View models on hubs (BIM 360 or Fusion Team)

Description

This sample shows a basic tree view with Hubs, Projects, Folders, and Items. It does not use the ASP.NET native TreeView due to its limitations, but the jsTree library, that has support for menus, reload, among other features. This sample is based on the Learn Forge tutorial.

The tree view will display personal enterprise (shared) hubs, with respective projects. For Civil 3D drawings with Alignments, the Alignment Design Check toolbar icon list alignments and compare its curves with a minimum radius value. The following image demonstrates a typical tree view:
