The BIMx Model Transfer Service is a “cloud-service” to share BIMx models with Colleagues and Customers. Models on the BIMx Model Transfer Site are publicly available by default, but Offices can have private storage too. Read more in the next pharagraph.
Users with Education, Trial and Commercial licenses can only upload their models to a public folder on the BIMx Model Transfer site. Public storage has 5GB quota.
In order to be able to publish BIMx Hyper-models privately, either an active Software Services Agreement (SSA) contract, either a valid Graphisoft Forward Agreement is needed.
When you upload a BIMx model to GRAPHISOFT's cloud service for the first time with your protection key, you will be requested to create a so-called BIMx Company Account where you can store your uploaded models. Follow the steps of the registration process here. Also, your Company gets automatically registered once you change over to software license keys.
