What's New for 2015

Industry Foundation Classes Linking
Use the new Insert tab to link Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) files directly into an existing Revit BIM software project. Collaborate more easily with designers using other file types. The improved quality of linked IFC data means increased visual fidelity and a better importing process
Sketchy Lines
Present drawings and models that have a hand-drawn look. You can apply this new graphic style to all views of models in Revit building design software. Use this intentionally unfinished look to encourage client feedback and iteration on designs
3ds Max Point Cloud Support
Import and visualize reality-captured datasets as point clouds in 3ds Max Design software. 3ds Max Design software's new support for the .rcp and .rcs file formats enables designers to take advantage of a connected reality-capture workflow with other Autodesk solutions including ReCap, AutoCAD, Revit, and Inventor software

Building Design and documentation

Comprehensive CAD Tools
Maximize your productivity with a complete set of CAD tools specifically created for the building industry. Work with powerful, related design programs that are based on AutoCAD software, such as AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD MEP, and AutoCAD Structural Detailing
BIM Tools
Take advantage of BIM tools to create intelligent 3D building designs. Specifically built for BIM, Revit software helps building design and construction professionals build and maintain higher quality, more energy-efficient buildings. Revit includes features for architectural design; mechanical, electrical, and plumbing; structural engineering; and construction
View and Edit Point Cloud Data
Clean, organize, and visualize laser-scanned point cloud data with the editing and selection tools in ReCap reality capture software. Use intelligent 3D data from scans of as-built conditions in Revit building design software for more precise and faster renovation and retrofit workflows. Compare as-built scan data with design data in Navisworks software for construction verification
Incorporate Scanned 2D Data
Use powerful raster editing and raster-to-vector conversion tools with AutoCAD-based software. AutoCAD Raster Design software helps you easily edit, enhance, and maintain scanned drawings and plans in a familiar AutoCAD environment. Make the most of raster images, maps, aerial photos, satellite imagery, and digital elevation models

Building Project Collaboration

Detect Clashes in Aggregated Models
Find and resolve design conflicts virtually, before construction begins, with Navisworks Manage software for design simulation and validation testing. Navisworks Manage software helps you control outcomes with advanced coordination, 5D analysis, and simulation tools. Navisworks features enable coordination, construction simulation, and whole-project analysis for integrated project review
Identify Conflicts
Gain greater insight virtually, before projects are built, with Navisworks Simulate software for design simulation and project review. Navisworks Simulate software helps you review and communicate project details through 5D analysis and simulation. Navisworks features enable coordination, construction simulation, and whole-project analysis for integrated project review
Improve BIM Collaboration
Streamline your workflow and work more effectively with other building design disciplines using Revit building design software. Revit includes features for architectural design, MEP engineering, structural engineering, and construction. These features enable you to:
  • Easily access a broader set of tools and content
  • Customize your toolset based on your needs
  • Improve multidisciplinary workflows
  • Streamline deployment
Create Fabrication Drawings Faster
Design building components for fabrication with Inventor 3D CAD software. Inventor provides tools that help architects and engineers collaborate with the manufacturers and fabricators that produce building components. Inventor helps you understand and capture design intent for today's demanding buildings and structures

Building Simulation

Powerful Quantification Tools
Perform material quantifications from design and multidisciplinary models for a smoother design-to-cost workflow through a new Navisworks feature. The new quantification features in Navisworks Manage and Navisworks Simulate software enable you to bring quantities from integrated 2D and 3D multiformat datasets into a project. Quantities can be generated in several ways:
  • From model properties
  • By adding quantification data to model objects without properties
  • By creating quantity placeholders for nonmodeled items (also referred to as Virtual Takeoff)
Structural Design Simulation
Perform advanced building simulation and analysis on large, complex structures using Robot Structural Analysis Professional software. Robot Structural Analysis Professional software provides a smooth workflow for structural engineers, enabling them to efficiently simulate and analyze a variety of structures. Use the software to:
  • Create structural models or review models from Revit
  • Perform required comprehensive analysis
  • Visualize and explore results once simulation is complete
  • Design steel and concrete elements according to design codes

Building Visualization

3D Visualization Tools
Create compelling building visualizations with 3ds Max Design software for 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and compositing. It gives architects, engineers, and visualization specialists sophisticated 3D building visualization tools that extend the Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow with push-button rendering and 3D animation tools. A streamlined workflow exclusive to Building Design Suite helps you send your Revit design to 3ds Max Design with ease
3D Presentation Software
Transform your AutoCAD and Revit software designs into 3D images, movies, and interactive presentations using Showcase 3D visualization software. Communicate your design ideas effectively and facilitate decision making with Showcase software. Create immersive 3D presentations, explore design options in real time with team members and customers, and help them make decisions on the fly, whether they are in the same room or across the world
Design validation with Navisworks
Use accurate building visualizations to validate designs, resolve conflicts, and improve coordination with other disciplines--before construction begins. Navisworks Manage software helps design and construction professionals improve control over project outcomes by integrating 3D models and multiformat data. Use the software's powerful visualization features to better coordinate disciplines, resolve conflicts, and plan projects virtually, before you break ground
