Benefits of working with BIM 360 Design

Connect design teams to improve project outcomes 

Successful project outcomes depend on consistent communication with the team throughout every project phase. Connect teams and information in a central project location in the cloud to improve productivity, reduce rework, and accelerate project delivery.

Boost productivity

Teams can work on the same project, which helps them avoid time wasted on uploading, syncing, transferring or waiting on large files.

Improve project efficiency

See how new design information could impact ongoing work to help reduce rework and downstream construction delays.

Accelerate project delivery

Project information in a single cloud-based repository helps streamline approvals. Expedite review cycles with trackable coordination activity recorded for all teams.

Key Workflows

An efficient design process starts with connecting project teams

Integrated access to Civil 3D files, and design collaboration on a single cloud-based platform will helps teams boost productivity, improve efficiency, and accelerate project delivery.

Revit Cloud Worksharing

Revit Cloud Worksharing with BIM 360 brings powerful, collaborative Revit workflows to the cloud. Enable your teams to co-author Revit models in real-time, staying up-to-date with the latest approved work. Use the best talent for the job, no matter where they are located.

 

Key Benefits

  • Publish Revit models to a central cloud location
  • Control access and permissions to Revit models
  • Co-author with designers anytime, anywhere
  • Sync changes to save ongoing design work

Key Features

Real-time Cloud Worksharing

Upload Revit models to BIM 360 to co-author them concurrently with other approved users utilising worksharing processes based in the cloud.

Sync with Central

Save your ongoing concurrent work to the cloud by making sure to “Sync with Central”, relinquishing work for other users if desired.

Publish Cloud Models

Publish the entire model to BIM 360 for other users to view, search, and collaborate on. Select sheets and views from the central model to curate.

Change Visualisation

Explore shared packages in Design Collaboration module before accepting them into your team’s space to understand how new design information will impact your team’s work in progress. Navigate the aggregated project model by team, phase, or building level, toggling to review added, deleted, or modified elements in the last round of changes.

 

Key Benefits

  • Explore contents of packages in your browser
  • Compare another team’s incoming information to ongoing work
  • Navigate from 2D sheet to 3D model in context
  • Search and filter changes by ID or type

Key Features

Explore Packages and work in progress data

Explore contents of packages and work in progress data to understand what was included in deliverables sent by other teams or published by the own team.

Hypermodel navigation

Use contextualised viewing and navigation between 2D sheets and 3D views in the aggregated model (hypermodel) to better understand designs.

Show Changes

Compare package contents to the last package consumed from other teams for further clarity before consuming it for further design work.

Filter Change results

View added, deleted, and modified elements, and filter by disciplines affected or modification types.

Search Changes

Look up specific elements using keyword search by known name or ID, or by pre-defined Revit categories.

Design Review

Review Revit cloud workshared models, 3D views, and 2D sheets with team members to clarify or address design issues.

Collaboration for Civil 3D

Collaboration for Civil 3D helps project teams to share design data securely across multiple companies. Streamline deliverables coordination, visualise changes, manage issues and markups, all in a common data environment throughout the life of the project.

 

Key Benefits

Collaborate with project teams, outside company firewalls, and manage Civil 3D design data securely, in real-time.
