Match views and selections between Tekla Structures and Trimble Connect for Windows

If you are working in Tekla Structures and Trimble Connect for Windows at the same time, you can collaborate with the two applications. In practice, this means that you can match the zoom and projection of the 3D model views, and select the same objects in both applications.

Before collaborating, you need to do the following:

  • Have a project open in Trimble Connect for Windows and a model open in Tekla Structures.

  • Export the Tekla Structures model to Trimble Connect in the IFC format.

    For more information, see Manage reference models in Trimble Connector.

  • Download and show the model in Trimble Connect for Windows.

Match the camera position, zoom level, and projection of model views

You can adjust the model views in Tekla Structures and in Trimble Connect for Windows to match each other as well as possible. When you do so, the camera position, zoom level, and view projection of the views are synchronized. You can select which model view is the principal model view to which you want to match the other model view.
