Effective Design Process with team collaboration

Design Collaboration Module

BIM 360 Design Collaboration allows controlled cloud worksharing in multi-discipline projects including milestone tracking and deliverable coordination. Here’s an overview of the main features and functionality:

Project Admin

  • Quickly set up teams by user, role, or company
  • Easily define data workspaces, i.e. a separate workspace for internal design development and a shared folder for data that other teams can reference and use
  • Use more granular file- and folder-based permissions and access controls, if desired

Controlled Worksharing

  • Enable multiple users to co-author Revit models with Revit cloud worksharing
  • Extend worksharing to project teams in any location, while centralizing efforts of distributed teams
  • Manage 2D sheets and 3D models in a central repository
  • Better allocate resources and assign the best team members with the most relevant skill sets to each project
  • Control and manage Work In Progress data exchange so that only reviewed information is shared with other teams

Deliverable Coordination & Milestone Tracking

  • Track project progress in a shared project timeline
  • Easily understand the current state of the project model in an aggregated view
  • Exchange curated packages containing Revit sets & project models between teams
  • Reduce rework with trackable activity recorded for all teams
  • Enable transparency and ensure accountability for deadlines and milestones.

Model Navigation & Understanding In Context

  • Explore and understand the project model aggregated with other collaboration teams’ models.
  • Navigate and view the project model as teams think about data – in building levels, project phases, or collaboration teams.

Change Visualization

  • Enable change visualization with one click on any BIM artifact contained in a package.
  • Easily compare differences between versions of Revit models or views shared between project lead and consultants.
  • Explore shared deliverables before accepting into your team’s space to understand how new design information will impact work in progress.
