Upload Revit Files(BETA)

IMPORTANT NOTE

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.

Upload Your File

To upload a Revit file

  1. Download the latest version of Trimble Connect for Windows from the Trimble Connect App Store and install on your computer.Note: if you already have Trimble Connect for Windows on your machine, verify you are using the latest version. Update if necessary. Version 1.9 or later required.

  1. Sign in to Trimble Connect.

  2. Open your project.

  3. Click Add file (or drag & drop a .RVT file from Windows Explorer)

The Revit file will be added and begin assimilation in the Windows application.

Once your file has finished processing, you can then upload it to the server where it can be viewed in the Browser application.

Default 3D View

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).
