Save model placements in project data

If model placement is saved in the project data, it will save everyone in the project team from moving models in to place.

Hi, When working in a shared project model location information can be shared with others using the 'Republish' command, so this kind of functionality is already available. Any project member in a shared project can republish the project to update locations of models. Then other project members can refresh the models to move them to the updated positions. More information about the Republish functionality is available in the following help topic http://helpcenter.teklabimsight.com/helpcenter/helpTopic.jsp?topic=bim_republishing_project Thanks, Heikki

Heikki, If I remember correctly, using the "republish" command will not update saved views for other project members. Is that still the case? This is the one thing that has kept us from using any of the syncing features. The ability to sync ALL of the model information through republish would save us countless hours of frustration over here! Don't get me wrong, the software is awesome, but keeping the field up-to-date and getting the field to keep us up-to-date has proven difficult to say the least.

Hi Ryan, At the moment you can share notes, models and also model locations via a project folder but for example the saved views are not shared. However, as a workaround you can currently use notes for sharing the view information. Add as many views as you wish to a public note, and the other project members can then view these note snapshots and use them to create saved views. Hope you find this workaround useful. Thanks, Heikki

Unfortunately, the workaround is not useful to us. The model organization in the model tab is also lost with republish (unless I am missing something). We cannot expect the field to re-organize the model every time (weekly or even daily), it's just not practical for us.

Ok, sorry to hear that. Yes, the model group information is also something that is currently not shared, however, an ability to share also some other project information is something that we're considering for the future Tekla BIMsight releases. Thanks, Heikki
