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.

SharpeSoft Estimator

SharpeSoft [is] designed to be a day-to-day hard-bid estimating program. It is easy to learn and use, yet very powerful. I would not recommend this product to hourly service providers.

SharpeSoft Estimator

  • Handles complex bid formats and bid submittal structures such as using bid alternates and non-tax bid schedules.

  • This software is reasonably priced, but very powerful.
  • Project support is timely, intimate, local and professional.

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.

  • They need to put a search bar in the item master list so you can easily find work items.
  • They could make the alternate package easier to use.
  • The should find a way to allow the user to define at least one cost type in the program.

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.

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.
