Understanding Autodesk's Packaging Changes to BIM 360

Understanding Autodesk’s New Packaging Changes to BIM 360

Recently Autodesk announced changes to the packaging for BIM 360, their AEC project delivery and construction management platform. BIM 360 supports informed decision-making throughout the project lifecycle, helping lead to more predictable and profitable outcomes.

Beginning on April 9, the BIM 360 platform will be sold in four product offerings: BIM 360 Docs, BIM 360 Design, BIM 360 Glue and BIM 360 Build. In addition, Collaboration for Revit is being repackaged as part of the BIM 360 family to allow for better integration and management capabilities.

While we are changing the product packaging, BIM 360 subscribers will be able to continue to use the products they use today. The new packaging provides BIM 360 subscribers with added capabilities, including the ability manage all project information through a common data platform and access to the next-generation BIM 360 platform modules. Access varies by product subscription and is detailed below.

Current Product

New Product on April 9th

BIM 360 Team

BIM 360 Docs + access to BIM 360 Team for existing subscribers

Collaboration for Revit

BIM 360 Design + access to BIM 360 Team for existing subscribers

BIM 360 Glue

BIM 360 Field

Note that while users will have access to the new packaging, they will also have access to the Classic version that they currently used to.  Access to the classic version is included with their subscription and users have the choice to use either version on their project.

Experience Clemson Project with The Color Lab

[fa icon="calendar'] April 11, 2018 / by TPM Admin posted in Color Lab

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

If you saw last week's post then you now know the perfect place to get all of your Trade Show needs! This week we are going to share with you a fun project that we recently worked on with Experience Clemson located at ONE on Main Street. We decided that the perfect fit for the atmosphere where people gather to experience a glimpse into the excitement that comes from being a part of Clemson would be the SEG Fabric Frames to make a statement and show off the brand. 

If you aren't familiar, SEG stands for Silicone Edge Graphic, which is a high resolution, dye sublimated fabric graphic finished with a thin silicone strip which is inserted into our aluminum frames. These can be used on pop up displays, pull-ups, Charisma Frames and more! A benefit to using dye sublimated fabrics is that it's wrinkle resistant and can also be washed and dry cleaned so you can maintain a new appearance. There are so many options that we offer here at The Color Lab from Wallmount to Floor stand or Backlit, contact us for details so we can help you find the perfect fit for your space! 

Be sure to pop in to Experience Clemson to see our work and to experience running down the hill with the football team, hear the stories of students, alumni and faculty, and discover the history behind some of Clemson’s greatest traditions.

Four Minute Friday: Displaced Elements In Revit

[fa icon="calendar'] April 06, 2018 / by Patrick Hill posted in AEC, Autodesk

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Welcome to this week's Four Minute Friday! Today, we will be talking about displaced elements in Revit. 

Displaced elements in Revit allow you to create exploded views of your design. You can use these displaced elements to better explain the process of construction, or to show elements of design that might otherwise be hidden or unclear. The displaced sets are specific to a view, so you can create presentation views that do not interfere with your documentation views.

Thank you for joining us for today's Four Minute Friday. If you enjoyed today's video, be sure to check out this video where we introduce Revit Live.
