conceptual data. Instead, they simply bring 3D concept models into their CAD software, and work from it to further develop the digital prototype.

"We're making all of our new boats completely within the Autodesk digital workflow. And it starts with Alias… Our Alias surfaces are so high-quality we can go straight to tooling. By using Alias, we're cutting our turnaround time on projects tremendously—which helps us get to market faster."
