Use Trimble Connect with an estimating job
You can view the estimating job information in IFC models using Trimble Connect. You can interact with the model in several ways. For example, you can color-code items in IFC models, or select the same items simultaneously in an IFC model and in the estimating job.
We recommend that you start the estimating job by importing an IFC file from Tekla Structures. The IFC file includes GUIDs, unique identifiers that match the identifiers in the IFC model. The necessary IFC settings for Tekla Structures can be downloaded from Tekla Warehouse.
Before you can view the job information in Trimble Connect, your Tekla PowerFab administrator needs to set up the Trimble Connect integration settings. For more information, see Link Tekla PowerFab to Trimble Connect.
