    Default BIM Collaboration and Workflow Options

    Ok... forgive me, but I've been working on one account and one project for a while, and it seems AutoDesk has rebranded all of their collaboration platforms like 5 times since I last pulled my head out of the sand. That project was on a full Collaborate Pro license and was all managed within Construction Cloud. I used the desktop connector to put in all our linked models (there were 2, and we managed access to our model via OUR ACC project.

    Now I'm at a new company, and we are working on a project that requires collaboration with other trades, and have been invited to the project via BIM360 Glue. It's my understanding that this would require me to download the arch/structural/whatever else I need models and link them in manually to then place my objects. Yes? This is my experience with Glue.

    Then what platform would I use to create a model that me and a guy in another office could simultaneously work on? Is that going to require a collaborate license again? BIM 360 seems to not do a THING anymore? I can't even create a project. When I go to the web access for BIM 360, the only project available to me is the one I was invited to by the GC, and I don't have the ADD PROJECT button. Is this something that needs to be permissible via my license?

    Explain it to me like I'm 12. Because every single Youtube tutorial has interfaces that look different that what mine looks like, and they seem to use DOCS and BIM360 interchangeably, all while using ACC to encompass all of it I think? The language is MIND BOGGLINGLY kludgy.

    Thanks in advance.

    Also, that would be twenty-eight up there... not 2 + smiley-face emoji)... that was a lovely surprise.

    The Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC) is a suite of construction management tools. BIM 360 Glue is used for model coordination. To collaborate simultaneously on a model, use Autodesk Revit with a Collaborate Pro license. Access to BIM 360 projects and features depends on your license and permissions granted by the project administrator or company's Autodesk representative.

    The Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC) is a suite of construction management tools that helps teams collaborate and manage projects more effectively. BIM 360 Glue is a specific tool within ACC that is used for model coordination. It allows users to compare and coordinate different versions of a BIM model to ensure that all stakeholders are working from the same information.

    To collaborate simultaneously on a model, you can use Autodesk Revit with a Collaborate Pro license. This will allow you to work on the same model at the same time with other users, and you will be able to see each other's changes in real-time.

    Access to BIM 360 projects and features depends on your license and permissions granted by the project administrator or company's Autodesk representative.

    There are several workflow options available to facilitate BIM collaboration, and the best choice depends on your project's specific needs and team dynamics.

    Here's a breakdown of some popular approaches:

    Cloud-based Platforms:
    BIM 360 Design Collaboration: This is a powerful module within the Autodesk BIM 360 platform that offers a variety of collaboration features. It allows teams to choose their level of data sharing, from constantly synced live linking to controlled sharing with shared and consumed workflows [2]. This flexibility ensures teams can work independently while maintaining project awareness.

    Workflow Considerations:
    Project Team Structure: Think about the size and composition of your team. BIM 360 workflows can be adapted to large, multi-firm projects with various stakeholders.
    Communication Needs: Consider how much real-time communication is required between disciplines. Live linking offers continuous updates, while shared linking provides more control over information flow.
    Desired Level of Control: Some teams might prefer to manage their data closely, while others might prioritize constant collaboration. BIM 360 workflows cater to both preferences with permission controls.
    For a deeper dive into BIM 360 Design Collaboration workflows, you can refer to the Autodesk Help documentation [2] or explore resources like "[YouTube] BIM Collaboration Pro: Overview Workflow for Project Members".

    Remember, the best BIM collaboration workflow is the one that keeps your project on track and fosters efficient communication between everyone involved.
