Aiming to connect design teams and improve resiliency, the software developer’s offerings include Autodesk Docs and BIM 360 Design.
The following is a Feb. 9 announcement by software developer Autodesk announcing the availability of three new cloud offerings for its AEC design customers. Read about the initial product announcements, made during Autodesk University 2020, here.
Today we release three significant updates to our architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) design customers: Autodesk Docs is included in the AEC Collection, BIM 360 Design is now Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro and Autodesk BIM Collaborate is available globally. Amy Bunszel first announced these cloud offerings for AEC design workflows at Autodesk University 2020, and we’re pleased to make them available today.
Our customers’ needs are constantly evolving, which is more evident today than ever before, and so too must Autodesk’s solutions to meet or stay ahead of these changes. These updates give the AEC design community access to our Autodesk Construction Cloud platform with capabilities tailored to different needs and workflows. In the wake of the unprecedented demands our customers faced in the last year – and continue to face – we are supporting their digital transformation goals by providing access to unlimited cloud storage in Autodesk Docs, our cloud-based common data environment.
“We were already using BIM 360 Design for some projects and realizing the benefits of cloud-enabled, collaborative workflows,” said Michael Hodge, Principal, tvsdesign Architecture & Design. “But when COVID-19 hit and our employees suddenly needed to work from home, we quickly transitioned everything to the cloud to avoid the VPN bottleneck. We’ve been on the lookout for a platform that connects data, tools and project analytics in one place and helps reviewers who don’t use Revit get access to a full view of the Revit model, so we are thrilled about the launch of Autodesk BIM Collaborate and the added value in BIM Collaborate Pro. On top of that, having Autodesk Docs as part of the AEC Collection is also incredibly valuable to allow all team members to collaborate in the cloud by default.”
