Helping to pave Autodesk's vision of providing granular access to valuable design-make data through native cloud APIs within the Construction, Manufacturing and Media & Entertainment industries.
After incorporating customer feedback during our public beta phase in May, we are happy to announce that the Fusion Data API is officially released and ready to be used in your production environment!
To show how easy these APIs are, below is a video walkthrough of an end-to-end workflow that starts off in the Fusion 360 design tool and ends up with me extracting granular data from a web browser.
Fusion Data is the first of three cloud information models to provide READ and WRITE capabilities to your Fusion 360 models without the need of the authoring application.
The Fusion Data API exposes these capabilities through a user-friendly GraphQL interface tailored to the product design and manufacturing industry.
Today, the APIs are read-only for a limited data set but we are committed to unlocking more value as we progress through our data granularity journey.
This first installment includes:
The first installment of the Fusion Data API enables:
We are excited to see what other use cases you have for these APIs!
We know that CAD workflows are complex. Dealing with CAD data can be even more complicated. Thus building easy-to-use APIs that access CAD data can be a challenge. So our main objective is to democratize data, traditionally locked in files and make it available via simple APIs to enable your downstream workflows. Thus, Fusion Data is born!
Everything you have seen in the video is documented on our developer web portal. Visit this link and follow the instructions to get started with Fusion Data today!
