*Customer idea

We listen so you can better design and build the future.

At Autodesk, we celebrate customers and communities that shape a better world. In 2023 we launched our first Customer Advisory Boards (CAB), where we heard from our customers directly the capabilities they need to design and make the environments and infrastructure that give physical form to the future. From open data models to better tools to mitigate carbon, we’re listening and we’re taking action – watch how.
