Model Coordination Setup

Module overview

Welcome to Model Coordination Setup for Automatic Clash Detection. Cloud-based collaboration fundamentally changed the way the AEC industry worked by allowing various disciplines to work in a real collaborative way. The Model Coordinate module, which is included in the BIM Collaborate Pro and BIM Collaborate offerings, takes it to the next level by allowing the teams to automatically detect, review, and resolve clashes on their projects. In this module, you learn how to activate the Model Coordination service on a cloud-based project and then create one or multiple Coordination Spaces. You then understand the file formats that can be used for clash detection using the Model Coordination module. You then set up and upload Autodesk Revit models for automatic clash detection. Finally, you familiarize yourself with the Model Coordination Interface.

This module takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. By the end of the module, you should be able to: 

  • Activate the BIM 360 Model Coordination Service and create Coordination Spaces 
  • Set up Revit models for Automatic Clash Detection
  • Familiarize yourself with the Model Coordinate Interface
