Trimble Connector

Trimble Connector enables the connection between Tekla Structures and Trimble Connect for Windows or Trimble Connect for Browser for sharing models and ToDo notes, matching views and selected objects.

With Trimble Connector, you can:

All operations between Tekla Structures and Trimble Connect use the project base point. This means that, for example, reference models from Tekla Structures are placed in relation to the project base point in Trimble Connect. If you have not defined a project base point, the model origin is used.

Note:

You need to have a Trimble Identity before you can start using Trimble Connector.

Note:

Trimble Connect related metadata and all reference models are located in the ..\TeklaStructuresModels\<model>\TConnect folder. Exported reference model settings are stored to the ..\TeklaStructuresModels\<model>\Links folder. Trimble Connector does not work correctly if you manually modify the files in these folders.

Launch Trimble Connector

You can launch Trimble Connector in multiple ways:
  • Through the ribbon:

  • Through the file menu:

    • To download a reference model from any Trimble Connect project to a Tekla Structures model, click File > Import > .

    • To publish an IFC reference model of the open Tekla Structures model to any Trimble Connect project, click File > Export > .

Trimble Connector opens. You can link your job to a Trimble Connect project if you have not done that earlier. You can also create a new project.

To start working with Trimble Connector, you need to sign in to Tekla Structures using your Trimble Identity.
