Tekla Model Sharing


With Tekla Model Sharing a global team can work efficiently within one model regardless of the team location and time zones. The team members can work both simultaneously and at different times.

Free evaluation. Requirements: the trial can be activated once and it is available for customers, who do not have Tekla Model Sharing licenses and have not evaluated Model Sharing previously:

Multi-user mode also allows several users to access the same model simultaneously. Multi-user mode is suitable for local teams with projects where the team members do not necessarily have an Internet connection.

Trimble Connect


In Trimble Connect you can publish your models and drawings to be shared with other project participants.

Note, we have temporarily expanded the capabilities of Trimble Connect Personal to allow you to more easily collaborate with others in your team who may not always have access to your model.
