Autodesk

AutoCAD 360 has multiple functionalities that adapt to circumstantial conditions. It has a focus on available tools at all times and deserves to be updated to be at the forefront of technological platforms. It is very useful in some aspects of functionality to have access to less dense and capable tools to develop environments and improve visualization.

Easy to use, one-stop for all construction-related tasks. The best thing is the split-screen, during the Bill of Quantity verification users can see for what part of the design Bill of Quantity is generated. Auto-updating of Design is another good feature.

Pros

Autodesk

  • Allows our entire design team to share and review information graphically in one location (cloud-based).
  • Has the capability to fluidly interact with many other Autodesk software products.
  • Being able to use AutoCAD 360 on the iPad is a great feature without having to install the software.

  • Allows multiple users to work on the same estimate at once. This is huge!! Not only can we team up on a project that has a quick deadline but we can also simultaneously collaborate on database updates.
  • Performs your takeoff on CAD drawings or vector PDFs. Your typical takeoff software does takeoff on an unintelligent PDF. I say unintelligent because the process you go through is simply to trace the boundaries of your shape. This is time-consuming and can lead to mistakes. With CostX your cursor will stick to the line lines and takeoff the exact measurement. This has cut our takeoff time by 75%. The best part is that this is done in the same software as your estimating software. There are a few software's that have takeoff and estimating in one but CostX is the only one the provides CAD smart takeoff.
  • CostX is a lot like Excel. You have the flexibility to set up your workbooks the way your project team thinks. For example, ours is set up to evaluate labor in two ways; productivity (man-hours per widget) or crew hours (3 guys for two days for a given activity).
  • Reports are very flexible and the report writers is much easier than Crystal reports.
  • If you subscribe to the full version of CostX this provides the most powerful feature of them all......Auto-Revisioning. This function will compare two sets of drawings, identify the changes on a color coded drawing, ask for you to approve the changes and then update your estimate and takeoff. You can even use this to produce custom print outs for RFI's show your design team what changed.
  • Your estimating workbooks are live-linked to your takeoff. As you make adjustments to your takeoff your estimate updates accordingly. The workbook has color coded text to hep your team understand whats behind your estimate; Black = manually input, Blue = rates linked to database, and Green = quantity linked to take-off.
  • Full integrated subcontractor comparison. We use to do this in excel to compare multiple bidders across every division.
  • This is also color coded for a streamlined review process; green = quote, blue = estimate, purple = plug, and orange = other.
  • Built in error checking notifies you if you forgot to normalize an item on your subcontractor comparison.
  • In the near future the software will be available online allowing you to use remotely.

Cons

Autodesk

  • It'd be nice to be able to use AutoCAD 360 to leave comments on peoples files, such as being able to annotate a certain part of it and mark it for review, so then its author can look at the note and make necessary changes.

  • iTwo Costx has 3D features that may require enhancement in terms of Look and feel perspective.
  • The eye Function section view feature may require enhancement. But I am not sure how much more we can bring it to scale
  • Not seen Cloud base service. So that easy to use from any where.

    Likelihood to Renew

    Autodesk

    This is so useful so we would like to keep renewing as Autocad 360 does. In fact we are very optimistic about the tools that come in every renewal because we will then have even more features available.

    Alternatives Considered

    Autodesk

    Although there are lots of alternatives to AutoCAD mobile on the Google play store and the app store, many of these alternatives are not professionally developed and are associated with shady developers. So there might be a privacy or security risk with the usage these alternatives. However, DWG FastView is a worthy competing alternative.

    We are not aware of another software that has fully integrated take-off, subcontractor comparison, estimating and reporting besides CostX.

    Return on Investment

    Autodesk

    • ROI is a bit low, because a lot of people are moving to Revit and BIM 360.
    • Not all consultants use CAD so it makes it hard for compatibility.

    Exactal

    • Easy to Collaborate Between the Team members. Saves a lot of work
    • Integrate with multiple types of data drawing which saves efforts in converting the design.
    • Bill of Quantity export can be done based on the Design section and can share with contractors for Quotes. Instead of just downloading the whole report and then editing for the required pack.
