Working with Mobile Models

Learn how to use view and work with models in the Mobile app.

The Mobile app gives you access to your models and allows you to carry out a variety of tasks wherever you are.

  2. Tap the screen to hide the Model Stacks menu and view all of the screen and it's controls.

You can view as many models from the stack as you need to. This is called federating, which simply means loading, and therefore overlaying, multiple models together. Normally you'd load the different disciplines for a model into one federated view of the entire building.

Viewing a model's details

Select the information icon of a model in the stack to see details of the revision date and who uploaded the file.
