New AEC Collection entitlements

Now with access to Autodesk Docs and Insight

On February 9th, Autodesk added Autodesk Docs to the AEC Collection.

This is a phased launch meaning the product will be available on February 9th (“Global Availability”), with more features and functionality to be rolled out in the future.

Autodesk Docs will be added to the AEC Collection, and will NOT be available as a standalone offering at this time.


Autodesk Docs (through the AEC Collection)
Features Launch Future
BIM 360 platform support
Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC) platform support
ISO 19650 compliant No BIM 360 / ACC projects
Bring Your Own Subscription (BYOS)

*Insight refers to the module that provides project analytics visibility on both, BIM 360 and Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC) platforms.

What is Autodesk Docs?
Autodesk Docs is the Autodesk common data environment, a centralized document management solution, that acts as a single source of truth across the project lifecycle for all teams. With Autodesk Docs, AEC teams can simplify collaboration and data management across design to construction and streamline document review and approval workflows.

Autodesk Docs is available through the AEC Collection, Autodesk Build, BIM Collaborate, and BIM Collaborate Pro. Learn more about Autodesk Docs below.

What is included in Autodesk Docs?
Autodesk Docs provides access to the following modules:

  • Docs
  • Insight
  • Account Administration
  • BIM 360 Document Management

How many seats of Autodesk Docs will current subscribers to the AEC Collection get?
Seats of Autodesk Docs will be added to current AEC Collection subscriptions at a 1:1 rate.

How will I know I have access to Autodesk Docs?
Single user subscribers to the AEC Collection will see Autodesk Docs added to their AEC Collection entitlement on February 9th.

Multi-user subscribers to the AEC Collection will see Autodesk Docs added to their Autodesk Account between February 15th and April 30th.

How do I access Autodesk Docs?
Once you see Autodesk Docs added to the AEC Collection in Autodesk Account, have the contract manager click on “Access Now” next to Autodesk Docs. This will bring them to a page where they’ll be prompted to create an Autodesk Construction Cloud account which will have access to both the Autodesk Construction Cloud and BIM 360 platforms.

For contract managers of single user subscriptions of the AEC Collection, Autodesk Docs will show up as a product under the AEC Collection. For contract managers of multi-user subscriptions of the AEC Collection, Autodesk Docs will show up as a separate line item in Autodesk Account.

Once your Autodesk Construction Cloud Account is created, your account admin will need to invite users who will be project administrators. From there, the project administrators can begin creating projects and inviting users. Users can also log into acc.autodesk.com to access their project list.

If you have an existing BIM 360 account, hitting “Access Now” will enable access to the Autodesk Construction Cloud on the US data center.
