Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the project, part of Learning BIM 360 Field.
- [Narrator] The first step in creating any BIM 360 project, be it Field or Glue, we need to log in to our BIM 360 account, and actually start a project. You first have to get an account from your reseller, and then once they set you up, it will be https//b2.autodesk.com. Once you get there of course you have to sign in. I go to Next, type in your password. I always stay signed in, now I'm gonna sign in. Now that I'm signed in, what we will see is all of our different items that we have.
I'd like to go to the BIM 360 Account Admin. Now that we're in our account admin, I'd like to start a new project. So under Project Directory, let's just click Add right here. For my project name, I'm gonna call it 360 Field Project. The Project Type, I suppose I'll make it an Office, Construction Type, the one I'm actually using is a Renovation. You can put any project value you want in there. I'm gonna say it's $100.
Notice that once I typed in 100 point zero zero, it didn't like it, so I'll just put in 100. Project value is valid. Contract Type, this one's Design-Bid-Build. Project Start Date, I'll go with June 24th, and then I am going to end it in 2019. Project Job Number, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven. We don't have to worry about the business unit.
If you wanna find a Project Image you can go ahead and browse for it, but you can leave it blank if you want. And I won't worry too much about my Project Address. Now I'd like to Save and Continue. Now here you have a choice to activate some services. I'd like to activate Glue. I'll go with Glue Classic. I'm gonna put my name in there. I'm gonna put my company in there, C and S Companies, I'll save that. Now on to Activate BIM 360 Field.
Now over here, I'm going to put my name in again, my company. I'm gonna save it, I'm gonna let it activate. Now I'm gonna finish. So there we go, that's how we start a BIM 360 project, and to activate the different services.
