It’s Revit’s birthday, but the presents are for YOU

It’s been 15 years since Revit joined the Autodesk portfolio. Since this time, Revit has matured into a premier BIM authoring platform for design professionals, and helped usher in the new era for how buildings are designed, built, and used. The future promises to be even better thanks to changes we’re making to how you access Revit and the connected, integrated design software it works with. For Revit’s birthday, we want to say THANKS to our global users and give you the power to extend your Revit models to support additional workflows.

As of today, when you subscribe to Revit through the Autodesk’s Architecture, Engineering and Construction Collection, you’ll receive specialized tools that extend Revit’s current capabilities far beyond design. With these additions, and with no price change, it will be easier for you to access and implement the powerful workflows that Revit supports —when you need them.

So what are we giving you in the new AEC Collection?

AEC Collection Products for Revit's birthday

New AEC Collection product composition as of September 7, 2017.

Open your presents!

If you’ve already subscribed to the AEC Collection, then go ahead and join the party! Log into your account to access the new workflows described above. If you’re not accessing Revit through the AEC Collection, here are some reasons why you should.

Everything you need

Even the best problem-solver needs to use more than one tool. With the AEC Collection you’ll have all the software tools you need. The Collection is a broad portfolio of interoperable BIM and CAD software. It includes Revit, but also AutoCAD, Navisworks Manage, and 3ds Max—plus a lot more. You can see the full list of included software here. You choose the individual products you want to use and download and install what you want, whenever you like — whether it’s for occasional use, to meet requirements of a particular project or client, or to explore new workflows. By subscribing to the AEC Collection*, you’re always on the most current version of all software in the collection. Simply log into your My Account page to access software updates and releases as soon as they are made available. Working on a project in an earlier version of software? No problem. You have full control over when to make updates as well as access to previous releases when you need them.

Powerful workflows

Just like the strongest teams, the Collection is truly greater than the sum of its parts. When used together, the interoperable software supports powerful Revit-based workflows that extend your BIM capabilities.  Check out what the new Collection can do for you if you’re an architect, structural engineer, or MEP professional.

Prepare for the future

The Collection includes some of the latest innovative software and cloud technologies that cover conceptual design through pre-construction, helping provide insight into your design projects. Get access to tools and services that enable you to work more efficiently, improve project team collaboration, and expand your capabilities with technologies you’ve always wanted to try but maybe couldn’t justify licensing separately.

Celebrate Revit’s birthday! Let’s go make some fabulous stuff.
