BIM 360 Glue: Issue with linked files when you use the NWC file option in BIM 360 Revit Add-in

This is a re-post of a Blog I did for work, which is posted on the IMAGINiT Building Solutions Blog here.

I had a client point out this issue to me, what they had tried to do was to export a Revit file to BIM 360 Glue, using the NWC option in the “Glue” feature in the BIM 360 Revit Add-in. It was a Revit 2014 model from a 3D view with Revit 2 links loaded.

BIM 360 Glue Update – July 11th 2014 Edition

This is one of the things I love about BIM 360 Glue, it is constantly getting updates, improvements, and big fixes during the course of the year. It’s not like other Autodesk software were you need to wait until the next version (will be 2016 now) comes out, and hope that the fix or new functionality you are looking for is there.

With this latest update for BIM 360 Glue the focus is on some improvements (some would say much need improvements) to the clash detection side of Glue.

The 3 main additions or improvements are:

  1. Introduction of the Clash Status. This now means you can give clashes one of four new status levels (Open, Ignored, Closed, and Resolved).

2. Improved clash filtering for easier focus on specific clash issue you care about.
