Run your favourite BIM software in a browser ?

Seems to be a new era for CAD and BIM with Frame, it is a service that lets you move any Windows application to the cloud and access it from any device, at any time. All you need is a browser, no plugins or additional hardware are required.

In the last AU2015 AutoCAD and Revit was certified by Autodesk to be used on the Frame platform, you need simply to create a virtual machine on the platform, connect your favourite storage service (Dropbox, Box or google drive) and install Revit after uploading the installation files to the cloud.

This post will not be a full review of Frame, its just a pre-review for our first impressions about it :-)

You can use another CAD / BIM software not only Revit or AutoCAD, here's the official list of compatible and certified software at this day :

  • ANSYS Workbench
  • Autodesk AutoCAD 2016
  • Autodesk Inventor 2016
  • Autodesk Revit 2016
  • ESRI ArchGIS Pro
  • IronCAD
  • Siemens NX 10
  • Siemens Solid Edge ST8
  • ProgeCAD 2016
  • Vectorworks



Do you think that Frame and all similar cloud services will replace one day you HP or DELL machine ? To be honest i am not sure but i think that will help a lot "mobile" people which need to access their 3d model from a construction site !

Please do not hesitate to send us your feedbacks if you test this platform especially with Revit.

Happy women's Day to all women on BIM friends !
