MAGNET Live: Introduction and logging in

What is MAGNET Live?

MAGNET Live is a model sharing platform that allows you to share your combined BIM models with project members or other stakeholders.

It supports 3D models that have been published using MAGNET Explorer. It also allows you to publish models for private review by e-mail. You can give comments and create new topics in 3D context and collaborate with stakeholders around those topics.

MAGNET Live utilizes WebGL technology which enables the viewing of models with popular web browsers. MAGNET Live supports Chrome and Firefox.

A valid license is needed to publish models. However, viewing of published BIM models on MAGNET Live is completely free.

Key Features

  • View 3D models uploaded from MAGNET Explorer via a web browser anywhere and anytime.
  • Collaborate with stakeholders via rich, context-oriented topics.
  • Share your 3D model with a direct link by e-mail.

Access levels

MAGNET Live has two user access levels: admin and team member. Permissions are managed from by the organization administrator.

A MAGNET Enterprise software admin user can add/edit/delete other team members, models, and topics.

A MAGNET Live software non-admin user can only view shared models and topics. If the user is the owner of the model (user has published a model from Explorer), the user can delete the model from MAGNET Live. The user can only edit topics the user has created. Topics created by others cannot be changed.

How to log in

Log in to MAGNET Live with your Topcon credentials.

New MAGNET Live licenses are available for purchase in the MAGNET Systems online store.

MAGNET Live Pro licenses that have been activated in MAGNET Enterprise will be automatically shown in the Access tab once you log in to MAGNET Live.
