BIM 360 Team and C4R is an additional service from Autodesk. It is not cheap, but opens a lot of doors. I know at least one firm, BKV Group, with over 100 Revit users who do ALL of their projects in C4R; one of their BIM Managers (Mike Matheny) and I used to work together. This allows any staff member to work from home if they have a sick kid, or from a coffee shop if they just want to get out of the office for a while. Plus, this also allows all projects to work with any structural and/or MEP consultants via the Cloud with live linked models. Internally at the multi-discipline firm I work at, we have been using live linked Revit models every day, on every project, since Revit Structure and Revit MEP first came out.
Here are the basic steps to get started...
Initial Setup Done by Each Person
- FYI: An 'Administrator' of this Autodesk service within your firm needs to invite you and give you access to C4R.
Getting the Revit Model into the Cloud (only one person does this for each Revit model)

Once set up, this is all you have to do each time you want to work on the project
Select your Revit project and click Open.

This Cloud-based service is very stable, overall. If you are having troubles, go online and check https://health.autodesk.com/. This is a real-time report on the current status of all Autodesk Cloud-based services. If your service is running normally, then there is likely a problem on your end.
