New Connect and Construct Exchange partner program also launched
At its 25th annual flagship user conference, Autodesk University, Autodesk, Inc. previewed its next-generation BIM 360 platform, a seamless cloud service connecting the entire construction project lifecycle. Autodesk also launched the “Connect and Construct Exchange,” a new BIM 360 integration partner program designed to bring third-party software applications and data into the BIM 360 construction workflow. The Connect and Construct Exchange launched with more than 50 inaugural BIM 360 integrators.
The next generation of BIM 360, built on the Autodesk Forge platform, supports informed decision-making throughout the construction project lifecycle by centralizing all project data in a single place. Autodesk Forge is a connected developer cloud platform which enables customers and partners to create customized, scalable solutions for engineering, construction and manufacturing challenges. BIM 360 connects project stakeholders and workflows at all stages of the building lifecycle – from design to construction to operations, from the field to the office and back. BIM 360 removes the uncertainty that plagues construction projects of all sizes by pairing its project management tools and database with machine learning analytics and insights. The result is closer collaboration among project teams, greater transparency about changes, and improved data continuity that translates into increased profitability.
Developed with Autodesk Construction Industry Customers
The new BIM 360 platform is a result of collaboration between Autodesk and 500 construction professionals from 100 organizations who informed the company’s software development process. Autodesk BIM 360 solutions presently house almost 4 million models, and BIM 360 customers have logged approximately 200 million field observations.
Connect and Construct Exchange
BIM 360 connects fragmented workflows across pre-construction, execution, fabrication, installation, and facility management. The new Autodesk Connect and Construct Exchange adds value for each of these phases of construction with an inaugural group of more than 50 BIM 360 integration partners, of which more than 40 are now available on the exchange. The exchange’s goals are to showcase, catalogue and generate awareness for all applications and integrations to the next-generation BIM 360 platform so customers and partners have a broad choice of solutions to enhance and extend their workflow to better meet their unique construction needs.
