Overview of BIM 360 Glue Add-ins
Teams that have implemented BIM 360 Glue should utilize the Add-ins available to maximize productivity in this collaborative environment. Add-ins are available for all versions of AutoCAD, Revit and Navisworks applications and provide a direct link to BIM 360 Glue projects, allowing users to update the model in the cloud without ever leaving the design application.
In my last post in this series, I provided information on where to download the BIM 360 Glue Add-ins and also reviewed the BIM 360 Glue Add-in for Navisworks.
The Revit Add-in includes functionality to upload or download model content directly to/from a BIM 360 Glue project, access clashes clashes identified in Glue, and update properties for equipment based on data collected in the field. The first time any of the Add-in tools are accessed, you will be prompted to enter your BIM 360 Glue login and password.
To upload current model content to BIM 360 Glue, select the Glue tool. You will first be prompted to select the appropriate Glue project. The Add-in will continue to use the selected project by default until Revit is closed. If you are working on multiple projects, simply select the Back button to select a different project.
