BIMx and BIMcloud are two entirely different things. 

 

In order to upload to the BIMx Model Transfer Site, you would configure your Publisher Set as described at this link. Pay especially close attention to the information under the "Upload BIMx Hyper-model" heading.

Followup question:

I am under the impression we can also share these models via other cloud apps like Dropbox.

 

When a remote client clicks on a bimx file from a non-bimx site, are they able to see and fly-thru the model on a web browser?

 

Or are they limited to a desktop/ios/android app download? [with subsequent download of large model file]

 

Often clients aren't as tech capable as we would like and a simple double click to see it on the web seems most straightforward (afaict...maybe i'm the simple one...!)
