Areas of Application

All-round Product Design

Take an all-round approach to the design of your products. By using the different software applications within the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection (PDMC), you can design products while also setting up the associated production lines in 2D or 3D.  

Linking Teams and Projects

Link different teams for your design project. The Product Design & Manufacturing Collection provides you with all the CAD and BIM application variants in a single location, which you can then manage efficiently while focusing on customer needs. 

Simulate Alternatives

Include all variations of a design and test the limits for improvements, also using the generative design functions. 

Automate Tasks

Maintain configuring according to customer needs, but do it faster. Use the included automation engine to make designing faster. And to top it off, compliance is automatically ensured across the entire team. 

Product Features

Increased Efficiency in Product Development

Parametric modeling – utilize parameter functions for 3D designs and 2D drawings.

Product visualization – use the tools in the Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection to communicate designs more clearly and create realistic 3D model animations.

Process efficiency – benefit from integrated efficient processes to seamlessly transition from design to manufacturing.

Benefit From Design Diversity

Generative design – consider all design variations by using generative design features.

Performance simulation – benefit from advanced simulation capabilities and avoid design errors from the outset.

Process simulation – detect weak-points in processes and optimize outcomes.

Manage Project Data

Data management – use the management tools in the Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection to manage your data quickly and securely.

Link designs – link your 2D and 3D CAD data.

Merge design projects – use the options to merge data and review designs.

Automate Tasks

Individualize product configuration – use the automation engine to individualize products.

Ensure compliance – use the Collection to create templates for components, assemblies and drawings – securely and automatically.

Faster validation – use the Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection for faster design and speed up downstream processes by automating routine tasks.


The Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection includes all major Autodesk software solutions for product design, factory planning and manufacturing. Integrated apps for CAD, CAM and CAE, as well as other services, support you in optimizing design, product quality and cost effectiveness. 

Make Product Development Faster

The Autodesk Product & Design Manufacturing Collection provides easy access to interconnected, automated and always up-to-date tools. Configure products faster and according to customer requirements, from the initial idea through to the prototype.

Optimize Product Quality

Optimize your projects and manufacturing processes. The included and linked simulation and validation applications enable easy management of even the most complex projects.

Reduce Costs

Use the Autodesk Product & Design Manufacturing Collection to reduce design costs. Individual functions speed up design. Compared to buying separate Autodesk licenses, the Collection significantly reduces costs.

Prepare for the Future

Cloud-based access and Fusion 360 prepare you for future advancements in planning and design.
