Autodesk Unveils BIM 360 Docs to Enhance Construction Document Management

By CIOReview | Wednesday, January 6, 2016

LAS VEGAS, NV: Autodesk, a multinational software corporation, has launched BIM 360 Docs to advance construction document management. 

Formerly known as Project Alexandria, BIM 360 Docs is a widespread, cloud-based service for the construction industry that offers a virtual workspace to create, access, maintain, markup and share 2D and 3D project documents, plans and models. “A comprehensive solution is long overdue, and the delay has cost the construction trades too much money and too much time. Autodesk saw the challenge, owns the expertise, and is delivering a powerful step forward for the industry,” states Amar Hanspal, senior vice president, Products, Autodesk.

Built to save time, Autodesk BIM 360 Docs enables businesses to reduce risk and errors in construction projects. It ensures that the whole project team is building from the correct version of documents and plans.

In addition, with the collaborative, real-time access, the new service connects construction project team members to construction documents throughout the project lifecycle. It features linked 3D and 2D experience, which allows users to interact with models in 2D views and visualize them in 3D on the same page, and vice-versa; permission-based access control and approval processes to manage the updating and release of documents, preventing project teams from working from out-of-data information.

BIM 360 Docs also offers blazing-fast viewing experience for large-formal PDF design documents, optimized for Apple and iOS devices; and mechanized organization of original and updated construction docs into sets, consisting highly accurate and modified optical character recognition (OCR) of title blocks.
