As your project evolves so will your model history in 3D Repo. The good thing is that we never delete anything shared on 3D Repo, so there is a full audit trail to any information exchange.

Access model revisions

Model containers will retain a full revision history, so you can always travel back in time or run a model change analysis with 3D Diff.

  • Go to the Containers tab

  • To access the model revision list, click on the Revisions button next to the specific model

If you are trying to access another revision from the viewer directly, simply click on the current revision name and choose the other revision you wish to open.

Revisions List

In the drop-down, you get a full history of models uploaded to the container. Here is the information you get about those files:

  1. Date & Time of the upload

  2. Name of the account that uploaded the file

  3. Revision name

  4. Description if any

  5. Model status (Active/Void)

  6. An option to download the revision locally

If you wish to open a specific model revision, click on the specific and underlined revision name.

Active vs Void Revision

If you ever make a mistake and upload the wrong file version, you can always change revision status to Void. Click on the Active button. That will prevent you from opening that model revision. It will also disable it from appearing in Federations and Compare card. At any moment in time, you can always reactivate that model revision by clicking on the Void button.
