Success Plan: Model Co-authoring for Buildings Maturity 1

Course | Outcomes and capabilities
The ability of members of a design team to collaborate securely in real-time on design models, while working remotely from a wide variety of locations, with simplified workflows and centralized data.
Outline

The ability of members of a design team to collaborate securely in real-time on design models, while working remotely from a wide variety of locations, with simplified workflows and centralized data.

  • Do you want to use local worksharing on isolated projects within network or in a cloud environment?
  • Do you wish your model co-authoring, development were such that repeating the same steps is possible for wider adoption across the organization? Do you want alignment of standards for teams, linking, review etc?
  • Do you need multi-team / multi-discipline collaboration on multiple model files in cloud solutions, utilising team controls and permissions, issue management, mark-ups and version control?
  • Are you able to work through complex standards issues with high level of inter-dependency of capabilities?
  • Do you want state of the art practices and maximizing impact of business outcomes and values around model co-authoring?

Any of the modules in this course will help you accomplish any of the objectives above. Simply get started in the module of your choice depending upon the technology that your team has access to.

Course modules

~15 min.
Share Civil 3D Surfaces with Revit Using BIM 360
Module

Sharing design models between the architect and civil engineer helps reduce rework and improves collaboration. Use BIM 360 to share surface data after setting the geospacial coordinates for the project.

~35 min.
Import Civil 3D Surfaces and Site Information into Revit
Module

Importing a Civil 3D TOPO surface and site information into Revit allows you to see how the building will look in context with its surroundings. In this module, you learn how to take advantage of work already done by the surveyor and/or civil engineer, saving you time in recreating their work.

~20 min.
Coaching: Upload/Share Project Models Using Autodesk BIM Collaborate
Module

Uploading and sharing project files is the first step in establishing a successful document management process for your project. It is essential to assign permission levels appropriately to ensure the right people have access to the right information inside Autodesk BIM Collaborate. In this module, you learn how to share your project models with other Teams using Autodesk BIM Collaborate.

~30 min.
Coordinate Designs Across Disciplines by Setting the Shared Coordinates
Module

Set up the shared coordinates at the beginning of the project to reduce design errors and make collaboration easier across disciplines. In this module, you learn what questions to ask in order to define the project coordinates. Then, you add the shared coordinates to the Revit model to ensure everything lines up across disciplines and design firms.

~15 min.
Efficiently Share Your Model with the Entire Project Team Using BIM Collaborate
Module

BIM Collaborate is an efficient way to share your design with the entire team. In this module, you learn how to upload your model to BIM 360 to monitor changes to elements in a multi-discipline project in the cloud and identify potential issues.

~1 hr. 20 min.
Coaching: How to: Collaborate in BIM Collaborate Pro (Part 1)
Module

Learn how to package, link, and publish Revit® models in BIM Collaborate Pro.

Topics include:
  • Quick BIM Collaborate Pro Preview 
  • Understand Linking Methods for Cloud Initiated Revit Models 
~1 hr.
Coaching: How to: Collaborate in BIM Collaborate Pro (Part 2)
Module

Learn advanced file sharing workflows in BIM Collaborate Pro, including data exchange, hyper-model navigation, and how to create and review issues.

~45 min.
Coaching: How to: Collaborate in BIM Collaborate Pro (Part 3)
Module

Review best practices for collaborating in BIM Collaborate Pro and learn how to backup and recover files and troubleshoot issues.

~25 min.
Create the Sub-structure
Module

In this module, you will learn how to get model building foundations ready for structural analysis by starting with the bearing walls in the foundation. Next, add isolated foundation pads with and without piers. Complete the sub-structure model with strip foundations underneath the bearing walls.

~25 min.
Create the Super-structure
Module

In this module, you will learn how to select which walls and floors are to be considered part of the structural frame, from the architect’s model, and copy them over to the structural model. You will then learn how to add the building core, beams, columns, and braces.

~15 min.
Navisworks to BIM 360 Integration
Module

The focus of this module is integration of Navisworks and BIM 360 Issues. This extends the workflow support for BIM 360 issues to desktop-centric VDC / BIM coordination workflows.

~1 hr.
Coaching: Introduction to: BIM Collaborate Pro
Module

Get familiar with BIM Collaborate Pro features and workflows, including account and project administration, Revit® cloud worksharing, document management, design collaboration, and model coordination.

~30 min.
Coaching: How to: Start and Administer a Project in BIM Collaborate Pro
Module

Learn how to administer the BIM 360® account site and start a BIM Collaborate Pro project.

~15 min.

~30 min.
Allowing Multiple Users Access to a Revit Model Using Worksharing
Module

There is a trick to allowing everyone to work in one model without overwriting what someone else has done. Share one central Revit model with a wide team using worksharing.

~35 min.
