No Export for BIM Explorer command

I seemed to have lost the export command to create a BimX model. Anybody know what is going on?
I have also tried to publish/save as .bimx but no file is created

I assume you are not using version 18 as your signature suggests?

There is no longer a 'Save as' option from the 3D window.

You must use the FILE menu > Publish BIMx Hyper-model... command or once set up you can publish from the publisher sets.

You must have a custom Work Environment loaded.
Try the 'Standard' WE.
This was a new command in 18, so if you have a WE from a previous version you will not see this command unless you add it yourself or load the 'Standard' WE.

You can also "Save As" in the 3D window and change the file type to BIMx (not possible in versions after 18).

ok. Have reverted the work environment and it has reappeared. Not sure why it went in the first place as I had not changed my work environment (customised & saved) in some time, so it had disappeared from my customised environment.
