Autodesk’s 2015 Building Design Portfolio

This article provides an overview of what’s new with the just-released 2015 Autodesk portfolio of products for building design and construction. The improvements include expanding the capabilities of FormIt and Dynamo, which Autodesk now refers to as “conceptual BIM” and “computational BIM” respectively; extending the scope and scale of Revit, including the ability to connect the design with fabrication and construction; enhancing the point cloud capabilities across all of Autodesk’s modeling products; providing better support for preconstruction; tighter integration with Autodesk cloud services; and improved analysis and simulation using the building model.
