    While Uploading Tekla model to Trimble connect Via Tekla structures Trimble connect tab. It facilitates upload of full model which includes dummy object or some Reference members which we model almost every project for our personal reference use. Is any method available so that we can exclude some area, object, member or phase from live model while uploading to trimble connect.

    Hi Shivam, 

    Unfortunately no. We have the similar issue and there is no workaround it, other than exporting IFC files. Tekla structures upload the complete database file to Trimble Connect.

    Best Regards,

    Hello shivam

    In Tekla, you can't directly upload selected members. However, in Trimble Connect, you can filter out unwanted members like 'DUMMY' using the object filter in the right-side panel. With this you will be able to see only the required members.

    Hi all

    I had the same problem, but I could easily fix it by choosing 'None' as 'IFC entity'. This is a userdefined attribute.

    With this entity 'None', the objects will not be exported in IFC or to Trimble Connect.

    Best regards.
