BIM 360 Team Hub & C4R as Demo - tips and tricks for setup?

I want to set up a demo for a client and want to make sure I am completely informed when I show up.  I will be getting their "admin" person to setup a hub through the BIM 360 Team site using his e-mail and correct company hub name.  This will be a demo hub as well.  I know there is a 60 day trial for the hub.  Are there any other things I need to be concerned about when setting the rest of the team up with BIM 360 Team?  I am assuming once the hub is setup that he can invite the team to his hub.  I also assume I have to setup BIM 360 Team up on each machine, so they can have the BIM 360 Team Hub show up as a logical drive to open the models that they will be sharing.

 

Are there any tips and tricks that I will find helpful?  I want to make sure the hub is setup and I will be invited and will upload  (collaborate using the cloud) a model for them as well.  Any advice is greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

 

Regards Peter.

 I'll take a look at your pdf file.   Thank you for sharing. I will be setting up and training the staff tomorrow morning.  I'm just going through it now and hopefully will have the HUB and C4R setup on the manager's machine today, so tomorrow's installation and training goes smoothly.

 

There is nothing as bad as going to a client and having something happen that is not expected and the reason for this thread.  Thanks again.

 

Regards Peter.

Dzan - Just wanted to touch base with you after my meeting.  Everything went really well from the setup and use standpoint.  No hick-ups with setting up the hub and getting all the users setup and running.

 

I had two groups for the introduction.  One group was design people / Revit users and the other was PMs, project managers.  The Revit users were all good but the PMs were expecting a little bit more from the BIM 360 Team site.  I think they wanted to do a lot more with the markup and version control standpoint.

 

Can you point me in a direction of a tutorial or elaborate on the tools on the BIM 360 Team site and how they are used primarily.  I think they may have heard about the BIM 360 Docs / Field / Glue's tools and were maybe a little confused that Team didn't have a little bit more of that functionality.

 

Thanks for any tips..

 

Regards Peter.

Hi there...

 

Unfortunately, the markup tools in C4R/BIM 360 Team are not as robust as most would like.  I think this is just a matter of time for the product to evolve.  I know lots of clients want the tools to be similar to Bluebeam Revu markups...

 

Depending on the file type, some markup tools are more prevalent than others.

 

Hope this helps.

Yeah - the problem is the more robust mark up tools do exist, but they exist in another "paid for" service in BIM 360 Docs and Field.  I'm assuming that the way we / Autodesk addresses these questions relating to BIM 360 Team, is to say this is more of a Design Development tool and focus on the PM's having access to "look at" real time updates from the model only.  I want to confirm this is the conversation.  Thank you.

 

Regards Peter.

I just ran into a problem with the hub I have setup for a client.  We "collaborated using the cloud" for a couple of models in REVIT 2016 and everything works well.  They now want to upgrade those models to REVIT 2017.  They have opened and saved as to the server and then opened and upgraded the new central file but when they try to "collaborate using the cloud" to upload that upgraded model they do not see the Project in the list?

 

I just tried the exact same thing and this is also happening at my end.  I have noticed that in REVIT 2016 the path is A360 and in REVIT 2017 it is BIM 360 Team.  Can anyone tell me how to upgrade a file from 2016 to 2017 and have the project show up in the newer version of Revit?

 

Thank you.

 

Regards Peter.

C4R Projects are version specific.  If you have a 2016 C4R Project within a hub and want to upgrade the C4R model to 2017 version, you will need to create a new C4R project as 2017.  Take the 2016 model and saveas 2017.  Then, open the file in 2017 Revit.  From there, use the  Collaborate command to change it to a C4R model and save it to the the new 2017 C4R Project on your hub.

Thanks - that seemed to solve the problem.  I also found a support link to upgrade models and a project in BIM 360 Team.  I guess if you do not want to transfer all of the other associated data inside the BIM 360 Team project into another project, this is the way to update the project as well as the models so they are visible inside of the newer version of Revit??
