The Autodesk AEC Collection

Tools for successful construction projects

Autodesk AEC Collection

Autodesk's Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection brings all Autodesk's key CAD and BIM software solutions together to enable successful construction, planning and infrastructure projects.

Tools For Successful Construction Projects

The software solutions included in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection (AEC) help you create premium products using the latest design and engineering tools. Start using it now and benefit from tools to link teams and data – from design to completion. 

Areas of Application

Building Design

The design and analysis tools included in the AEC Collection enables you to increase the quality of your designs. Optimized data sharing and integrated workflows improve collaboration between all those involved in the project. 



AEC minimizes construction risk from the outset, thereby preventing costly reworking. The intelligent linking of time and cost simulations enables you to fully concentrate on smart project management. 


Product Features

Designing Buildings BIG

Transform the way you design buildings by using the CAD and BIM features included in the AEC Collection throughout the project lifecycle – from design to construction. Use specialized tools, including tools for professional engineering and building services, from anywhere in the world thanks to cross-team cloud systems.

Work Together to Upgrade Infrastructure

Improve not only transport infrastructure, but also projects and team infrastructure. Use interdisciplinary organization of teams and projects using integrated workflows, from the construction site to final approval – also for complex water infrastructure projects.

Smart Planning of Construction Work

Plan building construction as a general contractor or structural engineer smartly and efficiently using the AEC Collection. It enables a smooth transition between planning intent and detailed planning, i.e., from the initial idea to the end product.


The AEC Collection contains key CAD and BIM (Building Information Modeling) tools for planners, engineers, architects and contractors to achieve first-class construction projects. See the benefits for yourself:
