Design and build with confidence using integrated AEC tools and workflows

Trusted by Engineers, Architects & other industry-leading professionals around the world.

Overview

Summary

The AEC Collection provides designers, engineers, and contractors a set of BIM and CAD tools that support projects from early-stage design through to construction.

  • Create high-quality, high-performing building and infrastructure designs with conceptual and detailed design tools. 
  • Optimize projects with integrated analysis, generative design, and visualization and simulation tools. 
  • Improve predictability in the field with tools that maximize constructability and project coordination.

Highlights

Use Inventor® 3D CAD modeling software for product and mechanical design. Learn about the Inventor modeling, design, simulation, and rendering features.

Streamline team coordination

Adopt integrated workflows that enable design teams to work more efficiently across locations and disciplines, minimizing disruptions throughout the project.

Accelerate the design process

With intelligent model-based design and task automation, you can focus on the most important design challenges.

Improve design quality

Exceed client expectations with design and analysis software that allows you to tap into your creativity and problem solving.

Keep constructibility top of mind

Coordinate effectively from design to construction to reduce risks, minimize RFIs, and ensure constructability.

Mitigate risks early

Improve predictability in the field by designing high Level of Development (LOD) models.

Avoid costly rework

Use powerful 3D coordination tools that detect clashes, errors, and omissions.

Workflows

The AEC Collection provides complete solutions that begin with design and end with construction.

Architecture

Early stage design

Create and explore design ideas using conceptual and computational design tools in the AEC Collection.

Structural Engineering

Structural engineering workflows

Design, analyze, and detail concrete and steel structures with Revit, Robot Structural Analysis Professional, and Advance Steel.

MEP Engineering

Design high-performing buildings

Get real-time feedback to inform design decisions for better building performance with Revit and Insight.

Generative Design in Revit

Generative Design is a new feature now available exclusively through the AEC Collection with Revit 2021. Now you can quickly generate design alternatives based on your goals, constraints, and inputs to give you higher-performing options for data-driven decision making.
