Autodesk Takeoff found in the Autodesk Construction Cloud
Recently Autodesk consolidated their cloud platform to the Autodesk Construction cloud. The reason they did this is to have one cloud area that covers more of the phases of the construction process, from planning, design, build and operate.
Several additional products have now been added.
What is the Autodesk Construction Cloud
Autodesk Construction Cloud connects construction workflows and teams to the data at every stage of construction process to reduce risk and maximize efficiency. More on the Autodesk Construction Cloud : https://construction.autodesk.com/
What is Autodesk Takeoff
Autodesk Takeoff allows estimators to perform more accurate 2D takeoffs and generate automated quantities from 3D models in a single online solution. Preconstruction teams are empowered to win more work with integrated takeoffs and quantities that help produce quality estimates for faster, more accurate bidding.

With the Construction cloud allowing access to the latest version of the project and these to be always available it make sense to use this data as the start of the estimation and takeoff processes.
