Configure a BIM cloud repository

You can configure an online BIM cloud storage repository, such as Autodesk BIM 360 or the Autodesk Construction Cloud, to use with ArcGIS Pro.

BIM cloud repositories allow CAD datasets (including DWG, DXF, and DGN files) and BIM file workspaces (RVT and IFC files) to be stored online. They allow you to collaborate with other teams working with the same data outside of the ArcGIS platform. After configuring your BIM cloud storage repository and connecting to it, you can browse the folders and files it contains, download the content you need, and use it in your project.
