A360 Collaboration for Revit: For Construction Project Collaboration


Autodesk Revit Collaboration Suite 2016

This service unites A360 with Revit software to enable better construction project collaboration with centralized access to BIM project data in the cloud. Collaboration for Revit enables entire project teams to work on shared building information models.

A360 is compatible with most modern desktop browsers that support WebGL. Test your browser for WebGL support here: https://get.webgl.org/. (The Adobe® Flash® Player may also be required to view some items.)

For the best desktop viewing experience, we recommend using the latest versions of these browsers:

  • Google Chrome™ version 29 or later
  • Mozilla® Firefox® version 31 or later
  • Apple® Safari® version 7 or later
  • Microsoft® Internet Explorer* 11.0.9600 or later can show some design files, but still has limitations. We’re working hard to resolve this known issue. Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10 don’t support WebGL, so they can’t show either 2D or 3D design files. They can only show nondesign files.

For the best mobile viewing experience, we recommend using the Autodesk A360 mobile app for iOS and Android.

If you’re using a browser that does support WebGL, that feature may be disabled. Search the web for how to enable WebGL for your browser.
