Integrate Trimble Connect with a BIMcollab project

Integrate Trimble Connect with a BIMcollab project

The Trimble Connect integration allows users to view models stored on the Connect platform, create new issues and evaluate existing ones directly on the BIMcollab Cloud web application. 
The integration is available for users with a Connected or Enterprise plan. You can test the integration on your free or Starter account for a period of 4 weeks.
The integration will show all models in the Trimble Connect folder as one combined model.
The viewer in BIMcollab Cloud is based on the internal Trimble Connect modelviewer.
To enable this integration, follow the following steps.
  1. Log into BIMcollab
  2. Select as project leader the appropriate project and go to the Settings page
  3. Click 'Integration'

  4. Select Trimble Connect as your integration and click Sign in

  5. Complete the sign-in process
  6. Select the appropriate region and project

    If needed, select the folders containing your project models and add them to the 'Selected Folders' list. By default, models found in all of the project folders will be used.

  7. Click OK
    All models in the Trimble Connect folder will be shown as a combined model in the Model tab of your project in BIMcollab Cloud       
               
To customize the display of elements such as spaces or background color for the BIMcollab viewer, use the viewer settings option in the Trimble Connect viewer. Changes are also applied to BIMcollab.
