Autodesk Unveils Robust New Features for BIM 360
Enhanced BIM 360 Layout app empowers construction teams to speed up layout workflows, and additional feature advancements aim to simplify daily tasksSAN RAFAEL, Calif., Oct. 9, 2019 — (PRNewswire) — Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) today announced enhancements to BIM 360, including a newly designed Layout app for mobile devices on Android operating systems. Autodesk also unveiled new BIM 360 features that make the project set-up process easier and increase collaboration between the field and the office, with expanded machine learning capabilities to better identify risk.
Traditionally, construction layout and verification tasks were handled by one or two trained individuals who had access to siloed point information and knew how to operate complex layout equipment. BIM 360 Layout solves this major pain point by making the layout process easy for any construction team member. With model data accessible directly from within Layout via the cloud, anyone on a project team can now collaborate across the BIM 360 unified platform. BIM 360 Layout also enables construction teams to connect a coordinated model directly to the layout process with Robotic Total Stations and GPS devices, increasing jobsite productivity, and reducing rework and waste while improving the accuracy of staked or installed building components.
