    Hi,
    I would like to develop a WebGL app to visualize a BIM acquired through Unity Reflect Develop. Reading the Unity Reflect FAQ I found this:
    "Does Unity Reflect support a web-based Viewer?
    You can use Reflect to import data, which can be used in a WebGL application, but cannot build a WebGL viewer "
    What exactly does this mean? Do you have any suggestions for my app?

    Thanks,
    Pietro

    Hey Piener87,
    At the moment, Reflect uses gRPC for downloading data from the cloud. Unfortunately, gRPC doesn't support WebGL, so it won't be possible to create a Reflect app without replacing it.
    This is something we've started working on, but I don't have an ETA on when it'll be available yet.
    David
