BIM 360: BIM in the Cloud

Posted in Civil 3D with tags , , , , , on June 18, 2012 by Kyle Nishioka

So I woke up at 5 a.m. to catch Autodesk’s webinar about BIM 360. My first impression is that BIM360 is going to be the preferred way to publish completed designs to your project team. The integration of Navisworks and Infrastructure Modeler into Autodesk’s cloud services is a natural fit to round out their Design Suites. Create a Civil Infrastructure model for feasibility analysis or conceptual presentation and push it up to the cloud for others to view and comment on it. Then pull the revisions back to your desktop. Sounds pretty cool and it’s definitely worth checking out, however I just can’t see it being a big part of my workflow. The Navisworks sharing to the cloud looks more promising for my day-to-day work. If a design team could push a model of their progress sets up to the cloud and create a cloud-based Navisworks clash detection report, that would would certainly be worth pursuing.

Anyway, check out this series of videos demonstrating BIM 360.
