With BimServer and BimCloud we had to collaborate by a single model
By this way
it might be great to lock or unlock a layer or some layers for each collaborater
The MEP engineer could work on the sigle model without go through external files (recollement, loss of time and energy but especially strong risks of errors)
Please review below my post about the ability to reserve elements by layer/having them attributed to specific roles.
Is this something you would like to have added to BIMCloud?!
I feel the need to structure our models so that certain roles (architect, engineer, hvac…) have restrictions on the layers they are able to use/edit. This way someone with the right to add electrical/piping data to the model would only be able to add this to specific layers. Therefor she/he would never be able to move structural elements (walls, floors), even if they aren't reserved by anyone.
I will create a small document showing what I feel could greatly improve the BIMCloud solution.
