    Start with your desired outcome, then explore a near infinite range of possibilities and produce optimal designs in a fraction of the time - the power of the cloud helps make this a reality today. Designers and engineers can generate multiple options, ideas and scenarios more rapidly than ever before - exploring forms, simulating performance, and impressing clients with cinematic quality renders and optimal designs.

    Computational design

    Dynamo is open source graphical programming that extends Building Information Modeling (BIM) with the data and logic environment of a graphical algorithm editor. For designers, that means rules-based design engines can help make previously inconceivably tedious tasks possible. Visual programming is the future of computational design. It doesn’t design a building; it designs the system that designs a building. Input design objectives including specific materials, performance, and cost criteria, and let the power of the cloud evaluate possible variations. In the era of connection, the best design option can be discovered in days, not weeks. Learn more about Dynamo and try it for free

    Building performance analysis

    Building performance analysis and BIM can help designers predict the performance and cost of a building during the design process. Factors like the location of the building and associated weather data, including detailed information on temperature, the sun’s path and wind patterns, can be used to analyze and simulate things such as HVAC sizing, energy use, water use, shading, and lighting levels. Designers can then make better, more sustainable design decisions. Join the discussion on building performance analysis

    Movie quality images

    Photorealistic visualizations are increasingly being used across industries to tell a story, so that a building, a bridge or a railway can be ‘viewed’ before actually being built. 
Rendering in Autodesk A360 helps to create photorealistic images, panoramas, solar studies and luminance simulations. Designers can share these visualizations to support clients and stakeholders in making fast and informed decisions. Cloud rendering in Autodesk A360 manages large batches of rendering jobs in a fraction of the time required on your desktop. Find out more about Autodesk 360 rendering
