The Autodesk BIM 360: Fundamentals guide teaches how to manage files in the cloud using BIM 360. BIM 360 manages files by controlling sharing and distribution, managing conflicts and changes, and better predicting project deliverables, all with the aim of lowering project risk. Companies using BIM 360 to manage their Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow will benefit from this guide in that they will learn the fundamental tools that will allow them to begin managing their data in the cloud.

In this guide, you will learn how to upload and manage architectural, structural, MEP, and infrastructure models in the BIM 360 platform. You will review and use markup tools for communicating issues across disciplines. By coordinating your files, you can check for clashes and learn how to communicate these clashes along with other issues with the team. Finally, you will learn how various modules in BIM 360 can be used to visually review the status of your projects. The BIM 360 platform contains many products and modules that enable you to manage your projects. This guide covers many of the modules in the BIM 360 Docs, BIM 360 Design, BIM 360 Coordinate, and BIM 360 Build products.

Note: Prior to using this guide, the project used for the training must be properly set up in an existing BIM 360 hub by an administrator. The instructions are provided in this guide. In order to perform all the practices in this guide, this setup must be completed
