Regarding the functionality available in Pro to create a BIM Cloud Connection, it seems at the moment the only connection supported is AutoDesk BIM 360 - is that right?

The documentation implies that connections to other BIM cloud stores are also supported but the Add BIM Connection tool in Pro only gives me the option to configure a Connection Type of BIM 360:

From the documentation (https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/data/cad/connect-to-bim-cloud-connection.htm😞

"A BIM cloud connection allows you to access content in an online BIM cloud storage repository, such as Autodesk BIM 360, or the Autodesk Construction Cloud, and use that content in ArcGIS Pro."

Does anyone know if it's possible to connect to other BIM/CAD cloud storage environments or if anything is coming soon that will allow this?

@MappyIan,

The BIM360 connection type does include ACC as well. As for supporting other connection types, that would be a question better suited for the ArcGIS Pro team.

I am curious what other connection types you would be interested in.

Hi @ACheuvront, thanks for the message.  Our client has their data stored in the MiCAD system (https://www.micadsoftware.com/contact-us/), so a connection to that would be massively beneficial to us at the moment.
