BuildingConnected API joins the APS family

The BuildingConnected API is now officially part of Autodesk Platform Services under the ACC family of APIs. BuildingConnected is the online platform that connects owners and builders through an easy-to-use, streamlined bid and risk management process. 

The BuildingConnected product suite includes three sub products:

  • BuildingConnected Pro – leverage the largest network in the North America, help invite the right vendors, manage proposals, and award the best bid, soliciting prices during the bidding phase of construction.  
  • Bid Board Pro – manage bid invites with the online bid board and helps make right decisions. 
  • TradeTapp – qualify subcontractors through automated analysis and recommendations so that you can mitigate risks sooner. (Not part of this API release)

Retiring BIM 360 Issues (v1) Endpoints

Does your application use BIM 360 Issues (v1) API? Autodesk plans to retire eleven (11) BIM 360 Issues (v1) API endpoints. Recently we have released the version 2 of BIM 360 Issues API. Action required: If you are using any of the eleven (11) Issues (v1) API endpoints with BIM 360, please migrate to Issues (v2) API by July 5th, 2023, at which point the Issues (v1) API endpoints will be deprecated and stop functioning. Failure to migrate in a timely manner will result in breaking the workflow in your application. Read this blog for more details.

We held our first-ever Sustainability APS Accelerator last week, which took place at Ramboll's impressive office space in Copenhagen. We chose this city because it is widely recognized as a leading example of a sustainable city, with its commitment to reducing carbon emissions, promoting green transportation, and preserving green spaces.
