Autodesk BIM 360 Docs, a comprehensive, cloud-based service for the construction industry that provides a virtual workspace to create, access, maintain, mark up, and share 2-D and 3-D project documents, plans, and building information models. The goal is to save time, while also reducing risk and errors in construction projects; it ensures the entire project team is building from the correct version of documents and plans.
Autodesk BIM 360 Docs connects project team members through collaborative, real-time access to construction documents throughout the project lifecycle. Planned capabilities include:
- ability to allow users to interact with models in 2-D and visualize them in 3-D on the same page (or 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and approval processes to manage the updating and release of documents, preventing project teams from working from out-of-date information;
- fast viewing experience for large-format PDF design documents, optimized for Apple iOS devices; and
- automated organization of original and updated construction docs into sets, including highly accurate and customized optical character recognition (OCR) of title blocks.
