On June 18, 2012, the software company Autodesk announced its unveiling of Autodesk BIM 360. Autodesk BIM 360 is considered the next generation of Building Information Modeling, or “BIM.” Many believe this development is serving to reinforce Autodesk’s position of leadership in the construction, design and civil infrastructure industries. Between live support and a comprehensive FAQ section, clients are well served in terms of customer support for Autodesk products.
The Autodesk, Inc. company is a leader in 3D and building design as well as engineering and entertainment software. Its clients include customers from the building, construction, architecture and manufacturing sectors as well as from the media and entertainment industries. They have provided services to the last 17 consecutive Academy Award winners for the category of Best Visual Effects.
Autodesk’s clients use their intuitive and innovative software to visualize new projects, stimulate creativity as well as design and flesh out new ideas. Since its creation and introduction of its AutoCAD software back in 1982, the Autodesk company has continued to develop premiere, cutting-edge design software on a global scale.
The new Autodesk BIM 360 features a set of cloud computing services that allow for 24/7 access to BIM project data throughout every phase of a project. It integrates seamlessly with the other BIM solutions for construction, design and operations, including the popular Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suites and Autodesk Building Design Suites of products.
Autodesk feels that the addition of cloud computing will help them offer their customers a more integrated way of being able to work with their colleagues, co-workers, vendors, business partners, clients and other interested parties. They believe Autodesk BIM 360 could actually revolutionize the way the construction design, infrastructure and engineering unfolds.
Autodesk BIM 360 does a great job of bringing the Building Information Modeling process to the cloud. The cloud based additions allow for multi-user and multi-discipline collaboration in a way that was never possible before. Coordination of ideas and intelligent data exchange via the cloud is likely to transform the way contractors, architects and engineers are able to work together in real time and also manage civil infrastructure and building construction data.
The Autodesk BIM 360 software will allow transportation and urban planning professionals as well as civil engineers the ability to collaborate even if they are located in different parts of the world. It will allow a team to review and explore feasibility evaluations, review ideas and create proposals for new projects any time of day, even from different geographic locations.
This new product expansion marks a significant development in the world of Autodesk 360 software. Cloud computing will allow users to tap into and benefit from the vast computing power of the cloud and enjoy even more dynamic features included with the Autodesk BIM 360 update. Now contributors to all phases of a building project can stay on the same page and communicate through every phase. The result will likely be a more streamlined, efficient and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
