What is BIM 360?
BIM 360 is a cloud-based construction management software by Autodesk, which allows users to store and manage project information and collaborate with team members.

About Forge viewer
The Forge Viewer is a web-based 3Ds max plugin development by Autodesk as part of its Forge platform. It allows users to display, share, and collaborate on 3D models and data from various file formats, such as Revit, AutoCAD, and Navisworks, using a web browser or a mobile device.
The viewer is used by professionals in a range of industries, including architecture, engineering, and construction, manufacturing, and more.

The Forge Viewer includes a wide range of features, including:

Model Viewing: The viewer allows users to view 3D models in a web browser, and they can zoom, pan, and rotate the model to see it from different angles.

Markups: Users can add annotations, measurements, and other visual aids to the 3D model using markup tools, making it easier to communicate design intent or changes.

Sectioning: The viewer enables users to cut sections through the model, giving them a closer look at the inner workings of the structure.

Collaboration: The viewer includes collaboration tools that allow multiple users to work on the same model at the same time, or share the model with others for review.

Implementation of BIM 360 Forge Viewer:
BIM 360 and the Forge Viewer are often used together in construction projects.
BIM 360 Forge Viewer integration allows users to view and interact with BIM 360 project data in a 3D environment. For example, a user could view a 3D model of a building in the Forge Viewer and access BIM 360 project data such as documents, issues, and RFIs (Requests for Information) directly from the viewer.
This integration can provide a more efficient and streamlined workflow for construction teams, as it allows users to access all relevant project information in one place, and enables real-time collaboration and issue resolution.
