In the case where many different platforms are used in a federal model, BIM 360 Glue will work better than BIM 360 Coordinate.

You need to install the Autodesk BIM 360 Glue Desktop version to be able to create folders and upload files.

You can also install the iOS mobile version. In case reception on site is an issue, you will need to install repeaters or other infrastructure to connect you to the internet. You can work offline although it is better to have access to the internet. The mobile version is not available for Android, only iOS.

Navisworks is not necessary for your needs (as far as I understand them) as long as the models are correctly coordinated (spatial position). In case the alignment is off, I suggest importing the model into Navisworks to move it around and then to convert to NWD for upload. You can run a clash detection directly in BIM 360 Glue and online as you require.

Supported Navisworks file formats. A file export to any of the following should suffice for all platforms that are not supported. To see the supported file formats please see this list.

In case it is not possible to convert to a supported file format, try to use Navisworks to convert the model into an NWD file for upload.

In case you are running Autodesk software, it is possible to update the models to the cloud from within the GUI by using the Add-ins (if they are not already incorporated into the software).

Go to the Glue downloads accessed from within the glue interface.

The BIM 360 Coordinate/Glue licenses must be purchased by one party and allocated to the supply chain. The licenses only operate on the hub of the owner. If a person is allocated a license, it counts as consuming a license, but they may be operational on as many models as they please.

If you need help adopting BIM 360 Glue in an industry like Naval Architecture, please contact Micrographics so we may be of further assistance.
