If there is a plan to host Autodesk Revit® cloud projects or for adding additional seats of Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro down the line, the BIM 360 Hub needs to be activated.

Activating a BIM 360 Hub

Here are the steps the Primary Admin or Secondary Admin needs to take for activating the BIM 360 hub:

  1. Log into your Autodesk Account – .
  2. Select All Products and Services > type BIM in the search bar > pick the Access button at the bottom of the BIM Collaborate Pro program square.
  1. The following dialog should present; check and/or select the following:
    • Create a New Account.
    • Type in Company Name.
    • Choose USA as the data host.
  1. Once the BIM 360 hub has been activated, you will be redirected to the internet access of the hub. It is recommended that you add a second user as a hub admin for a backup to be able to access the hub and add users if necessary.

Make sure you are set to Account Admin > pick the Members tab > choose Add Members > .

Assigning Users Software

Each user that will be working on a cloud project in Revit must be assigned a seat of BIM Collaborate Pro.

If all products are on the same team, and the user is already in the account with a seat of AEC Collection assigned, you can simply assign them a seat of BIM Collaborate Pro.

  1. Log into the company Autodesk account – .
  2. Pick By Product from the left hand panel > select BIM Collaborate Pro > pick the Assign Users button.

Note: A list of the users with a license assigned will be displayed. If any of those users no longer needs a license, simple pick the Unassign button to the right of their name. This will release the license, making it available to assign to another user.

  1. In the Assign User window > Pick inside the box to reveal a list of users that can be assigned a license > select the desired user(s) > pick the assign button (once users have been selected, the Assign button will be selectable.)

If all products are on the same team, but the user is not in the account, add the user and assign the software.

  1. Log into the company Autodesk account – .
  2. Pick By User from the left hand panel > select Invite User > put in the user’s First Name, Last Name, and Email Address > pick Send Invite.
  1. Pick the newly added user > select the Assign button next to the software they need – AEC Collection and BIM Collaborate Pro button.

It is possible that the AEC Collection and BIM Collaborate Pro are on different teams. If that is the case, the users will need to be added to each team and then assigned software from each team.

This should get you up and running with your Revit cloud projects.
