Autodesk Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection

When great minds have great tools, they can accomplish great things

Meet the AEC Collection

The Autodesk AEC Collection gives designers, engineers, and construction professionals the tools and integrated workflows to create with ease, explore what's possible, and build with confidence.


AEC Collection capabilities for architects


Create high-quality, high-performing designs with a range of conceptual and detailed design tools.


Make data-driven insights the foundation for your design approach with powerful, fast performance and environmental analytics.


Connect workflows, improve BIM project delivery, and unify design and construction data to review and coordinate projects.

Exclusive to the AEC Collection

Streamline design reviews

Save time and stay organized with cloud-based review and approval workflows.


Common data environment

Simplify collaboration and data management with Autodesk Docs' cloud-based CDE to ISO 19650 standards.


Centralized issue management

Merge data and issues from AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks Manage, and more, into one centralized database.


Fluid collaboration with civil engineers

Connect workflow to Civil 3D to create cloud-based comparisons, improving discussions between architects and civil engineers.


Conduct rapid massing studies in Autodesk Forma (video: 2:56 min.)

New to the AEC Collection: Autodesk Forma

Use conceptual design and modeling capabilities, real-time analytics, and automations to make solid foundations for your projects.

The AEC Collection capabilities for structural engineers


Create more resilient, constructible designs that are detailed, coordinated, and connected to BIM.


Evaluate the behavior of a wide variety of structures to verify safety, reliability, and compliance with local regulations.


Transition from design to detailed models while respecting both perspectives and following local code requirements.

“The big difference is the amount of clashes and mistakes we’re able to catch with this 3D software.”

—Dominick Paradis, Design Engineer, Canam

The AEC Collection capabilities for MEP engineers


Adopt connected and integrated workflows in a dynamic BIM environment to make MEP systems more functional and efficient.


Combine analysis capabilities and technology to optimize your MEP systems and adhere to the highest industry standards.


Integrate your MEP project’s design with more detailed components for fabrication-ready outcomes.

“Number one is being able to design everything in Revit and be able to use that model in multiple operational units – engineering, coordination and estimating. Everything now is more real-time, everything’s a lot quicker when we need responses to pricing, to design changes.”

—Ken Luong, Senior Project Manager, TDIndustries

The AEC Collection capabilities for civil engineers


Create detailed designs or models with geospatial context, and document your infrastructure projects to meet required standards.

Analyze and visualize

Improve design quality with analysis and simulations tools to build resilient infrastructure. Visualize your design intent.


Improve coordination across multi-discipline teams and reduce rework with a centralized common data environment.

Exclusive to the AEC Collection

Bridge analysis

Manage bridge design project complexity with automation, analysis, and code compliance.


Vehicle swept path analysis

Improve design quality with a set of transportation tools for swept paths, parking, and roundabouts. 


Linear feature extraction

Automatically extract vector elements, 3D objects, alignments, and feature lines directly from the cloud.

Gain a competitive edge with BIM and GIS integration

Design resilient infrastructure for today and the future with direct integration of your BIM and GIS data.

Multiple applications within the AEC Collection have direct integration with Esri’s ArcGIS.

The AEC Collection capabilities for construction professionals

Structural fabrication

Create comprehensive shop deliverables with automated design to detailing workflows for concrete and steel structures fabrication.

MEP fabrication

Use BIM-based workflows to exchange shared data between design intent and detailing for fabrication.

Construction management

Rapidly move from design intent to construction without compromising quality so you can build with confidence.

The ROI of BIM workflows in the AEC Collection


Reduced rework during construction


Improved schedule control


Better win rate with BIM

*In 2021, Autodesk gathered data from 290+ contractors across the AEC industry to gauge the status of digital transformation and their perceived value of BIM.

The value of BIM workflows in construction

Construction firms of all sizes are realizing meaningful and measurable benefits using BIM workflows available in the AEC Collection.
