Learn about new and enhanced features in BIM 360 Glue.
A new version of the BIM 360 Glue iPad app, which enables BIM 360 Glue users to access and intuitively explore up-to-date multi-discipline projects from anywhere, is available now. This new version provides powerful model and object visibility controls and advanced measurement capabilities for easy, intelligent access to project models and data.
Hide and Reveal Models and Model Objects
See behind obscuring objects, such as walls and ceilings, to access and view important project details.
Isolate and highlight model objects for easier inspection and in-context review.
Hide and reveal individual models within a multi-discipline project model to quickly review specific disciplines and details.
Powerful measurement tools optimized for BIM
Easily check project model dimensions with enhanced point-to-point measurement tools. Accurately position measure points with the new magnifying glass to see what’s under your finger, and automatically pan large objects to measure any project model dimension.
Display XYZ differences between measure points to ensure level measurements and to compare modeled dimensions with installed components.
Measure shortest distance
Calculate the shortest distance between selected objects for easy verification of dimensions and clearances.
Optimize productivity with new learning content
Learn how to fully leverage the BIM 360 Glue app with the new Getting Started feature.
Access contextual help for the first use of specific features, such as hiding and revealing model objects. If needed, access detailed WikiHelp content directly from within the app.
A new version of the BIM 360 Glue mobile app, which enables BIM 360 Glue users to access up-to-date project model data from anywhere, is available now! This new version provides the ability to take simple measurements from any project model, online or offline.
Measure BIM objects
Now you can take simple point-to-point measurements within the model scene. Automatic object snapping makes it easier to position measurements on any object surface, edge, or corner.
Measured distances can be displayed in Imperial or Metric units.
Enjoy brighter scenes
Updates to the scene rendering provide a brighter experience when exploring your models - particularly noticeable in interior locations.
Get easy access to Help from any screen
While exploring your project models, you can now access the Help slides whenever you need a quick reminder. Help is accessed via the ? on the new toolbar - also the new home for the Saved Views, BIM Data and Measure buttons.

Online or offline access to large project models
Open any model in BIM 360 Glue while you are connected to WIFI or a mobile service, and it will be added to your Recent Models for quick access -- even when you're working offline.
Access Navisworks models in the field with BIM 360 Glue. Use the "Glue It" feature in the Navisworks add-in app to publish Navisworks data to the BIM 360 Glue cloud.
Secure data with your Autodesk ID
Ensure that your project data stays safe with secure, authenticated, anywhere access to BIM 360 Glue projects. Use your Autodesk user name and password to log into the BIM 360 Glue mobile app.
Visual help for model navigation
Get started quickly and easily by following the how-to help screens in the BIM 360 Glue mobile app. Learn to navigate your models using Saved Views, Walk Widget, Gravity, and Immersive View controls.
Some models from older BIM 360 Glue
projects may not be immediately visible on your iPad. If you encounter this situation, simply "Glue" the latest version of your model(s) to your project. The model(s) will then be available for you and your team in the BIM 360 Glue
New Projects Page - Intelligent Access to Models, Projects and Activities
The new BIM 360 Glue projects page provides one-click graphical access to recent models and multiple projects. You can view your most recent models or the models with the most activity. Intelligent labels indicate when there are new clash reports, markups, or views associated with a model or project. Hover over the labels to display the related activity list with links to project data.
Getting Started Panel
When a new user first signs in to BIM 360 Glue, the Get Started Now panel provides access to the BIM 360 Glue Tour and a number of video tutorials to help train new users. Close this pane to maximize the space for Models and Projects. To display this area again, select "Getting Started" from the Help menu.
Support for Earlier Versions of Autodesk Revit
BIM 360 Glue now provides additional plug-ins for Revit 2010 and Revit 2011 so that users of earlier versions can interact with Glue without leaving their design environment.
Single Sign-On from Revit, AutoCAD, and Civil 3D
BIM 360 Glue now provides single sign on for Revit, AutoCAD, and Civil 3D users who connect to multiple Autodesk cloud services. Once a user signs in with their Autodesk ID to use any cloud service, they won't have to sign in again to use the BIM 360 ribbon.
Simplified BIM 360 Glue Sign In
Users no longer have to remember or enter their host site name when signing into a BIM 360 Gluee project. After receiving the Welcome to BIM 360 Glue email, they can sign in with their Autodesk ID user name and password.
Streamlined Project and User Administration
A streamlined user interface for creating projects, granting user access, and sending project invitation to team members simplifies common administration tasks.
New Addition to the Autodesk BIM 360 solution!
The product formerly known as Horizontal Glue from Horizontal Systems is now available as "Autodesk BIM 360 Glue," a service within Autodesk BIM 360, which brings intelligent model-based workflows through a broad range of cloud-based services.
Autodesk Account Sign In
BIM 360 Glue now uses the same Autodesk user name, password, and profile used by Autodesk 360 and the growing ecosystem of Autodesk cloud-based services. The first time you access the new Autodesk BIM 360 Glue release, you will be asked to sign in with your Autodesk user name and password. If you don't have an Autodesk account, you can easily create one.
Once you have an Autodesk account, you can use that user name and password across many Autodesk products and services. The Autodesk account also provides automated password recovery for users who forget their user name, or password. Users won't have to wait for assistance and administrators won't have to spend time resetting user passwords.
Easier Project Access
With BIM 360 Glue, it is now even easier to get started. The new installer updates automatically to simplify installation and access for users and administrators. Links to project data now work regardless of browser settings.
Support for 50+ File Formats
BIM 360 Glue now supports more than 50 file formats and has improved support for some existing formats:
- Improved DWG support (X-refs, fidelity, object enablers)
- Improved DGN Support
- Improved IFC and Sketchup Viewing
Autodesk Design Tool Integration - Now with Clash Pinpoint for AutoCAD®
BIM 360 Glue now supports the 2013 versions of Revit®, AutoCAD®, and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® with add-ins for each product. The add-ins let users coordinate their work without leaving their design tool environment.
The "Pin-Point" feature - now called "Clash Pinpoint" -- provides the ability to isolate clashing elements from BIM 360 Glue in both Revit and AutoCAD.
Now you can publish any .NWD model directly to BIM 360 Glue and make that file immediately available to your project stakeholders. If you integrated your project control system or Microsoft SharePoint with Horizontal Glue, the Navisworks model can be accessed by that external system. Use the Navisworks 2012 or 2013 Add-in and "Glue It" to BIM 360 Glue.
Simplified Model Alignment and other Usability Improvements
- Model alignment settings are now the same as Navisworks, so it's easy to work in either context and move models between Navisworks and BIM 360 Glue.
- Improved navigation / zoom extents
- Markup-up text improvements
- Short URLs make it easier to provide links to project models
In-product Learning Assistance
BIM 360 Glue provides a quick tour, learning videos, and a wiki help system where Autodesk employees and the BIM 360 Glue community can contribute to the BIM 360 Glue knowledge base.
BIM 360 Glue incorporates community feedback and support to make it easy to connect with Autodesk and others. Ask a question, share an idea, report a problem, or tell us what you like or don't like.
