Overall Satisfaction with Autodesk Bim 360

I used Bim360 as a user on a few projects. This helps us to share our BIM models and drawings to shareholders, review them, and get the thing in right without any clashes prior to carrying it out on-site. We use BIM360 extensively for our coordination work between our subcontractors. We had our modeling departments resolve conflicts between trades and then by building off the models that we access in the field using BIM360. Bim360 is well suited for hosting drawings and sharing normal-sized files with people. This software allows us to quickly find problems and resolve the issues.
  • The feature of Clash control to ensure that all systems are coordinated appropriately is the best one.
  • The Live updates between design teams keep them up to date for quicker design and free up personnel from having to do file transfers.
  • It can store construction data/documents, 3D BIM architectural models, structures & temporary works.
  • This software allows Revit models to be stored and collaborated on in the cloud.
  • This software does not integrate with all other software well.
  • Its not User friendly and you have to invest time to understand it well.
  • This software will help you to streamline costs and optimize your workflows between your project teams.
  • The document feature having all models and documents in one place is also helpful.
  • This software is very helpful to be able to view files remotely, even if the computer does not have the appropriate software installed.
This software streamlines BIM project workflows better than other software. It Saves time, reduces risk, and mitigates errors in construction projects. It will Help to improve quality & safety. The feature of clash detection is the best one and most useful. This software will improve onsite collaboration and communication. It increases your productivity.

Do you think Autodesk Bim 360 delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Autodesk Bim 360's feature set?

Yes

Did Autodesk Bim 360 live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Autodesk Bim 360 go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Autodesk Bim 360 again?

Yes

I used this software almost every day and recommend it to subcontractors all the time. It is best for the design professional and not for the construction professional. Collation of data at project completion was the major benefit of this software which was backed up by the ability to attach evidence at checklist creation. BIM 360 is a building information modeling product that offers to share data and project designs. There is not much that I dislike about this platform at this time but this software can sometimes be very slow when trying to synchronize and that could make you lose time in your design.
