This solution is an extension of Autodesk 360, a cloud-based platform that enables customers to join the vast computing power available in the cloud to transform the way they design, visualize and simulate their ideas and share their work.
The company officials explained that the new solution, Autodesk BIM 360 offers a variety of cloud services, enabling anytime, anywhere access to BIM project information throughout the project lifecycle. It works with BIM solutions for design, construction and operations including the Autodesk Building Design Suite and Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite. BIM works like a 3D model--based process that assists in creating and managing building and civil infrastructure projects faster, more economically, and with less environmental impact.
“Cloud-connected workflows are giving our customers worldwide a better way to work with colleagues across their organizations and with business partners, clients and stakeholders," said Amar Hanspal, Autodesk senior vice president, information modeling products. "Autodesk BIM 360, the next generation of BIM, will revolutionize the way building and infrastructure owners, designers, engineers and contractors create, share and use project information."
This solution is a boon to civil engineers, transportation and urban planning professionals to collaborate between geographically dispersed teams in the cloud and can explore design concepts, create and review proposals and conduct feasibility evaluations, according to the company.
"Time is money, especially in the construction world and every owner wants more value for their money. Autodesk BIM 360 is a key tool that helps us accomplish this," said Weston Tanner, Virtual Construction manager, The Walsh Group.
The company is currently selling Autodesk BIM 360 in English, and soon will be available in other languages. Some services may be available exclusively for Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2013 and Autodesk Building Design Suite 2013 subscription customers.
