Overall Satisfaction with Autodesk AEC Collection

Autodesk AEC Collection comes with multiple software that we use daily. The primary include Revit, AutoCAD, Civil 3D, and Infraworks. The AEC collections solve the problem of having multiple design software stored in the same place and allowing for users to access some or all at the same time. Users can collaborate on various projects without any major headache allowing for efficient workflow without getting in each other's way. There is more software included in this collection and we use the others on a limited basis but they work together to create a streamlined workflow within the office and on-site. We have around 3-4 new projects starting every month and all of them use the software from the AEC Collection.
  • Collaboration with multiple users and
  • Software for Computer Assisted Design
  • Saving and Documentation of Plans and Blueprints
  • Accessing software and updates can be a little more intuitive.
  • Downloading software was confusing at first but is easy after understanding the process.
  • Revit
  • Collaboration for Revit
  • Autocad
  • Most of the software we use in the office and in the field is dependent on Autodesk AEC Collection.
  • We have been able to record a 20X decrease in job completion time because of the AEC Collection.
I have most of my experience in Revit and AutoCAD from the Autodesk AEC Collection. We used SketchUp for a short period of time because of the low cost of the software, but features in Revit, like the analysis tools, scheduling, and more made things faster and gave a more professional feel to our work and services. We selected to use the Autodesk AEC Collection due to the available software included and the number of tools and add-ins that can be linked to them.

Autodesk AEC Collection is very well suited for Computer Assisted Design Software involved in detailed design of architectural and construction documents Using Revit, AutoCAD, Civil 3D, and more as well as 3D modeling for characters and Game assets using character generator and 3ds max. The AEC Collection has a good learning system and Autodesk and a community support system. We primarily use the software for architecture and construction planning and design.

Using Autodesk AEC Collection

6 - In our organization, we have 4 project managers, 1 draftsman, and 1 BIM Coordinator/manager. Our project managers use the Autodesk AEC Collection with collaboration to combine office design and coordination on-site with contractors and owners. Our Draftsman uses the majority of the software available in Autodesk AEC collection and runs every project through them to get the best product and service.
3 - Our BIM managers support our organization as well as people and organizations who need to join our organization to complete a project. This includes managing software licenses, seats, and access to various projects. They also look for new software updates and implementation and process development. Our main Autodesk AEC Collection support is able to work from home due to having everything online and there have been little to no issues with this.
  • Day to day function of all projects.
  • Completion of required documentation for projects.
  • Annual and continuous updates to included software allow for major improvements.
  • Many improvements that we have asked for have been added to the software. This makes using the software easy and efficient.
  • We have been able to use Autodesk AEC Collection to create assets for Virtual Games.
  • We have been able to print and build 3D models for Architecture design.
I gave a rating of 10 because, thus far, Autodesk AEC Collection Seems to be on the leading edge for what is required for the construction planning, implementation, and continued of real-world assets. Autodesk has been a great benefit for our organization and has allowed us to continue to improve not only ourselves but the people we work with. We have been using Autodesk AEC Collection for a number of years and hope to continue for a long time coming.

Integrating Autodesk AEC Collection

  • Leica Geosystems, including Jetstream, Register, and Cloudworx for Revit and AutoCAD
  • Unity Reflect
  • Enscape
These three systems, especially Leica Geosystems, have been extremely important for our continuing to grow and develop as an organization. Autodesk has partnered with these systems very effectively. There were no major issues with integrating these systems into our organization and daily operation.
