BIM 360 and Revit LT

I have a project on BIM 360 with a Revit 2020 file that I created (non-workshared, just saved to cloud from a full version of Revit 2020). Is there a way to invite a new user who only uses Revit LT 2020? I have tried to invite a Revit LT 2020 user and while they can go online and see everything via the BIM 360 portal, if they go to Revit LT the file does not appear on their home screen under 'Recent Files'. With full Revit the file is there, in Revit LT nothing shows even though an invitation was sent and accepted by the Revit LT user. Is working in BIM 360 just not possible at all with Revit LT 2020? I see from the description of the software that you can save to the cloud in LT 2020 but that appears to only work if you already have a subscription and not if you've been invited to BIM 360.

 

Any clarification would be appreciated

Hi @dean

 

Thanks for your question! Can you tell me if the user has a BIM 360 Docs account? See below for more information:

They have a stand alone, licensed, perpetual license of LT that is on a yearly maintenance subscription. I have BIM 360 and have invited her to the project. She can go through the web portal and see the project but does not see it through her version of Revit LT 2020. I have full access to it via BIM 360 inside my full Revit. Is it not possible to just invite her and she can access it via her Revit LT?

So no, this user does not have a BIM 360 Docs account but then again, none of the people I have invited have an a BIM 360 account. The only thing that is different between this user and all the other users I have invited is that she is using Revit LT. 

She is an active member in BIM 360 and she does have an Autodesk account through which she logs in........ as I said, the only difference is this user has Revit LT instead of full Revit.

She should be able to see the model in Revit using LT if this is a cloud model and not a workshared model.

  • Were you able to invite her to the project and did she receive the email invite?
  • Is the model in the same version as the Revit version she is using? (2020?)
  • When she logs into the website, can she see not only the project but the model in the folder as well?

Basically yes to all of the above. Yes, she received the email invite. Yes the model is the same version (2020). Yes, when she logs into the website she can see the model in the folder. In fact she tried uploading a model from her computer onto BIM 360 and that worked just fine except I can't see it in my full Revit 2020!

 

I mentioned earlier that she is using Revit LT 2020, it is a perpetual license that she has on a maintenance plan that is paid for and up to date. Does that have anything to do with it? Has AutoDesk figured out one more one to punish those with perpetual licenses by making their version of Revit LT not quite equal to subscription based licenses of Revit LT? I mean, this shouldn't really have anything to do with that since it is my -- paid -- BIM 360 account and I am inviting her to participate in it. Whether she has one version of LT vs another shouldn't affect her ability to use my paid account..... or does it?

Does she have access to Cloud Models for Revit in her account?

No, she doesn't have access to Cloud Models. Is that something automatically given to subscription users of Revit LT but not to perpetual users? Or is it something that all Revit LT users need to purchase in order to have access to the cloud?

How would she go about purchasing access to the cloud given her perpetual license, if she needed to and wanted to do that?

Yes, these services are available to subscription customers and those with a perpetual license not on active maintenance will not have access to cloud services. Please see below for information on moving to subscription and let me know if you have any further questions, thanks!
