Autodesk Takeoff Overview

By Jim Stephen | BIM

Win more work with integrated 2D + 3D quantification

Autodesk Takeoff is changing the way estimators win more work by combining 2D and 3D takeoff capabilities in a single, online solution. Produce quality estimates for faster, more accurate bidding.


Keep Teams Connected in Real-Time

Align estimators with construction teams with cloud-based data management that ensures everyone is working from a single source of truth. Eliminate oversight by giving the entire team access to the most up-to-date information.

Save Time With Automation

Save time creating competitive bids by performing more accurate 2D takeoffs and generating automated quantities from 3D models. Ensure that the most detailed quantities are captured to ensure the best project scope.

Reduce Risks with Insights

Avoid rework by visualizing project scope in 3D, allowing estimators to better understand design intent and constructability issues. Leverage a single inventory of 2D and 3D quantities throughout the construction process.

Collaborate across your estimating team, projects and business


Centralize document management

Organize, distribute, and share files on a cloud-based, single document management platform, ensuring all team members have access to the same information and latest document set.

Avoid repetitive processes

Perform linear, count or area takeoff with multiple quantities output and use custom formulas to generate complex quantities. Easily move existing takeoff to newer versions of the drawings.

Connect your data

Aggregated 2D+3D quantities can be rolled up by classification, type, and material. Easily export quantities to Excel and connect to your estimating solutions.

Simplify user management

Safeguard your projects with robust user-based permissions. Ensure the right people have access to the right data and tools.

Takeoff with speed and accuracy

Get access to quantities from the model for tremendous time savings and improved project scope visualization.

Improve Collaboration

Autodesk Takeoff breaks down data silos, allowing multiple estimators to collaborate on the same project.
