Compare Design Changes & Versions

A360 Release: Compare Changes between Design Versions and Do More with Your Files

This week’s A360 release centers on improving designers’ understanding of design changes. It also provides more file operations within the product.  Some of the features of the improved experience are:

1. Version Compare- Understanding design changes in 2D and 3D

Understanding changes between two versions of a design is a challenge, especially for large, complex 3D models. This is especially challenging for design team leads, who may not use Revit, but want to review the latest project model in their browser. Today we are introducing a new tool that will help project managers, designers and QA/QC teams track design changes across versions of a file, whether it’s 3D models or 2D sheets. Using this tool, users can compare two versions of a design file and easily understand what was Added/Removed/Modified between the two versions. They can quickly browse through the list of changes or drill down into each individual change to see exactly what was altered (e.g. shape, position, property etc.)

Currently this capability is only available for Revit files, but we will be expanding support for other file types soon.  The version compare feature will only be available in the Team tier (A360 Team, BIM 360 Team, or Fusion Team), not in the Free version.

2. Better experience for basic file operations: Move and Copy, Rename, Drag and Drop

This release also brings a better experience for basic file operations: move, copy, rename, drag, and drop. This enhanced experience will allow users to be more productive when doing basic file management operations.
