PlantDataManager & PlantReporter: Support of Plant 3D collaboration projects

This article describes the support of Autodesk Plant 3D collaboration projects (Autodesk Construction Cloud or BIM 360) with PlantDataManager 6.1 and PlantReporter 6.1. 

PlantDataManager and PlantReporter support collaboration projects directly now. Currently there are two factors (due to the limitations by Autodesk) you need to be aware of: 

  •  The support is available for AutoCAD Plant 3D 2023 or higher. 
  • The collaboration project must have been downloaded to your local work folder at some point, but there is no need, that the local project is up to date. 

You will find more detailed information under Using ACC/BIM projects in out documentation.  

The following video shows the different workflows that typically occur when using PlantDataManager or PlantReporter.
