With Autodesk® Seek you can find and share product design information with the online design community to enhance designs and to meet specific customer needs. It allows designers to search for, download, and integrate generic or manufacturer-specific building products or components and associated design information.
When you are working in a design program, you may want to include products that, for example, meet design standards for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Autodesk Seek can help you locate such information and products, and get them into your design.
The design and product information available on Autodesk Seek depends on what content providers, both corporate partners and individual contributors, publish to Autodesk Seek. Such content could include 3D models, 2D drawings, specifications, brochures, or descriptions of products or components.
Autodesk has partnered with content aggregators such as BIMWorld™ and the McGraw-Hill Construction Sweets Network®, who maintain relationships with manufacturers, to provide and maintain product and design information within Autodesk Seek.
