Open a shared model

If you want to open a model that has been shared by using Tekla Model Sharing , you need to be logged in with your Trimble Identityuser account to Tekla online services and other Trimble services

For a Tekla Structures user, Trimble Identity is a single sign-on account which enables the user’s online identity management. The organization that the user’s Trimble Identity belongs to, determines the user’s access rights. Trimble Identity is needed, for example, for Tekla Campus and Tekla Warehouse, and to log in to Tekla User Assistance.

.

  1. On the File menu, click Open.
  2. Click Browse shared models.

    Tekla Structures prompts you to log in with your Trimble Identity , if not already done so.

  3. Select the shared modelmodel used for collaboration over the Tekla Model Sharing service

    With a shared model, each user works with their own model and the changes are shared through Tekla Model Sharing. A shared model requires the use of a single-user model. The same model cannot be a shared model and a multi-user model.

    in the Shared models dialog box.
