BIM 360 Glue: Update Roundup

13th November 2015
Posted by James Austin

Updates to our BIM 360 construction software platform are never more satisfying than when they are the direct result of customer input. Thanks to suggestions made by AECOMHolder Construction and others, we’ve released a series of updates for BIM 360 Glue that we think all users ought to know about. 

Here’s a roundup of them all…

Shared Views Integration with Navisworks 2016

Building on the interoperability with BIM 360 Glue, Navisworks 2016 Service Pack 3 now introduces Shared Views integration. Shared Views created in either BIM 360 Glue or Navisworks are synchronized with the project, providing real-time access across clients.

Shared Views created in Navisworks 2016 synchronize the view including the following attributes:

  • Object Visibility (hidden state)
  • Object Overrides (color and transparency)
  • Section Planes and Section Boxes

Improved Loading Times for Complex Merged Models

BIM 360 Glue desktop now provides the option to pre-fetch models, speeding up the merged model loading process.

    my interest is from the perspective of FM and the clients gains in specifying this system

    1. Adam Higgins says:

      Glue is a great tool for collaboration anywhere and by anyone. As it can be accessed in a browser via an email, or on a tablet via the app, it is well suited to ‘clients’ and anyone on the project without deep knowledge of BIM tools. This ease of access allows for interaction and transparency with a skilled design and delivery team collaborating on the BIM 360 platform, without needing specialist training or hardware. With regards to the FM perspective, we see BIM 360 as a platform from which you can manage the data from design into operation, with a toolset designed to enrich project data as it evolves through the construction phase. Most recently we announced Autodesk Building Ops, and BIM 360 is well integrated into that application, demonstrating our commitment to enriching that workflow. Hope that helps set some perspective.

    it would be nice to share Schedules within BIM360 docs.

    is this possible?
