With the new Autodesk 360 service launched.. what are the pro's and con's for using either software?


BuzzSaw is a paid service that offers:

1Gb storage per user

Version management

File right's

Desktop app/ mobile app/ on-line access


Autodesk 360 is a free service that offers:

3Gb storage per user (i am on subscription, so i have 25 Gb)

Verion management

File right's??

Mobile app / on-line access


I am thinking of switching our entire BuzzSaw-site to Autodesk 360.


Can anybody add to my list, and are more users considerring this?

The problem is that Autodesk 360 don't sync the windows folders in real time...

From what I've seen, viewing Revit models on a tablet does not work on Autodesk 360. It does work on buzzsaw, however. I'm wondering if Autodesk intentionlly disabled this feature in 360 to drive more sales of buzzsaw?

Hi Wouter, I am in the same situation, what was your experience with the two services?


Was 360 sufficient for your needs? Were you able to sync your files in the same saw as you did with Buzzsaw?

I am not a buzzsaw user, i never saw the point as it is just a WEBDAV client (webfolder). so I can not compare...


360 is free with subscription which is the only reason we looked into it.  As an Architecture office, we are coordinating live consultant BIM models (MEP) and thought 360 would be an obvious simple integration.  


I would only recommend 360 for small simple projects as it fundamentally does not offer folder permissions (other than the root share).  This is important to prevent data from being accidentally modified and then distributed to the entire project team.  Setting up a share for each permission group on each project is messy, even worse if you propose each consultant configure their own share correctly for the entire project team.  The permissions issue is enough to chuck it to the 'round file' for our office.


360 unfortunately needed some more field testing before autodesk brought it to market.  Buzzsaw, 360, 360 Glue, and Constuctware should be one cohesive thought-out product...  Until then we will be going elsewhere for our coordination needs (as are most offices).
