Autodesk 2016 Design & Creation Suites Now Available

Connected desktop and cloud experience tailored by industry for designers, engineers, visual artists worldwide

SAN FRANCISCO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 13, 2015Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) today announced the release of the new Autodesk 2016 Design Suites that offer more control than ever over all aspects of the design-to-make process through a connected desktop and cloud user experience.

Autodesk design and creation suites provide customers with expanded toolsets, unique interoperability and a consistent user experience.

“Our customers are pushing the boundaries on how products are designed and made, how buildings are built, and how entertainment is created,” said Amar Hanspal, senior vice president at Autodesk. “Autodesk Suites address the entire workflow: from capturing reality and iterating on a design, to physically making that design through 3D printing or other forms of fabrication.”

Each design suite includes AutoCAD 2016, ReCap and 3ds Max. AutoCAD 2016, the most advanced AutoCAD yet, delivers faster, more precise detailed design and documentation with rich visual accuracy. Autodesk’s ReCap technology, also included in every suite, continues to bring Reality Computing to a new level of accessibility and affordability across the Suites with the additions of more native laser scan formats, smart measurement tools, advanced annotation and sync capabilities and more. Autodesk 3ds Max provides customers with the 3D tools they need to create inspirational experiences no matter what their industry demands.

Sophisticated Tools for Industry-Specific Challenges

Customers in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) and natural resources & infrastructure industries can look forward to enhanced software capabilities, increasingly powerful cloud services and flexible subscription options, in addition to the following enhancements:

  • Building Design Suite offers improved software performance and better interoperability for visualization, clash detection and detailing.
  • Infrastructure Design Suite features connected workflows between preliminary engineering and the detailed design phases, better collaboration with extended data exchange capabilities, enhanced project organization tools and improved software coordination with consistent user interfaces.
  • Plant Design Suite introduces significant enhancements to AutoCAD Plant 3D including tight integration with Autodesk Vault and attachment of Navisworks models as reference models while modeling, plus inclusion of AutoCAD MEP to model electrical raceways and ductwork.

The manufacturing industry offerings provide the most comprehensive technology to design, engineer and fabricate products with new and enhanced capabilities for modeling, simulation and fabrication. The company is debuting new Autodesk AnyCAD interoperability for third-party design files, and new 3D printing capabilities that simplify the preparation of digital models for fabrication on any 3D printer.

  • Product Design Suite: In addition to AnyCAD and the new 3D printing capabilities, 2016 provides enhancements for visualization, data management, advanced simulation and includes subscription access to the cloud-based Autodesk Fusion 360.
  • Factory Design Suite: The 2016 version provides factory customers with access to interoperable, layout-specific workflows, cloud-based factory asset resources and powerful visualization and analysis tools that help increase design accuracy, efficiency and communication.
