If the file is something that Autodesk 360 Viewer can handle, just go to Data and then click on the uploaded files thumbnail – the viewer should load
I tried uploading a Revit file and it was very smooth to navigate. You can click on the toolbar at the bottom and show model structure (3 squares in a tree view), or click on the gears and turn on the ViewCube.
Just for the fun of it, I uploaded and viewed this model:
With features for team communication and wiki, it is obvious that Autodesk 360 intends to be more than just a file sharing and viewing tool.
When Autodesk 360 is installed (current version is 126.96.36.1992), it creates a “special” Autodesk 360 link that lives directly under My Computer. Additionally, certain Autodesk applications can directly access Autodesk 360 using a special link.
However, some current Autodesk applications do not seem to have direct access to Autodesk 360 via any special “links”. What to do?
In Windows Explorer, open the special Autodesk 360 link (which has your Autodesk login name appended), and then
right-click on a subfolder and
select Open in New Window
Now, click in the address bar and the “location” should be revealed…
In my case, it was: C:UsersLuke JohnsonAppDataLocalAutodeskAutodesk SyncCloudluke.johnson
So, yours should be: C:UsersyourWindowsUsernameAppDataLocalAutodeskAutodesk SyncCloudYourAutodeskLogin
I know its not rocket science, but you can now use this path to access Autodesk 360 from any application.

Autodesk certainly faces the Innovators Dilemma – particularly with regard to cloud technology (think of them supporting VEO while building 360). Phil Read includes the following footnote on page 16 of his AB2340 handout:
* Clayton Christensen refers to this as the “Innovators Dilemma”: Internal competition that cannibalizes existing, successful processes are discouraged. Apple is one of the few businesses that will actively cannibalize successful products. The philosophy is that since their competition is trying to do this, the best way to compete is to do it better. Be the best in the world at making successful products obsolete.
