Logging into the Elecosoft BIMCloud

If you are working with IFC files that are stored in the Elecosoft BIMCloud®, you must log into the Elecosoft BIMCloud in order to open IFC models that correspond to the IFC files that are stored there. In order to log into the Elecosoft BIMCloud, you must first have been set up as a user in the Elecosoft BIMCloud itself.

If you are working with IFC files that are stored locally, you do not need to log into the Elecosoft BIMCloud to work with Powerproject BIM.

If you are not already logged into the Elecosoft BIMCloud, you are asked to login in the following circumstances:

  • When you attempt to open an IFC file that is stored in the Elecosoft BIMCloud in order to associate it with a project.
  • When you open a project that has been associated with an IFC file that is stored in the Elecosoft BIMCloud.
  • When you attempt to open or view the properties of an IFC model that corresponds to an IFC file that is stored in the Elecosoft BIMCloud.

To log into the Elecosoft BIMCloud when prompted to do so:

  1. Select the type of account with which to log into the Elecosoft BIMCloud. You can log into the Elecosoft BIMCloud using a Yahoo!®, Google® or Windows Live™ account.

    If you click the wrong account type, click Home at the bottom-left of the screen to return to the list of account types. Note that this button does not appear in all circumstances.
  2. Enter your login user name and password.
