Start by downloading the iTwins Syncronizer onto your desktop. Click here.


Before you open the iTwins Synchronizer app that you have installed, make sure that your user is a member of the ProjectWise project you are uploading your models to. Click here to see how it’s done.

Open the iTwins Syncronizer and select the ProjectWise project you want to work with. Note that now you are creating a CONNECTION to your iModels. You can not create iModels from here nor delete them, that has to be done from the iModel Manager in the Connect Center. Here you can edit and delete connections to a specific iModel.


You can create as many connections to the iModel as you want.


Create a new connection

If you want to upload your 3D models, you can either add them to an existing connection or create a new one. To create a new one, click on the “+NEW” icon and follow the instructions from the screenshot. Once everything is configured, click Next.

The next step will check for missing connectors that enable your model to be uploaded to the iModel. Enable (download) all the missing connecters and click Save.

After you have set up the connection, click on the Synchronize tool to upload the 3D models into your iModel.

In this step you are creating a version to your connection. The versions are useful if you want to change content in you iModel. For instance, in Version 1 you can have 1 dwg file but in Version 2 you can have the same dwg file and a BIM model. You can add and remove models without having to create a new iModel, all you need to do is create a new version. Each version is then stored in the iModel Manager and you can always choose a previous version to work with.


When your iModel has been synced, you can go to the Connect Center to view it in Design Review or you can go to OpenCities Planner and import the iModel in a project.

Back to the Upload options.
