Autodesk provides 3D modeling solutions that enable professionals across a wide range of industries to:
- Visualize designs and develop concept variations
- Test designs under real-world conditions
- Explore complete products before they are built
- Create dynamic graphics and effects
Autodesk® 3D modeling solutions benefit a variety of design professionals, from architects, engineers, and designers to visual effects artists, game developers, and design visualization specialists. With these high-performance, creative, and technical toolsets, you can streamline your 3D modeling workflow and increase productivity.
Autodesk provides state-of-the-art 3D modeling and design visualization tools that help you get a deeper understanding of how a project works before it's built. You can detect certain errors in the beginning stages of the design process—the earlier you find them, the easier they are to fix. Design visualization helps you create better designs, while gaining a competitive edge.

Building Information Modeling
Benefit from greater insight using Autodesk's intelligent 3D model-based Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions for planning, design, construction, and management of your building, infrastructure, or plant projects. The Autodesk BIM solution is based on coordinated, data-rich models created with the Autodesk® Revit® software platform and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software. Use consistent information throughout the BIM process to design and deliver projects faster and more economically, while minimizing environmental impact.
