Its AutoCAD and Revit software is primarily used by architects, engineers, and structural designers to design, draft, and model buildings and other structures. Autodesk software has been used in many fields, from the New York Freedom Tower [4]  to Tesla electric cars. [5]

The company makes educational versions of its software available at no cost to qualified students and faculty through the  Autodesk Education Community , and also as a donation to eligible nonprofits through  TechSoup Global . Autodesk's  digital prototyping  software, including  Autodesk Inventor , Fusion 360, and the Autodesk Product Design Suite, are used in the manufacturing industry to visualize, simulate, and analyze real-world performance using a digital model during the design process. [6]  The company's  Revit  line of software for  building information modeling  is designed to let users explore the planning, construction, and management of a building virtually before it is built. [7]

Autodesk's  Media and Entertainment  division creates software for visual effects, color grading, and editing as well as animation, game development, and design visualization. [8]  3ds Max and Maya are both 3D animation software used in film visual effects and game development.
