Autodesk Brings Proven Plant Design Products Together with Release of Autodesk Plant Design Suite 2011

New Integrated Solution Provides High Value, Streamlines Plant Design, and Simplifies Product Purchase and Installation



SAN RAFAEL, Calif., July 14, 2010 — Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK), a world leader in 2D and 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, today announced the availability of Autodesk Plant Design Suite 2011, a new software suite for plant designers who need powerful plant design and whole-project review capabilities in a single integrated package. Autodesk Plant Design Suite combines AutoCAD 2011, AutoCAD P&ID 2011, AutoCAD Plant 3D 2011, and Autodesk Navisworks 2011 software to provide a powerful and accessible plant design solution.



“Bringing Autodesk’s AutoCAD-based plant design tools together with Autodesk Navisworks in a single package just makes sense for the industry. AutoCAD, AutoCAD P&ID, AutoCAD Plant 3D, and Autodesk Navisworks are all proven products that deliver tremendous power to the plant designer without the overhead and complexity of many competing products. Providing this suite now makes purchasing, licensing, installation, and maintenance easier than ever for our customers,” said Mark Strassman, vice president, Plant Solutions for Autodesk. “With very attractive pricing and built-in utilities to migrate legacy specs and catalogs, we have made it easier for users of other AutoCAD-based plant packages to make the switch to Autodesk.”



Components of Autodesk Plant Design Suite 2011



· AutoCAD 2011 for general design, layout, plot plans, and document generation

· AutoCAD P&ID 2011 for P&ID creation and editing

· AutoCAD Plant 3D 2011 for 3D modeling, orthographics, and isometrics

· Autodesk Navisworks 2011 for cross-platform model aggregation, clash detection, and 3D project review



A true integrated solution, the components of Autodesk Plant Design Suite share common data structures and file formats to provide for smoother user experience and data exchange. AutoCAD 2011, AutoCAD P&ID 2011, and AutoCAD Plant 3D 2011 share a common data foundation that promotes information consistency and accuracy. Autodesk Navisworks has long supported the DWG file format and now has new features that enable seamless design-to-review workflows. The result is a true concept-to-isometric solution that streamlines the setup, creation, and review of plant projects.
