Autodesk Bim 360

Bim360 is okay to use in the field. I feel there are far more superior products or software out there to use. Bim360 isn't the easiest to use and takes time to learn. Additionally, flipping through plans is like flipping through a book, it's a slow process unless you know specifically where/what is on each page needed.

I would think that any service or construction outfit could utilize this software effectively.

Cons

Autodesk Bim 360

  • CAD file collaboration is unstable.
  • Can not search the text of drawings or specs to find words. This is a huge deal breaker.
  • Cannot zoom in all the way on the drawing to see details blown up.

  • I use just part of the software, and they frequently enhance the software so I really have no additional needs at this time.

I have not had the opportunity to use the support for Bim360 - this is the reason for only giving it a "1 rating." The general contractor has always answered my related questions and/or concerns when using this program/software. I cannot give an honest opinion on the support function unless I use it. I would hope it would be very supportive such as Fieldwire, Procore, etc.

I would give it a ten, but I had a bad experience with a support person the last time I called, so I'm lowering it to 67%. I am 100% satisfied 2/3rds of the time when I contact support

Alternatives Considered

Autodesk Bim 360

Bim360 is an immature, oversold, and under-delivered product that is simply the only option available for collaboration when you are locked into the Autodesk Revit ecosystem. SharePoint Online, Dropbox Business, and other cloud file management and sharing solutions show you the potential of clouds when they are implemented and deployed correctly, and directly contrasts with the present state of the BIM 360 platform.

I believe Bluebeam Revu has several more bells and whistles compared to Esticom. However I believe the simplicity of Esticom was its biggest selling point to me. It is extremely easy to use and even easier to train others on how to use it. I also believe it has a better price point.
