    • Login with your Autodesk ID.
    • Open the CEE 222 - Global AEC Testing 2022 project.
      • If you have used BIM 360 before and your Autodesk ID has been linked to another account or project, you might not see CEE 222 - Global AEC Testing 2022 listed at the top of the screen. If this is true, click on the project name and pull down the menu, then choose CEE 222 - Global AEC Testing 2022 from the list of projects that are available to you.

    • On the Revit Home screen, click the Autodesk Docs link in the navigation bar at the left side of the screen.
    • When you click the Autodesk Docs link, the right side of the screen should display:
      • A pull-down menu at the top of the screen that includes the projects that you are a member of.
      • A list of the folders and files contained within the selected project. At the top level, this list includes folders named For the Field and Project Files.
        • If the Autodesk Docs link doesn't appear on your Revit Home screen, or if the Stanford BIM360 EDU-CEE > CEE 222 - Global AEC Testing 2022 project doesn't appear in the pull-down menu of projects, please email the course assistants to get your Autodesk ID added to the Autodesk Construction Cloud project.
        • If you have used BIM 360 before and your Autodesk ID has been linked to another account, you might not see Stanford BIM360 EDU-CEE listed as the account at top of the screen. If this is true, pull down the menu and click Change Account to switch to the Stanford BIM360 EDU-CEE account.
