BCF not converting to ToDo

  • 1.  BCF not converting to ToDo

    Posted 11-13-2019 08:20



    When I import BCF file to Trimble Connect (web), it imports just as a regular file (it's not converting to a "ToDo" list). I have tried uploading both - .bcf and .zip files (containing .bcf in it), to the project folder. These files upload to Trimble Connect and no further processing happens. 


    I'm using BimCollab to create .bcf file.


    Thank you!

    I uploaded BCF file (v 1.0) to the project folder and then clicked on "add to ToDo" (picture attached).

    If you add the *.bcfzip and open from trimble connect after a while you wil get them.

    What do You mean after a while? For one small issue I am waiting couple of hours and nothing is happening. There is description that file is "in queue". Do You know where there can be a problem? I am using solibri to export bcfzip file.

    I think depending of the size and number of bcf's. In my case I just have issues when exporting from Trimble task to bcf.

    I have made only one small issue for test purposes. It weights 57kB. And I am waiting for couple of hours now while in old tekla bim sight everything is working fine.

    It is only one issue for test - 57kB. It is now 3 days and nothing is happening. In Tekla Bim SIght the same bcfzip file is visible.

    Hi community, I am facing the same issue than @Sergejs Saplavskis . How did you solve it?

    Hi">CCI Rennes! Unfortunately, I didn't find a way to solve this when exporting from BimCollab. I've spoken with BimCollab and Trimble support and they couldn't help with this. This was a while ago, maybe both software had some updates, and I didn't check this recently.

    @Sergejs Saplavskis, Please send an email with the BCFZIP file as an attachment to If this issue is already reported, including the case number. This will help us to understand the issue and provide the status of the case that is already reported.

    A couple of months ago I also had this bcf issue, and also there was a problem if I wanted to export issues directly from Solibri to Trimble. ToDo was created, but the view in ToDo was missing. I asked about this problem to local dealers, they said, that they know about this problem, but they don't know when a solution will be made. Now I use a different approach to this problem ( not sophisticated, but it works fine) - I am asking designers to use *.smc file and majority of them have no problem. Rest of the issues ( about 10% of total) I remake in Trimble using GUID number and searching.

    Hi everyone, 

    Do you have any idea why the markup.bcf is not well structured with Trimble Connect whereas it was rightly written with Tekla Bimsight? 

    No lines...
