Collaborate in the cloud: A360 Collaboration for Revit or BIM360 Glue?

At first glance, it doesn’t seem all that easy to tell the difference between the two products. I was actually asked several questions on this topic at our last Autodesk launch events in June. So, here’s the difference !

Autodesk A360 Collaboration for Revit: model from anywhere

Scenario 1: You’re working on a BIM project along with several other firms. All stakeholders are working from their respective offices, each with their own server. How do you “share” the work using Revit sub-projects?

With A360 Collaboration for Revit, the project teams connect to and access the centralized BIM project data in the cloud. Using the Revit software and the A360 Collaboration for Revit app, team members can work on Revit models no matter where they are, with the cloud acting as a replacement for their internal server! A360 Collaboration for Revit makes everything transparent for the user.

Autodesk BIM360 Glue: share with everyone

Scenario 2: You’re working on the design and construction of a building but you need to regularly integrate your models, including non-Revit data, into a global federated model. You’d also like to be able to access the model from the work site and share it with multiple stakeholders who don’t have Revit.

BIM 360 Glue is a cloud-based BIM product that connects the members of your project team and streamlines the BIM workflow, from the preconstruction stage through to actual construction. From practically anywhere, you can access the most recent models and data, throughout the project lifecycle. BIM 360 Glue lets you consult projects and resolve coordination problems faster, while advancing the construction layout process.



In conclusion, both products can be used separately or simultaneously: they meet different needs. A360 Collaboration for Revit is helpful for technicians creating models in Revit at separate sites, while BIM 360 Glue allows users to share a model (Revit or other) in the cloud to coordinate with stakeholders who don’t have access to design tools.

There you have it!
