The time it takes to make important design decisions can often slow down or even stop the work being done on a project. Fortunately, BIM 360 Team makes it possible to collaborate anytime, from anywhere. Using the mobile app, (supporting both iOS and Android devices) team members have continuous access to projects, and can share ideas or ask/answer questions even when out of the office. This week we’ll explore a couple workflows demonstrating how BIM 360 Team can be leveraged remotely.
First of all, BIM 360 Team includes a Live Review feature that allows team members to collectively view and comment on plan sheets and models. When launched, the host is provided a hyperlink that serves as the “invitation” to the meeting. Anyone who is sent this hyperlink can then join the session using a web browser, smartphone, or tablet. Using Live Review helps ensure design decisions (and directions) are clear, because everyone is reviewing the same area of the design.
In addition, the BIM 360 Team mobile app allows team members to review, markup, and comment on plan sheets and models even when they are working off-site. As a side note, taking advantage of the mobile app can also provide additional benefits such as camera access and hands free typing.
If you are interested, I’ve created a couple quick videos that walk through each of these concepts.
