    BIM360 Design with wider team

    Hi all,

    We have used the C4R and A360 teams on previous projects and it seemed to work well. Moving forward to the new BIM360 Design platform i was wondering how this works with teams that do not have or do not want to obtain a license? This could be because their time is limited on the project or that they simply dont want to pay the cost, whatever, some teams just wont be a part of the new platform / workflow.

    In the old system you could upload a file from non team members and have the wider team see them. is this still the case in the new platform? If so is there any documentation around?

    Cheers

    No documentation needed. Just means someone who DOES have a license has to periodically upload the other consultants model. So the architecture team (on bim360) can upload the lighting consultants (not on bim360) model, as an architecture model.

    It's just extra work for the architecture team to do it.

    Revit 2019.2 also has a new feature/capability called Revit Cloud Model

    Revit Cloud Model

    Allows a non-workshared local model to be saved directly to a BIM 360 project, which can then be linked to other Revit projects via BIM 360. You only need a BIM 360 Docs license to do this, instead of the more expensive BIM 360 Design license needed to make a Cloud-workshared Revit model.

    This also works for Revit LT 2019.2 and later. You can get it here on a 30-Day trial:

    https://www.autodesk.com/bim-360/pla...ment-software/

    After that, It's less than $7 (US) per week per user for BIM 360 Docs. For about another $10 (US) - $17 per week, you can get BIM 360 Design...

    Hi All,

    Is there any standard (Autodesk issued) IT architecture setup guide for BIM 360 design setup for a large project with large teams? Mainly like bandwidth per user, internet speed etc. If so, I would appreciate if you can point me to the guide.

    I doudt you'll get anything more than basic how-to's from anyone, for free.
    We had in-office training sessions from an Autodesk certified consultant when we first started with BIM360. Money and time well spent. Setup with project teams is also available. Your reseller should be able to point you in the right direction or you could search https://servicesmarketplace.autodesk.com

    Basically...don't run on dial-up, don't work over wireless, and get the fastest connection you can afford. If you have 15+ people connecting and you have a basic service package for internet, you are probably going to hate life.

    Here's a link to the Getting Started Guide for BIM 360 Design:

    https://knowledge.autodesk.com/suppo...g-Started.html

    Also, there is a Webinar on Tuesday March 12, 2019 at 1pm EST that is titled “BIM 360 Design for Advanced User" You could ask these types of questions to the presenters. Register here: https://autode.sk/2TiUZWT

    Thank you all for your responses. Thanks Scott for sharing the webinar link..will definitely connect and ask this query.
    However, it would great to have a std IT architecture setup guide/recommendation published by Autodesk. Currently we have a large project with 40+ concurrent users working Revit files in the cloud and as Michael says above...people hate life at work!!!
