Autocad custom attributes translate to svf and read by Forge viewer
the customer data can be either of dwg file level or object level(such as XRecord), is it possible that Viewer reads it like reading metadata from Revit? Thanks.

Section Box not working on mobile for Forge Viewer v6.2+
Recently, I've updated the version of the Viewer from v6.0 to v6.3. When I try to create a section box on a mobile device, I can not resize/move the section box. I tried using other versions and found out that I can resize/move it in v6.0 and v6.1, but not from v6.2 onwards.
How can I make the function work again on mobile? Thanks.
Protect intellectual property in autodesk viewer js library?
I know you can disable certain toolbars (which can be undone in the js console) or remove them entirely via headless mode, but considering the browser has to access to the access token, a clever person could use that token with the proper URN, and get full access to the data. Correct?
So is there a recommended way to protect our models so that viewers of it cannot take our intellectual property??
Sectioning plane tool wrong position on restore state
When I save a state and restore it, the sectioning plane goes to the right position. However, when I activate the sectioning tool (for moving the planes), it keeps in the current position (the one before restoring the state). In this case, the "hatch" gets out of the geometry (picture attached) and if I try to move the restored secioting plane, firstly it goes to the tool position, only then I can move it. So, it gets very boring to edit a restored sectioning tool. This issue happens on BIM360Docs too. To reproduce this issue, please follow these steps:
- activate and move a section tool
- Save the state of the viewer
- move sectioning tool to another position
- Restore the saved state
- This is what you get
Autodesk Forge messed up view
We are using the Autodesk Forge model derivative and viewer API's for sharing Revit models with our customers. This works very well for almost all our Revit models. But currently we have 2 Revit models which use the same template, and with those 2 models the Forge viewer does not render these correct. It looks like we get some kind of exploded view, materials are not on the correct place etc (see images).
We assume it has something to do with the Revit template, but we cannot find it. Any suggestions?
Default material for model in Forge Viewer
I'd need to have the complete model use a default material (e.g. grey color) and then use externally defined materials for each node.
So I'm looking for some advice on two points: 1) Setting a default material on all nodes. 2) Setting the material / color for given nodes after they're fetched from an external source.
Could this be done at some point before the model is loaded into the viewer? (i.e. server-side)? If not, can it be done in the viewer?
