Autodesk and Nemetschek: Openness unleashed with Design and Make Platform

To help our customers achieve their business goals more effectively, Autodesk continues to open its environment to partners—and even competitors. Platforms are changing the game for consumers with innovative, easy-to-use end-to-end solutions. Platforms that are open, allowing software developers to build upon each other’s work, provide the highest value. Our Interoperability Agreement with the Nemetschek Group is the most recent example of our commitment to building an open platform. We want to improve open collaboration between the architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) and media and entertainment (M&E) industries and enhance existing interoperability between our industry clouds and desktop products.

Introducing Flow Graph Engine, the first Media and Entertainment oriented APS service

As you’ve likely seen with the Autodesk industry platform vision, we have three terms: Forma (AEC), Fusion (MFG), and now Flow (M&E) is coming into the platform with the Flow Graph Engine service. This service will allow you to evaluate Bifrost graphs in the cloud and therefore offload the heavy compute requirements that could only be run locally before. Learn more

Customer Stories


CCTech used Autodesk’s Data Exchange SDK to build a connector that brings live 3D model data directly into PowerPoint. Designers use their design software of choice to push model geometry to the data exchange. The PowerPoint user fetches the data, which appears as an interactive model in the slide—no design software license or experience required. Read the story and watch the video.
