Link a document to a model object

Add information to your model by linking relevant documents from Aconex.

When you link a document to a model, any user who can see that document in the Aconex document register, and has Models access, will see it attached to the model in Models.

If the document is marked as Confidential, or it hasn’t been transmitted to the user via Aconex, that person won’t see it as a linked document in Models. The document will not appear in the linked documents counter, nor will it be visible in the list of linked docs.

You can check that a linked document has been transmitted to the people you’re working with. If it hasn’t, share it with them.

  1. Select the model you want to view in the model stack.
  2. Once the model is loaded, select the object (or objects) that you want to link documents to.
  3. The Selected Object toolbar appears at the bottom of the viewer. It shows a counter if documents are already linked to that object. If the object has no linked documents, no number will show.
