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 Reality Management.

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.
Original images part of Mapping Resource must be optimized into processed images to get the run ready for upload. Original images aren't uploaded. See Optimize Imagery.

Local Resources Catalog

The Resources Catalog manages the available resources and relevant resource files to upload.
Only web-ready resources are listed to upload or update, and only web-relevant resource files will be uploaded. E.g. if both original jpg and optimized omi images are available, then the optimized images only will be uploaded.
For more information on the Resources Catalog and how to add resources to the Catalog, see Catalog.

Sign In

Sign in with your 3D Mapping Cloud login. Users part of an active 3D Mapping Cloud account and having the administrator role are able to sign in and manage resources.
No administrators or users having a Free Trial Plan cannot upload data.

To create your account, go to


Select the action :

  • New: Upload a new Local Resource
  • Update: Upload a Local Resource to update an available Cloud Resource.
    Local and Cloud resources must be of the same Resource Type. This action can be useful to resume an interrupted upload or to replace some files of a large Mapping Resource.
  • Delete: Delete a Cloud Resource.
  • Download: Download a Cloud Resource.


Datacenter information will be available only when uploading a new resource. This information is linked to the 3DMC account and can be modified upon request. It has no influence on the geographic location of the resources.
For more information on available data centers, see Storage Nodes & DNS Records.

Local Catalog Resources

All web-ready Generic, Asset, and Mapping Resources available from the Resources Catalog are listed.
For more information on the Resources Catalog and how to add resources to the Catalog, see Catalog.

Resource Details

Review the metadata of the selected local resource and, optionally, update the name of the resource to be used in 3D Mapping Cloud.

Upload, Delete, Resume, Update

Start the selected Action immediately or delegate to the Task Manager.


The “3D Mapping Cloud Upload” tab gives an overview of all uploaded resources and displays the status of ongoing uploads.
