Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video What is BIM 360?, part of BIM Manager: Managing BIM 360.
- [Instructor] So, what is BIM 360? That's a good question, is it actually called BIM 360, or is it A360? Is it Glue or maybe Field? Is it the cloud? That's it, it's the cloud, right? Here's what it is. BIM 360 is a suite of Autodesk web-based applications that utilize the cloud. That being said, for a long time we in the AEC industry have been looking for a way to collaborate across multiple firms, over state borders, and across oceans as if we were working in the same building on the same server.
That's what we're talking about here. It's about collaboration and accessibility to the same data source without redundancy. Autodesk 360 is the first real solution I've seen that's doing just that. So let's take a look at some quick points. What is BIM 360? It's a big confusing picture I think. Well, to start with, it utilizes the cloud. It's a suite of Autodesk software. As I mentioned, it gains us accessibility to the same data that was once distributed across different companies in different manners.
We can now collaborate as one team using the cloud and using the Autodesk suite of software to access it, one data source. So at the end of the day, just a quick disclaimer here. I'm not a reseller, nor am I trying to get you to buy anything here. This course is intended to break down how to get this BIM cloud into your firm and how to get it working.
