- 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.
