Autodesk has announced this month the extension of new free tools to its “AEC Collection” software offering. The move is designed to address the needs of its current customers who are working in the AEC industry utilizing core products like Revit and AutoCAD.

Three Components Added—For Free

According to the news released in Autodesk’s In the Fold blog, customers are asking and so Autodesk is delivering. The three new components added to AEC Collection include:

  • Revit Live — their cloud-driven visualization and immersive environment that allows designers to take their designs into virtual reality (VR) environments, in just two clicks of the mouse.
  • New Analysis and Structural software — in the form of Robot Structural Analysis Professional and Structural Bridge Design, which both work with and extend Revit.
  • Digital Fabrication software — in the form of Advance Steel and Fabrication CADmep. This software enables users to conceive, model, and fabricate MEP and structural steel systems on an integrated platform.

Additionally, users can now access Dynamo Studio the standalone programming environment to help complicated form challenges in AEC design workflows. You can see an AutoCAD customer utilizing the AEC Collection in the Bulgari project below. To learn more read about AEC Collection here.
