Co-Author Revit BIM Models in the Cloud and Get Better BIM Team Collaboration

February 16, 2017

If you’re looking for your investment in BIM to pay off even more, the answer may be in the cloud. That’s because several of the biggest challenges for building design teams can be solved through cloud-based collaboration.

Keeping everyone on the same page in the face of multiple documents and files are two of the top concerns that keep AEC professionals awake at night according to Autodesk sources, here are some more:

• Rework makes up between 5-15% of the total cost of a building project

• 1 in 3 AEC professionals say that using multiple software tools during a design project causes duplication of data

• 60% of major capital programs fail to meet cost and schedule targets

How does the cloud fit into this? Design collaboration in the cloud lets you derive more value from BIM with a single platform that keeps everyone on the same page and streamlines BIM project times – in real-time. It also reduces the complexity and cost of managing on-premise IT systems by replacing it with a shared workspace in the cloud.

Autodesk Collaboration for Revit – a cloud service that works with Revit to enable multi-user co-authoring of BIM models –  and Autodesk BIM 360 Team – a cloud design collaboration platform – is the solution that makes it possible.

With Collaboration for Revit + BIM 360 Team, your models are your workspace centralized in the cloud. There’s no need to co-locate your Revit project teams or to create costly and complicated IT work-arounds to share models, solicit feedback and track the design process. With subscriptions to Collaboration for Revit and BIM 360 Team for cloud worksharing, team members–in all disciplines, from multiple firms or sites world-wide – get centralized access to Revit models.
