Reasons to Buy

If you are considering whether to purchase Autodesk® Architectural Desktop , here are some compelling benefits to keep in mind

Autodesk Architectural Desktop includes more than 300 enhancements that address

Reduce Tedious Drafting Tasks
With intelligent architectural objects, such as walls, doors, and windows, that relate to each other logically, Autodesk Architectural Desktop provides many tools that automate tedious drafting tasks. Enhancements to the Autodesk Architectural Desktop user interface and new features such as direct manipulation enable you to easily make changes directly in a workspace that is both visual and intuitive, raising your productivity and providing a smoother design process.

Do the Work Once
Because daily revisions are a fact of life in most design projects, it is important that your designs are well coordinated with your construction documents. Autodesk Architectural Desktop ensures that the work you do in design development is available for immediate use during the documentation process. You never have to erase and redraw, and because your designs are linked to your construction documents, you can be confident that any change you make in your design is reflected in your construction documentation, helping to increase coordination and reduce errors and omissions.

Bring Your Designs to Life
To communicate design intent effectively, designers require tools to visualize and present design intent at every stage of the design process in a way that is fluid and efficient. Autodesk Architectural Desktop’s new visualization capabilities make this possible with VIZ Render, a visualization solution that is effectively integrated into the Autodesk Architectural Desktop environment, enhancing design workflow.

Work Effectively with Your Extended Design Team
Because Autodesk Architectural Desktop is interoperable with other Autodesk® building design solutions and services as well as third-party applications for specific needs, such as estimating, facilities management, or other niche markets, you can be sure that Autodesk Architectural Desktop has extensive tools for you and your extended design team to get your project done through effective collaboration. This wide variety of tools enables you to extract vital information from your building information model that can be used to save time and money during analysis, estimating, procurement, construction, and management of the building throughout its lifecycle—building lifecycle management (BLM).
