Autodesk 2012 Product Suites

Per the ongoing web preview:

The new Autodesk Building Design Suite is available in three editions:

Standard, Premium and Ultimate

Standard (includes)
  • AutoCAD 2012
  • AutoCAD Architecture 2012
  • AutoCAD MEP 2012
  • AutoCAD Structural Detailing 2012
  • Autodesk Showcase 2012
  • Autodesk SketchBook Designer 2012
Premium (adds to Standard)
  • Autodesk Revit Architecture 2012
  • Autodesk Revit MEP 2012
  • Autodesk Revit Structure 2012
  • Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2012
Ultimate (adds to Premium and Standard)
  • Autodesk Navisworks Manage 2012
  • Autodesk Quantity Takeoff 2012
  • Autodesk Inventor 2012

Now I'm curious about delivery...will packages still be separate installations? Still hoping for single installation for a Revit "Sweet" Suite or Complete!

It IS still possible to buy individual versions without the "Suite" options.

Applications will be separate installations, as always. One thing to note is that the installation and deployment wizards are MUCH improved over 2011.

Also, in addition to the new ├╝ber-Suites coming out, everyone should understand that the 2011-era discipline-specific suites, i.e. AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite, AutoCAD Revit MEP Suite, AutoCAD Revit Structure Suite, will still be available.

However, I am led to believe that the AutoCAD Revit Visualization Suite (which included 3ds Max and Navisworks Simulate) will not be made available for 2012.

From what I understand about the new Standard, Premium and Ultimate packages, delivery will be via a USB stick and there will be a "one click" installation of all products...or selected products you want installed. This is something new for these "Suites".

Thanks for the clarification. I still dream of a single Revit, all tools one installation, no back and forth between versions for features.
