Details

Introducing the Autodesk Forge AR|VR Toolkit.
Use the "Forge AR|VR Toolkit" to help you connect into various CAD workflows, like BIM/Navisworks/Revit/Solidworks and use the data-streams directly inside Unity. Unity supports publishing to most major AR and VR pipelines and hardware, so once the Forge Asset is in Unity, you can continue to author your app as you want. The toolkit supports static import (at Unity authoring time) or dynamic import (at Unity runtime).
