The Next Generation of BIM 360, Part 5: Revit 2019.1 Home Connect Update

Posted on October 30, 2018 by Synergis Applications Consultant, Bill Knittle

In Part 4, Applications Consultant Bill Knittle demonstrated how to collaborate within BIM 360 Design. During this next part of our series, we’ll be discussing how the Revit 2019.1 Home Connect Update provides you and your team with more direct access to your projects and shared cloud models in BIM 360 Design.

In BIM 360 Design, Project Admins have access to adding teams to the design collaboration workspace. This creates a file directory to which to store the shared cloud model from Revit.

It is this directory that Revit users will navigate to in order to open the shared cloud model locally on their Revit desktop application. Watch the video below for a step-by-step tutorial to see the newly updated Revit 2019.1 homepage in action.

So, what are the clear benefits of the Revit 2019.1 update? Here’s our summary:

  • The Recent Files window has been replaced with a newly updated homepage, which provides greater access to cloud models more easily and quickly
  • Project members using Design Collaboration can take advantage of the BIM 360 Connect feature right from the homepage
  • Logged in as a Project Member, you can access your BIM 360 projects, and drill down to the directory tree to find your shared cloud model more quickly
