Autodesk, Inc., recently unveiled Autodesk Informed Design, a cloud-based solution that connects design and manufacturing workflows to streamline the building design and construction process. Informed Design allows design professionals to work with customizable, pre-defined building products and enables manufacturers to share their products with design stakeholders. Informed Design provides access to industrialized construction — the application of manufacturing principles to the built environment.
Autodesk Informed Design for Revit allows design professionals to create building designs with customizable, manufacturable building products.
Informed Design is part of Autodesk's Design and Make Platform environment, which includes cloud-connected software solutions that unite teams, data and workflows across project lifecycles. With Informed Design, Autodesk hopes to usher the AECO (architecture, engineering, construction and operations) industry towards an industrialized setup that embeds sustainability throughout.
As population numbers rise, the need for efficient and sustainably built housing continues to grow. “The way the AECO industry works today is not sustainable or scalable. For the industry to keep pace, it needs to build more, faster and more sustainably. The answer is industrialized construction,” said Ryan McMahon, director and general manager, Informed Design at Autodesk. “Autodesk Informed Design connects design and make from day one and brings industrialized construction workflows to reality. Our solution is unique because it empowers architects to design with certainty and validate their plans in real-time, while product managers and engineers can share accurate manufacturing information with design teams. As a result, projects are completed quicker, with higher quality and generate less waste.”
It is available globally as a free add-in for two of Autodesk’s industry solutions: Autodesk Informed Design for Revit and Autodesk Informed Design for Inventor. For more information, go to the Autodesk web site.
