There are multiple avenues of sharing and collaboration for models and information. The advantages/disadvantages of each and how to perform even the most basic of tasks requires extensive training and mentoring for even the most advanced of users. There are many enormous limitations and constraints to BIM 360 that are not immediately obvious and even contrary to published marketing materials and even product naming. Development cycles of the product are seemingly monthly, but incredibly minor. This makes the desperately-needed and glaringly obvious massive usability, capability, and performance improvements into deal-breakers and hair pulling events. Change cannot come fast enough. There are no integrations into Microsoft's Azure AD SSO or other 3rd party SSOs available for SMBs. This makes the provided MFA a huge headache for all SMBs. There are no integrations into the Microsoft 365 ecosystem for SharePoint/OneDrive or Outlook. This is desperately needed for most organizations using Bim360.,2,It has had a positive impact in allowing us to collaborate on Revit models with other organizations.

At the moment, we are running Bim360 Docs and Bim360 Field for 2 building projects, which is getting more and more benefits from one of the most useful CDE platforms. Bim360 is used by project team members. This helps us to share our BIM models and drawings to shareholders, review, and get the thing in right without any clashes prior to carry out on-site.

From that recorded data every day, the company/project safety system will be definitely improved.

The main issue BIM360 is addressing for us is the ability to have live updates between files. The communicator feature gives us the ability to monitor who is in a file and what activity they are accomplishing. Some of the other features allow for non-Revit users to review and comment on documents during the design process as well.,Live updates between design teams. This keeps the team up to date for quicker design and frees up personnel from having to do file transfers. The cloud-based platform gives your company a little bit of a break on computer requirements. Allows multiple offices and/or cloud-based consultants to collaborate on a design as if they are one office or one company.,The ability to rebuild a model cannot be done. You have to rename the original file and then reload a new model. When you roll back your file using history, it deletes all the history back to the rollback. It would be nice if all it did was bring the history file up to the current. It would be nice for your files to automatically update to BIM360.,6,We are able to complete a design quicker. The fact that your files are not on your servers. Anytime that the Autodesk servers go down you are down; it does not happen very often but when it does there is nothing you can do about it except wait. Because of how BIM360 licensing is setup it does force you to manage the personnel on a project closer. This can at times be viewed as a negative but in the long run is positive because with better management comes better profit.,Dropbox and Citrix ShareFile,Trello, Bluebeam Revu, Concur ExpenseVietnamese Construction Company review of Bim360COFICO is using Bim360 across whole organization.

We have our modeling departments resolve conflicts between trades and then by building off the models that we access in the field using BIM360. This helps us to get everything in right and without any conflicts the first time and it saves us bundles of time in our schedule. We also use BIM360 for our quality control particularly during the constructions progress to cut down on the amount of punch list items that would need to be addressed at the end of the project.This saves us time and money as we are often able to catch issues early on before the small problems grow into the big expensive ones.,Model integration and field viewing Quality Control Checklists Issue creation and distribution,Drawing viewing and storage Issue notifications and reminders Daily Reports,9,It saves us time and money on our quality control It helps us deliver better products to the owners and as a result win more work for them It is simple and easy to use and it saves us time and money in training our crews,Procore,Bluebeam Revu, Procore, Oracle Primavera Portfolio ManagementBim360 for BeginnersThis program is being used in a few different aspects of the company. Areas where we used BIM360 was first on the web platform where we would store drawings, inspections and observations for each job. This would allow us to house the most up-to-date drawings, overlay new drawings when they were issued and record QA/QC that could be directly associated with the drawings. We would also use the web for a directory of everyone on the job to help with communication purposes. Additionally, the app would come into play when we were doing safety audits, the follow up from those audits and looking at drawings in the field. Being able to access the drawings in the field helped with more than just construction. We would incorporate Punchlist, where we could mark up exact locations with attached pictures to show previous conditions vs final conditions. We would also incorporate some phasing and logistical plans that could be shown in the field, updated and modified. Overall, it helped address coordination and communication between the field, ownership and contractor.,Not a thing, as so much as a well developed interface. For those of whom struggle with technology the interface is pretty straight forward with very little room to get lost. Offline compatibility. It allows for usage in the field where there typically isn't wifi, so you can get work down or communication shown on the drawings, inspection or anything else set up on your system and sync when you get into wifi. Practically real time changes. Ability to edit. The format to set up your docs, edit the drawings and make this platform your own tool is incredible.,They need to ability to link drawings with in the platform, that is very frustrating. Overall more linking abilities to cut down on back and forth from webpages. A better editing feature for meeting minutes and exporting all reports, very cookie cutter like.,7,Positively we use for all safety items, so its potential to save money is really something cannot be quantified. It has helped document trends, big items leading trends and odd ball cases which overall helps perfecting process to eliminate those trends and save time. Negative impact is we need to pay for another program to handle budget, submittals and bidding so we are paying for two systems and paying for all employees to learn each system and possible make errors since there are differences in the systems.,Procore and Prolog,Procore

Bim360 is well suited for collaboration of Revit models with other organizations. It is not appropriate for much else in its current state, but the potential for greatness is there for many aspects of project management and CA.

It is great to track punch list items and closeout issues. It is good for infield use and is an easy to use app. We rely on the software not only for clash detection, but also for visually communicating information to clients in an easy to understand manner. I have not personally used the software for commissioning, but I am interested in trying it so we
can link to our 360 Glue Revit models.

  • Well-integrated with BIM softwares from Autodesk, keeps the BIM workflow run well from design to construction on site
  • A lot of great features and functions as per each Bim360 software
  • Ability to customize for our own format on checklist, drawings, etc.
  • Need more link-able options between all softwares in Bim360
  • Need to improve performance with huge data models on mobile devices
  • Need the ability to share licenses between all softwares in Bim360
Good for
  • Viewing drawings and BIM models on the field across all shareholders
  • Systematic QA/QC and safety checklists
  • Auto-generating reports for better improvement
  • Reducing paperwork
It is not suitable for tender, though.

  • It would be nice for your files to automatically update to BIM360.
The best scenario BIM360 is suited for is when you have multiple consultants working on a project. Another good time is when you use a sub-consultant on a project and the sub-consultant needs live access to the files. A scenario where it is less appropriate is when the design team is in the company or when live updates are not necessary.

  • Model integration and field viewing
  • Quality Control Checklists
  • Issue creation and distribution
  • Drawing viewing and storage
  • Issue notifications and reminders
  • Daily Reports
I think BIM360 is an excellent tool for quality control and in field model viewing for construction purposes. The checklists, issue generation and punchlist tools are amazing and you would be hard pressed to find a better quicker and simpler software for these tools. The daily reports and drawing storage and viewing are not BIM360's strongest fields.
