In the past, when I uploaded a model to the BIMx transfer site I would receive an email with a link to it that I could give my client. This is no longer happening. Has something changed? Can I set something up so this happens again? The only way I can get the link at the moment is to go the Transfer site and manually copy and paste the link into an email.
thanks

Well I'm new at the transfer site - in fact, just uploaded my first today and it did send a link. I don't know if it helps as you are probably more practiced, but it only worked properly if I uploaded and published from the the 'company' tab and not 'My Models' tab. I find it confusing, but there was a difference.

Hi,

If the e-mails are not in your spam folder, then either you are signed in with the wrong account in ARCHICAD, or there is a problem in our database. (maybe we have the wrong e-mail address registered for you?) It is not possible to manually turn off these e-mails from your account settings.

Please check your registered e-mail address, and if it is fine, and you are still not getting e-mail, then send me your registered e-mail address in a Private message, and if possible also let me know when you uploaded last. This way we could check our database.

Thanks,

I have the same problem with AC23.
After several successful transfers, it stopped. With the same account, AC 24 works ok. When I started the transfer in AC24 I got a message to resume non-finished uploads from AC23.
Also, the model is heavily corrupted in BimX, with flickering and wrong geometry.

Dear Ernest,

Thank you very much for your question and I am very sorry about the issue!

From the description, I can see that publishing from AC24 worked well, therefore there should not be any issue with our server. There is one interesting detail: "After several successful transfers, it stopped... when I started the transfer in AC24 I got a message to resume non-finished uploads from AC23."

which suggests that the previous model from AC23 failed to be sent to the transfer site. I am wondering if you can publish the BIMx model locally? Was it successful?

Also, does this issue happen with any files, or with one file only?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
Minh

Sorry for the late reply, I didn't have the time to fully investigate the problem. Indeed, publishing locally was possible from the corrupted AC23 file. Also, this behavior was related to a single file until now.
We moved this project to AC24 and it works better.
Probably the upload was faulty because of a communication error, my main concern was the wrong geometry and flickering, never seen that before.
I will look for the file and send you the link.

Hi,

Thank you for the information!

I haven't seen you mentioning about wrong geometry and flickering issue, but it sounds like Far From Origin for me. Please check this article and let me know if this helps. Feel free to ask me if you have any further issues!

Best regards,
Minh

I have sent you a private message with the bimx file.
The model is 150 m from the Origin, I don't think it's the cause of the problem.

Hi,

I sent you a message about the flickering issue. In short, I would say the model is not far from origin, but there are 2 slabs with covering fills that have far from origin handles. Either moving the fills' handles back to the origin, or switching the Fill Orientation Method to "Link to Project Origin" would reset it.

Let me know if this helps!

Best regards,
Minh
