DAQS Autodesk Forge plugin
The DAQS Forge pluign gets installed on the customer's Autodesk Construction Cloud / BIM360 Common Data Environment. This plugin can't do anything by itself! It is up to a user with the appropriate credentials to instruct Forge to retrieve a copy of the plugin and a copy of a published Revit file to send to the Autodesk Forge servers. On the Autodesk Forge servers a special version of Revit is started that loads the DAQS forge plugin. After the model is loaded into Revit then the plugin starts to work and creates a data extraction and saves the data into a json file. The json file is then send to DAQS.IO servers for analysis. After that all data is deleted from the Autodesk Forge servers!
Important to understand:
- DAQS does not store your Revit files.
- DAQS can not recreate a Revit file from the json file.
- DAQS analyses published Revit files.
- The DAQS forge plugin does not work on 'live' models and therefore DAQS does not have any influence on your production work.
