Building Information Modelling (BIM) allows us the most efficient methods of designing, delivering and maintaining physical built assets throughout their entire lifecycle. In the recent years we have seen some new technologies emerged for collaboration and that also bring challenges in making decisions in electing data formats for collaboration. In this presentation, we will see side by side comparison on some of the best data formats used in AEC industries with its advantages and limitations. I will showcase the best practices in exporting BIM data from Revit for BIM collaboration. This will allow us to decide what type of data could be shared to protect your IP with your consultants, Builders, Renderers or clients. Although, the technologies are evolving, we will also see how we can collaborate these design data to achieve CDE (Common data Environment) using some free viewer and some paid application on PC, iPad, Tablets, Smart Phones.

  • Learn the differences of some industry standard data formats to decide 3D Data sharing formats with varieties of parties protecting your IP.
  • How to collaborate in Cloud using Collaboration of Revit, review process and sharing design data.
  • How to view/share data using Free online viewer and Autodesk 360 on the PC, iPad, Tablets and smart phones
