Cloud Model in BIM 360 team not showing in Transmit Model(s) dialog

Cloud Model in BIM 360 team not showing in Transmit Model(s) dialog

Hello,

 

I am trying to Transmit a model published to BIM 360 Team, using the Transmit Model(s) add-in, but when accessing the folder through the Browse Models dialog, the model file is not visible. Other .rvt-files in the project are visible but not the one I want.

 

If I download the model from BIM 360 Team it downloads as a .zip-folder containing two different model files - the one I want and another model file.

The other model file is Linked from the Cloud into the main file but currently unloaded. There are also several other .rvt model files linked and unloaded into the main file but these are not included into the .zip-folder. The only difference between them is that the others are not stored in th cloud but in our local system.

 

So, the question is: What do I have to do in order to be allowed to use Transmit Model(s) add-in to export a copy of my main file?

Do I have to remove all the cloud links? (or is it enough unload them?)

 

For now I have used the work-around by downloading the zip-folder, unzipping it and then transmitting the downloaded and unzipped model file. But it seems to be a little ineffective as a concurring workflow. Any ideas?

Thank you!

Hi @marcus,

 

I understand you wish to eTransmit your C4R model without the linked models in it. 

 

The eTransmit Tool for Revit models has the purpose, to enable users to create a package containing not only the main (host) model, but the linked files as well - in case they are avaialable. 

You see more information about this feature here: 

Transmit a Revit Model

 

I understand however, that you want to send your main (host) model only. 

In this case, you can log in to your BIM 360 Team hub and manually download the last published project file version to your local machine.

However if you want to send it somewhere, it might be better to invite another user to the hub and simply let them view the published model directly on the web interface (which has the Large Model Viewer modul).

If the other users need to make changes to the Revit model, you can actually start collaboration with them using the Collaboration for Revit service.

You find more information about this workflow documented here: 

Workflow: Get Started with A360 Collaboration for Revit

 

I hope this helps. If yes, please, mark this as a solution.

Please, let me know, if you have further concerns, or I happened to misunderstand your challenge.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello @Zsolt.Varga, thank you for your answer.

 

It somewhat answer my question by confirming that there is no other way to do the Transmit then either download the model or remove the link before publishing if I want to send only the main model. But that is fine of course! Just wanted to get the confirmation that this is the proper workflow for this task.

 

We use the Transmit Model(s) module to strip the model of unnecessary objects/families/views/etc. before sending it to other consultants.

Hi there. Not sure if you found the answer you were looking for with this but I think I have just solved the same problem myself. If you publish the model in BIM360 (C4R) then use the etransmit fuction in Revit, you can now navigate to the location of the published model, and use the etransmit tool with all it's settings to purge, copy links, delete views etc. on that version of the model. It all seems to work fine for me so hope this helps others achieve an effective etransmit of their project. A pity Autodesk has really not resolved an effective process the etransmit BIM 360 models.

Good Luck.
