Collaboration for Revit is now BIM 360 Design

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:

  • Access controls by user, role, or company, and file- and folder-based permissions
  • Issue management
  • Tracking and deliverable coordination
  • Change visualization
  • Unlimited storage

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.

  • With Revit 2015-2018.2, you can use cloud worksharing in Collaboration for Revit (with BIM 360 Team for data management).
  • With Revit 2018.3, you can cloud workshare in both Collaboration for Revit (with BIM 360 Team for data management) on current projects. You can also use BIM 360 Design.
  • With Revit 2019, cloud worksharing will only work with BIM 360 Design (with data management on the new BIM 360 platform).

Autodesk BIM 360 Comparison

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:

BIM 360 Design  Connect and collaborate with multi-discipline design teams for improved project delivery (formerly known as BIM 360 Team and Collaboration for Revit).
BIM 360 Docs Construction document management built for project team. Keep your team on-track with the latest construction drawings, documents, and models.
BIM 360 Glue Streamline VDC & BIM pre-construction workflows through the acceleration of model coordination and clash detection.
BIM 360 Layout Extend the benefits of your BIM 360 Glue subscription by connecting a coordinated model to the construction layout process to improve the accuracy.
BIM 360 Plan Build more reliable project work plans and reduce waste associated with overproduction, excess inventory and task rework.
BIM 360 Build 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).
BIM 360 Ops 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.
