Here are the key things to know about Autodesk 360:
- We give 3GB of storage space to anyone for free. This can be used for online collaboration, viewing, rendering, editing DWGs...or just simply storage of any file type (take that dropbox)
- If you are an Autodesk Subscription customer (first off, thank you) you get 25GB of storage, 100 Rendering units, Inventor Simulation Optimization, Energy Analysis for Revit, Green Building Studio, Structural Analysis for Revit and some Buzzsaw too.
Once in, you can easily begin taking advantage of your 360 account. For this post, I am just going to focus on what anyone with the free access can do (because, honestly, that is all I get as an Autodesk employee by default). Right off the bat, you can quickly and easily see any and all activity related to your 360 files. Users can easily filter by date, activity type and collaborators.
To add files, you simply select the documents link on the top of the page and then drag and drop your files into 360 (or select the upload icon if you like that sort of thing). Either way, collaborators can be specified and a basic type of user rights can be applied to a file or folder.
With your files added into your 360 documents, you can begin to decide if you want to share your document. If you share it, you can decide what permissions you are giving to those you are collaborating with. All by right-clicking directly on the file in 360 (really you are clicking in your internet browser...Google Chrome is my poison of choice). Here you can see, I have a plethora of options for interacting with the file.
...and once you choose what you want to do with the file, you can decide how your fellow collaborators can interact with the file.
Let the collaboration and file sharing begin! And this is just the tip of the iceberg with Autodesk 360. Autodesk 360 provides...
Access to files via Mobile Apps
and Cloud Enabled Products
...here at Autodesk we change product names from time to time. But, it is certainly more than a name change, I guess you could say it is like Bob Dylan said, things have changed.
