The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014.
Amar Hanspal, Autodesk senior vice president of information modeling and platform products, said the company aims for the acquisition to expand its structural engineering services which offers steel and concrete detailing.
“We look forward to welcoming Graitec employees, customers and partners to the Autodesk community,” Hanspal added.
