I’m looking forward to tighter BIM 360 Glue and Navisworks integration moving forward…
All project and enterprise BIM 360 Glue subscriptions now include access to Autodesk® Navisworks® Manage and Autodesk® Point Layout for use by the purchasing company.
Navisworks Manage 2015 and Autodesk Point Layout 2015
With this new entitlement, connected office and field teams can more easily collaborate using streamlined BIM workflows on everything from multidiscipline coordination and material takeoff to component staking and installation. By removing access barriers, teams can improve information accuracy at the point of construction and help accelerate project delivery.
Navisworks Manage and Point Layout may only be used by the purchasing company’s employees who have access to a BIM 360 Glue Project. These products may be used in conjunction with BIM 360 Glue in order to do work on that specific BIM 360 Glue Project.
In order to grant access to a user to either of Navisworks Manage or Point Layout, the employee will need to be a Host or Project Administrator on the BIM 360 Glue project.

Interesting – this kind of turns the point cloud technology upside down… It goes something like this:
- Revit model
- to points
- to site survey hardware (set out the building)
- build it
- then laser scan the as constructed
- compare points of the as built model for quality control
The part I’m trying to get my head around is this – these aren’t really point clouds, but rather, they are setout points of Revit BIM 3D elements for construction use. Perhaps the word ‘point’ is going to be more popular than the word ‘BIM’ this year 🙂
