Topics in Quadri for Windows allow you to communicate with other participants in a Quadri project. The command will give access to one of two currently available Topics services: BCF Topics in a Connected Project or Quadri Topics.

Find it here:

Working in a Connected Project - BCF Topics

If you are working in a Connected Project, you will automatically access the BCF Topics feature. 

Create topics by clicking the plus sign in the Topics pane and add description, assignees, priority, status, and more. Add views, comments, markers, and more. 

BCF Topics is part of Trimble Connect; you will access the same project specific Topics both in Quadri for Windows and in Trimble Connect. 

Quadri specific aspects of BCF Topics

The user guides above also apply to the BCF Topics in Quadri for Windows. There are, however, a few aspects that differ between Quadri and Trimble Connect


Markers are currently shown in all drawing rules - this is valid from Quadri 2024.3

Older versions only support the Default presentation setup for viewing markers in your 3D model.

Creating Topics in Quadri requires selecting models in Trimble Connect in order to ensure that proper views are generated. Learn more about Model Selection
