Autodesk launches BIM 360 Docs to help the construction project team collaborate together more effectively. I’ve always liked the idea of everyone having the ability to access all the documents in project. Seems Autodesk has come up with an answer for lost documentation, and which version is the final version. I’ve played a little with this type of service from Autodesk when we tested the C4R and have found it useful, even just with the internal team. I like the fact the contract can check the objects in the Revit model for information rather than hunting down the document. I think this is a step closer to paperless construction, and complete collaboration between all parties on a project.
It also seems that cloud storage is getting closer and close to free, since this service offers unlimited space for the projects in the cloud.
Being able to check, process, and mark-up documents using your tablet on site, sounds like a huge time saver to me. You can play with the Free version on one project, check it out could be pretty cool.
The next step is to get the pricing of these new tools put into the contract. I believe with education and showing the owner a little ROI success for full team collaboration is right around the corner
