Platforms for BIM Collaborate and BIM Collaborate Pro
Autodesk Construction Cloud
Autodesk Construction Cloud is a cloud-based construction management and collaboration solution that unifies existing and new offerings under one brand. Autodesk Docs is the common data environment for projects in Autodesk Construction Cloud that aren't hosted on BIM 360. Both BIM Collaborate and BIM Collaborate Pro support projects on ACC and BIM 360.
BIM 360 is the cloud-based platform that brings together legacy products Design, Coordinate, Glue, Field, Team, Layout, and Ops. It's based on the BIM 360 Docs common data environment.
Comparison of ACC and BIM 360 user interfaces
To determine which environment your project is hosted in, look at the user interface. ACC is light and BIM 360 is dark.
- Product picker: Toggle to the module you want to work with.
- Account selector: Toggle between different accounts and projects you have access to, or search for a project.
- Help menu and Autodesk Profile: Find resources, including forums, support, the Learning Panel, and your Autodesk ID profile.
Note: In ACC projects, modules appear in a list. In BIM 360 projects, modules appear in a grid.
