AEC Data Model APIs-Public Beta

Autodesk has been working towards realizing its vision of providing a leading platform for better Design & Make data management across the different industries we serve using Autodesk Data Models. After running exclusive private beta programs with select AEC customers and incorporating their valuable feedback, our newest Data Model for the Architecture, Engineering & Constructio industries, the AEC Data Model is now available in Public Beta! The AEC Data Model breaks up monolithic AEC files like .rvts and .dwgs into valuable bits of granular data that are managed on a secured cloud.  That granular, object-level data is then made accessible via easy-to-use APIs. Check out this blog to learn more and to join the public beta.

Autodesk is looking for feedback on the Beta version of new SDKs for Data Management, Model Derivative and Webhooks APIs.  The packages are built in Typescript. Participate in the call for feedback here.

Autodesk Developer Network joins with Autodesk Platform Services

On November 9 the Autodesk Developer Network "Open ADN" content migrated into the Autodesk Platform Services Developer Portal. the ADN Memeber site (content ADN members access via a login) remains the same, but the link is now found on the ADN membership page.  Increasingly, the disctinction betwn desktop and cloud developmet is blurring, and we went to assist this transition by unifying developer resources, so that you can focus on connecting data, teams, and workflows regardless of the products, tech stacks or vendors involved.  Learn more.
