View large constructible models even in mobile

Today, digital construction professionals face issues with BIM models. In general, models are getting more detailed and data-rich and they grow fast in a file size. Uploading this size of models can be a tedious process when model size can be more than 1GB.

 

In Trimble Connect models are transformed into TrimBIM. The TrimBIM technology is a format invented and implemented in Trimble for efficiently storing 3D BIM / civil geometry and attributes. The technology allows users to view large models, even in mobile.
