Integrate BIM 360 with a BIMcollab project

Integrate BIM 360 with a BIMcollab project

The BIMcollab BIM 360 integration allows users to view models from a BIM 360 folder, create new issues and evaluate existing ones directly from the BIMcollab Cloud web application.
The integration is available for users with a Connected or Enterprise plan. You can test the integration on your free or Starter account for a period of 4 weeks.
The integration will show all models in the BIM 360 folder as one combined model.
The viewer in BIMcollab Cloud is based on the internal BIM 360 modelviewer.
