The 2010 line of 2D and 3D design and engineering software includes more than 50 products for a variety of applications. The software for infrastructure modeling includes AutoCAD Map 3D, MapGuide Enterprise, and Topbase software products.
The tools are best suited for telecommunications firms, state and local governments, and utility companies. New features help you more easily aggregate multiple sources of data, improve design or smart electric utility grids, make planning city projects easier, and can enable more efficient design and repair of highways.
Digital Prototyping for manufactures offers new assembly stress analysis and motion simulation tools in Inventor. Professional 2010 can help you simulate and optimize designs early. A new circuit builder tool in AutoCAD Electrical helps you to analyze energy efficiency of circuits and make more sustainable engineering decisions.
Autodesk Moldflow includes an energy usage indicator so you can decrease manufacturing energy requirements. The software also includes one of the largest plastic materials database, so you can evaluate different materials and make product design choices that can contribute to sustainability initiatives.
The companyâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s portfolio includes expanded tools for energy analysis including Ecotect Analysis green building software. It is a comprehensive sustainable analysis tool that offers a range of simulation and analysis functions including energy, water, and carbon analysis capabilities with desktop tools to conduct detailed environmental simulations and visualize results.
Revit MEP software for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers can determine energy demands of a building with native heating and cooling loads analysis, and export enhanced gbXML that allows you to examine analytical models of a project before export.
Other product updates include new free-form 3D design tools in AutoCAD, new conceptual design tools in the Revit platform, and extended simulation capabilities in the Inventor family for digital prototyping.
