Autodesk releases update for Revit server compatibility with Project Bluestreak

Launched last year on Autodesk Labs, Autodesk Project Bluestreak is a Building Team-centric, cloud-based collaboration utility that helps distributed AEC teams communicate informally and coordinate their work more efficiently.  Bluestreak consolidates the information silos used in AEC workflows by combining informal, real-time team communication with automated actions and information from AEC applications and services, starting with Revit.

Recently, Autodesk gave project Bluestreak a major upgrade that includes a new, Facebook-like UI, Revit Server compatibility for users of any Revit 2011 product, and the ability to download files directly from a user’s activity stream. With the Revit server compatibility any information from a Revit model can be linked and shared through the activity stream.

“We wanted more focused activity in the project groups,” said Mark Evans, Autodesk’s senior product manager of the simulation line. “Allowing lightweight file-sharing, threaded conversations and collaboration that’s a lot more project-based.”

A Project Bluestreak messenger can also be downloaded to run from your computer’s TSR tray to allow instant-messaging-like communication with other team members.
