Updated to align with the latest software editions from Autodesk, Trimble and Bentley, this book provides a common sense approach to leveraging BIM to provide significant value throughout a project's life cycle. This book outlines a results-focused approach which shows you how to incorporate BIM and other technologies into all phases of construction management, such as: Project planning: Set up the BIM project to succeed right from the start by using the right contracts, the right processes and the right technology Marketing: How to exceed customer expectations and market your brand of BIM to win. Take a practical approach to engineer out risks in your project by using the model early to virtually build and analyze your project, prior to physical construction.
Available in three versions Standard, Premium, and Ultimate—Autodesk Building Design Suite allows architects, engineers, and contractors to benefit from the depth and breadth of the Autodesk portfolio of intelligent model based design software and expanded cloud services.
This will allow our customers to more efficiently deliver projects on time and on budget. New products in Building Design Suite include: Autodesk ReCap: Available to all users of Autodesk Building Design Suite , Autodesk ReCap allows architects, engineers and contractors to create intelligent 3D data from laser scans and captured photos.
Rather than beginning with a blank sheet, Autodesk ReCap now enables any designer, architect or engineer to add, modify, validate and document their design process in context from existing environments.
Autodesk Raster Design: Powerful raster editing and raster-to-vector conversion tools that help architects, engineers and contractors increase the visual information on a building plan. Easily create, evaluate and communicate building projects in the context of the broader site—to help architects and urban planners to gain faster stakeholder buy-in and decision making. Key Enhancements to Building Design Suite include: Autodesk Revit enhancements: The release provides enhanced design, analysis and documentation capabilities to improve architectural and engineering workflows.
Revit also includes the new Building Element Energy Analysis tool, which provides advanced workflows for energy analysis using detailed Revit models. Interoperability enhancements: New quantification tools in Navisworks Manage and Navisworks Simulate: Expanded Cloud Services in Autodesk As part of the Building Design Suite, architects, engineers and contractors now have access to select Autodesk capabilities, which allow them to rapidly design, visualize, simulate, and share ideas anywhere, anytime with the secure and virtually infinite computing power in the cloud.
Autodesk Building Design Suite customers have access to the following services as part of an active subscription services vary by edition. Architects, engineers, and contractors can produce compelling, near-photorealistic visualizations in reduced time—without tying up the desktop or requiring specialized rendering hardware. Available for all Autodesk Building Design Suite customers on subscription. Autodesk Green Building Studio: Designers, architects, and engineers can optimize energy efficiency and support carbon neutrality and evaluate energy profiles and carbon footprints of various designs.
Users can more easily share outcomes and data between engineering software programs—making sustainable design more efficient and cost-effective. Energy Analysis for Autodesk Revit: Users can perform analysis of multiple building design iterations, optimize energy efficiency, and work toward carbon neutrality in the cloud.
Structural Analysis for Autodesk Revit: Provides users cloud-based static structural analysis capabilities allowing models to be sent to the cloud removing computational intensive tasks from the desktop. Autodesk InfraWorks Autodesk InfraWorks enhances Autodesk InfraWorks workflows by enabling architects, engineers and contractors to publish, store, and manage large models centrally and more securely in the cloud.
Optimization for Autodesk Inventor: Allows architects, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing MEP engineers to easily integrate manufacturer building components into their design process. Autodesk Building Design Suite Standard, Premium and Ultimate. Autodesk Building Design Suite Standard — is for designers, drafters and detailers who need a foundational set of tools to efficiently design, document, and share drawings in the DWG file format.
The Standard edition includes: Autodesk Building Design Suite Premium — is for architects, engineers, and construction professionals who need an optimized set of tools for building design and construction. The Premium edition includes all of the products in the Standard edition and adds: Autodesk Building Design Suite Ultimate — is for architecture, engineering, and construction professionals who need the power of BIM and an advanced set of tools for design and construction.
The Ultimate edition includes all of the products and cloud capabilities in the Premium edition and adds: Availability Autodesk Building Design Suite availability varies by country, with software and cloud services included varying by edition.
