Default 3D View(BETA)


It is now possible to add Revit (.RVT) model files to the project and view them in 3D using the Connect for Windows application.

This feature is not intended to replace the Trimble Connect for Revit Add-In which gives the most control over choosing which views get uploaded and other upload settings. Rather, this feature offers a quick, but less controlled, way of getting Revit models into Connect without having to install the Connect for Revit Add-In.

A Revit file can have multiple views in it. Trimble Connect for Windows uses the following rules to determine which view gets selected for rendering.

The rules are evaluated in numerical order:

  1. If a 3D View called 'Publish' is found - it will be selected

  2. If the current 'Starting View' is 3D view - it will be selected

  3. If there is a 3D view matching for name {3D} - it will be selected

  4. First 3D view found is selected

  5. The 'Starting View' is selected (not 3D - the same that is shown when the model is loaded to the Revit application).
