Autodesk has released BIM 360 which it describes as the next generation of Building Information Modelling.
The program offers civil engineers, transportation and urban planning professionals new cloud-based services to collaborate between geographically dispersed teams to explore design concepts, create and review proposals and conduct feasibility evaluations.
Autodesk BIM 360 will work with BIM solutions for design, construction and operations including the Autodesk Building Design Suite and Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite.
Better way to work
“Cloud-connected workflows are giving our customers worldwide a better way to work with colleagues across their organisations and with business partners, clients and stakeholders,” said Autodesk senior vice president, information modelling products Amar Hanspal.
“Autodesk BIM 360 will revolutionise the way building and infrastructure owners, designers, engineers and contractors create, share and use project information.”
Autodesk recently bought Vela Systems, a provider of cloud and mobile field management software. It believes Vela technology with Autodesk BIM 360 will bring the BIM process to the project site, helping contractors to automate site processes such as quality, safety and commissioning checklists and distribution of plans and drawings.
