December 1, 2015 – Autodesk Inc, as one of what will likely be several industry announcements at Autodesk University in Las Vegas this week, unveils in a press release the project formerly known as Project Alexandria Technology Preview, Autodesk BIM 360 Docs, “a comprehensive, cloud-based service for the construction industry that provides a virtual workspace to create, access, maintain, markup and share 2D and 3D project documents, plans and models”.

Clearly aimed square at competitors such as Bentley ProjectWise, Bluebeam Studio and Newforma, this marks a sophisticated, modern commitment to document and model sharing at the construction site or in the office in ways that former solutions like Buzzsaw and Design Review could not have made traction.


Features supporting both mobile and web document and model viewing, markups, version control and more are more tightly integrated than previous environments with flagship solutions such as Revit 2016.

In a surprising move, access will be free and include unlimited users and unlimited files.
