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

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.
