- Architectural BIM CAD software developed by the Hungarian company Graphisoft.
- Computer aided solutions for handling all common aspects of aesthetics and engineering during the whole design process of the built environment
- Development of software started in 1982 for the original Apple Macintosh.
- Recognized as the first CAD product on a personal computer able to create both 2D drawings and parametric 3D geometry
- More than 100,000 people are using it in the building design industry today.
- Commercial software application for 2D and 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting, developed and marketed by Autodesk, Inc.
- First released in December 1982, running on microcomputers with internal graphics controllers
- Used across a wide range of industries, by architects, project managers, engineers, designers, and other professionals
- Supported by 750 training centers worldwide as of 1994
- As Autodesk’s flagship product, by March 1986 AutoCAD had become the most ubiquitous CAD program worldwide.
- AutoCAD is in its twenty-ninth generation, and collectively with all its variants, continues to be the most widely used CAD program throughout most of the world.
- Building information modeling software for architects, structural engineers, MEP engineers, designers and contractors.
- allows users to design a building and structure and its components in 3D, annotate the model with 2D drafting elements and access building information from the building models database.
- Revit is 4D BIM capable with tools to plan and track various stages in the building’s lifecycle, from concept to construction and later demolition.
