The Project Bluestreak team released an update yesterday. Recall that Project Bluestreak is a technology preview on Labs that helps distributed AEC project teams collaborate informally with self-organizing groups and coordinate their work with real-time communication. With this new release, Project Bluestreak now combines team communication with automated notifications from Revit Server and supports collaboration from the desktop or the web. To see for yourself how Project Bluestreak changes how AEC teams collaborate, navigate to:
Yesterday's release has three key features.
This latest update includes a Bluestreak Desktop that runs in a compact window. This is handy for running it alongside any Autodesk or other desktop application so you can stay connected with your distributed AEC team. The Bluestreak Desktop provides real-time communication and automated application notifications.
The Revit Activity Stream app connects Autodesk Revit to Project Bluestreak cloud services. This helps distributed teams more effectively collaborate as they work on a shared Building Information Model. For users of the new Revit Server technology, this app replaces the older Revit Worksharing Monitor.
This update also allows you to use your Autodesk Single Sign-On credentials as your Project Bluestreak login. This is the same user name and password that you already use to:
- Log into the Labs community to download technology previews and participate in the discussion forums.
- Co-edit and collaborate using your DWG files and AutoCAD WS.
- Try AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit, and Maya over the web via Project Twitch.
- Get your DWG files rendered via the cloud using Project Neon.
- View and manage your DWF files using Project Freewheel.
- Save your diagrams using Project Draw.
- Save customized rooms using Project Showroom.
We are happy to add Project Bluestreak to the list.
Facilitating AEC team collaboration is alive in the lab.
