Autodesk Building Design Suite 2017


Building design software for BIM and CAD

Building Design Suite is a portfolio of interoperable 3D building design software. It supports Building Information Modeling- and CAD-based workflows for architects, MEP and structural engineers, and construction professionals.

Desktop Subscription gives you access to Building Design Suite at the lowest cost of entry. Stay current with the latest releases, and benefit from flexible licensing rights, select cloud services, and 1-on-1 web support.



Design to your standards

  • Work more efficiently with tools designed for architects
  • Develop higher-quality, more accurate designs
  • Use both CAD- and BIM-based workflows

Visualize to improve collaboration, explore design options

  • Create visualizations to better present design intent
  • Use presentation tools to evaluate options in context
  • Gain greater downstream visibility earlier in the process

Make more informed design decisions

  • Create more efficient buildings with energy analysis tools
  • Gain better insight into constructability using 3D models
  • Help resolve conflicts before construction



Visually explore project constructability

  • Determine project complexity, labor and materials scope
  • Aggregate data for whole project review
  • More effectively coordinate site and workflow planning

Improve cost reliability

  • Rapidly generate material takeoffs
  • Evaluate the cost of design alternatives
  • Maintain more accurate budgets

Better predict and communicate project outcomes

  • Simulate schedules and logistics in 4D
  • Quickly assess scope changes
  • Compare actual schedule to forecasts


Structural Engineer

Design more efficiently

Visualize to help inform your designs

  • More clearly communicate design intent
  • Perform more accurate simulation and analysis
  • Minimize waste and total embodied energy

Document with constructability in mind

  • Help resolve conflicts before construction
  • Share designs with detailers, fabricators, and contractors
  • Document more accurately―from design to fabrication


MEP Engineer

Create better MEP systems

  • Design more accurately with intelligent models
  • Design complex building systems with greater efficiency
  • Facilitate coordination of designs using 3D models

Visualize to gain better project insight

  • Communicate ideas with integrated visualization tools
