BIM 360 Glue: Update Roundup

November 13, 2015 Adam Higgins

Updates to our BIM 360 construction software platform are never more satisfying than when they are the direct result of customer input. Thanks to suggestions made by AECOMHolder Construction and others, we've released a series of updates for BIM 360 Glue that we think all users ought to know about. 

Here’s a roundup of them all...


Shared Views Integration with Navisworks 2016

Building on the interoperability with BIM 360 Glue, Navisworks 2016 Service Pack 3 now introduces Shared Views integration. Shared Views created in either BIM 360 Glue or Navisworks are synchronized with the project, providing real-time access across clients.

Shared Views created in Navisworks 2016 synchronize the view including the following attributes:

  • Object Visibility (hidden state)
  • Object Overrides (color and transparency)
  • Section Planes and Section Boxes
