The future of automotive, transportation and mobility

Uncertain technological drivers are not just disrupting but also converging the automotive, transportation and mobility industries. As sustainable mobility solutions emerge, we provide the means to ensure you are agile enough for the next big thing.

Autodesk drives automotive and transportation

  • “Autodesk has really excelled in offering this solution that allows you to develop a design from sketch to tooling release, all from the same familiar workspace.”
    – James Searle, Digital Design Manager, Lucid Motors

  • “By adopting generative and parametric design, with the contribution of industrial robots, 3D printing and artificial intelligence, we can make 90% fewer car parts a possibility.”
    – Angelo Yu, CEO, PIX Moving

  • “Lots of people underestimate how forward-compatible the digital-coordination model is. It’s not just the basis for planning; it will stay with us for the entire life of the building.”
    – Till Moczarski, Porsche Project Manager, Digital Planning

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Autodesk offers a wide range of software solutions. We offer concept design, visualisation, project management and collaboration solutions for the Design Studio. We also offer Advanced Manufacturing solutions for mechanical part and fixture design, CAM, data management and simulation. For your factories, we offer solutions connecting factory layout, design and planning to building information modelling.

Automotive manufacturing software is used to machine, print, inspect, simulate and fabricate parts. The software will virtually simulate the manufacturing processes and then control the machines for the actual fabrication process.

Within the design studio, data can be seamlessly exchanged between concept design, technical surfacing and visualisation applications, with everything linked together through our project management solution. For manufacturing, data can originate from virtually any source and be effectively used to define individual manufacturing processes all the way through the planning and construction of your entire factory.

Demand for variety and electrification is causing car companies to have to iterate faster and rethink interior design. By providing efficient tools and automation in our design solutions, customers can create concepts a lot faster, reducing the time to market for these new models.
