3DM Cloud Upload

The desktop extension “3D Mapping Cloud Upload” makes it possible to upload, update, download, and delete resources from your 3D Mapping Cloud storage account.

3DM Cloud

Orbit GT's 3D Mapping Cloud platform is used for storing, sharing, and streaming reality data resources.
To upload resources to Bentley ProjectWise ContextShare, see ContextShare Upload.

Prepare Resources to upload

Only storage formats supported by Orbit 3DM Viewer can be uploaded, see Supported Resources.

Original Mapping Resources and Reference Resources must be prepared and optimized properly prior to upload.
