Introduction

Firstly, hope you are doing well in the lockdown. The aim of this blog is to assist you to be able to share information between users and/or stakeholders.

The entry-level solution:

Autodesk BIM360 Docs solution is the entry-level solution and allows you to set up a cloud area for the sharing of information. Basic Document Management. You basically set up users and upload information to the area. The beauty of this that this becomes the single source of truth. Always have the latest version of the data. This data could be any files from Revit and AutoCAD DWG file to and PDFs and photos. You can also view version history and a complete log of events.

The Sharing Solution if you are using Revit:

If you are using Revit, you can also use the basic BIM360 docs solution, but you’ll need to upload the data manually.

The suggested solution is to use Autodesk BIM360 Design. This product includes BIM360 Docs, but the advantage is that you can upload your Revit project directly onto the Cloud area and many users can work on the same project at the same time. This is basically Revit Worksharing in the cloud, with the added ability to share the model with other industries, so they can link your architectural model into their projects.

Once the different Revit users have done work up to a point, they can then publish their progress to the Bim360 Docs area for non-Revit users to view, red line and comment on.
