Autodesk is re-envisioning itConstruction Cloud services, creating a convergence of multiple platforms that currently operate individually to become a more inclusive unified platform. The goal is to connect these services so that they communicate with Autodesk’s new Common Data Environment (CDE) called Autodesk Docs. 

Autodesk’s new construction cloud offerings include Autodesk Docs, BIM Collaborate, and BIM Collaborate Pro.  What does this mean for you and your users? See below to explore the changes you can expect based on your current subscription and the enhancements you need to know about today.

  2. Project Admins will have the ability to choose between platforms when creating a new project.
  3. Your data isn’t going anywhere & you can keep your workflow the same.
  4. Currently, there’s no way to migrate projects from BIM 360 Design to the new Construction Cloud platform, but Autodesk is working on creating a tool and process for this migration.
    1. If you’re new to BIM Collaboration, feel free to choose your platform.
    2. If you’re an existing BIM 360 Design user, we recommend staying in the current platform to avoid splitting your projects.
