BIM 360 Design Sharing Method 1: Worksharing

Perhaps the most powerful capability of BIM 360 Design is that it enables Revit worksharing via the cloud. How does it work? You’ll be surprised at how simple it is. Watch the video below or skip to the section below for a quick tutorial.

Once a model has been initiated for cloud worksharing, getting access to it is as simple as just opening a file. The key is to make sure that you’re not opening from BIM 360 via Desktop Connector so that you don’t inadvertently get access to the published model (not the cloud workshared one).

To do that, just make sure you use the BIM 360 browsing area on the Home screen of Revit.

That’s it, it’s that simple. Just make sure to open the file from the BIM 360 browsing area and you’ll get to the cloud workshared model.

Do not browse using the BIM 360 virtual drive created via Desktop Connector. That’ll get you to the published model, not the live one being directly affected by Revit.
