Hello, salvadore_gonzales


Autodesk has two solutions for Collaboration with Revit.
Revit Server
Collaboration 4 Revit

In short Revit Server Software is included in your Revit license. The setup will need a server (Host) and if you want to do it correctly another sever (accelerator) on each geographic location.
See hyperlink for more information about this setup.

Collaboration for Revit is a different setup. You can get a license for Collaboration 4 Revit and you will get access to BIM360 Team also.
On BIM360 Team you can create a project and use that project as cloud location for your Revit Model. Every person that needs access to the Revit model will need Collaboration 4 Revit license.
See hyperlink for more information about this setup.


I would really like to hear from you if this will solve your problem or you have any more questions.
For all other Forum members, it would be nice if you mark the reply as a “Solution” when it answers your question.


Good Luck,

Niels Oomen

Kudos to the above post. And yes, Collaboration for Revit (C4R) is a great option for dispersed Revit teams and consultants to work on the same Revit project!


Here are some more links on C4R

Also, there are several Autodesk University 2016 free classes now posted on C4R that include video, downloadable class materials or both: Collaboration for Revit - 2016


This is a pretty helpful video too, IMAGINiT Technologies presentation from December 2015: Revit Server vs. Collaboration for Revit
