Autodesk is converging its AEC project delivery and construction management solutions into one cloud platform: BIM 360. As of April 9th, 2018, Collaboration for Revit will be repackaged and rebranded as BIM 360 Design.
BIM 360 Design is a cloud worksharing, design collaboration, and data management product built for distributed and multidisciplinary teams on the new BIM 360 platform. You can co-author Revit models the same way you have in Collaboration for Revit, and access data management and collaboration functionality like 2D & 3D viewer and markup tool accessible via web, phone, and tablet. You can also use additional features like:

What happens to the current projects in Collaboration for Revit?
If you are using Collaboration for Revit to co-author multi-discipline Revit models and are storing your project data in BIM 360 Team, you may continue to use both for ongoing projects with uninterrupted access for as long as you renew. However, data from BIM 360 Team will remain separate from the new BIM 360 platform.
Which Revit versions will work with Collaboration for Revit and BIM 360 Design?
BIM 360 Design can be used with Revit 2018.3 and later versions.

What is the difference between the Autodesk BIM 360 products, and how does one determine which product to use during the different stages of a project? Before we can answer that question, first you must know what BIM 360 is.
BIM 360 products are construction management software that enable you almost anytime, anywhere access to project data throughout the building construction life-cycle. BIM 360 empowers those in the field to better anticipate and act, and those in the back office to optimize and manage all aspects of construction performance.
Autodesk has 7 products included in the BIM 360 family, each product focusing on a different solution. The list below has really helped me make sense of it all and understand how each one can help improve the project workflow:
|Connect and collaborate with multi-discipline design teams for improved project delivery (formerly known as BIM 360 Team and Collaboration for Revit).|
|Construction document management built for project team. Keep your team on-track with the latest construction drawings, documents, and models.|
|Streamline VDC & BIM pre-construction workflows through the acceleration of model coordination and clash detection.|
|Extend the benefits of your BIM 360 Glue subscription by connecting a coordinated model to the construction layout process to improve the accuracy.|
|Build more reliable project work plans and reduce waste associated with overproduction, excess inventory and task rework.|
|Improve construction quality control and job-site safety with cloud-based checklists, equipment tracking, tasks, issues, and daily reports (formerly known as BIM 360 Field).|
|Maintenance management solution. Begin operations on day one and better meet the needs of your mobile workforce.|
Each of these products is specifically designed to help connect project teams during different stages of the design and construction process.
If you’re still not sure which product is the right fit for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Happy collaborating 🙂
