Power your workflows by connecting data between design and make apps with Autodesk's Data Exchange API

Select and share just the data relevant to the task, set permissions to control use, and connect workflows both within the Autodesk portfolio of products and to third party product ecosystems.

By creating an exchange directly from a published Revit model in Autodesk Docs, you have control over sharing your model data. By creating an exchange from an open Revit or Rhino session, you can share your model data quickly and easily.

Connectors make Data Exchange possible

We started by connecting Revit and Inventor through a data exchange. Then we connected that same exchange to Power Automate. Now we're expanding the exchange ecosystem to include Rhino and more. Check back to see new connectors available with Data Exchange.

Streamline collaboration by integrating Revit with Microsoft Power Automate using the Data Exchange API

As Project, VDC, or BIM manager, you can unleash your team’s productivity and automate everyday tasks with the Data Exchange Connector for Power Automate.

Easily share subsets of Revit data with Power Automate to connect into hundreds of apps, from Slack to Excel to Power BI.

Share specific subsets of Revit data with Inventor

Take advantage of more controlled collaboration with your AEC design team and manufacturing partners who use Inventor. Select and provide the Revit data your fabrication partner needs, protecting your design IP and reducing data noise. As you make changes to your Revit data, Inventor users get notified of changes to only the data that’s been shared with them. The Data Exchange API makes the sharing of all data seamless for all users.

Send concepts from Rhino to Revit

Keeping conceptual design decisions in sync with detailed design development has always been a challenge. Now you can easily move geometry from Rhino to Revit - or from Revit to Rhino. This keeps the project designers on the same page and aware of the latest changes to Levels, Grids, Floors, Walls, and Curtain Walls.

How the Data Exchange API drives value for you, your team, and stakeholders

With the Data Exchange API, you can improve and streamline collaboration between your customers and the tools they use.
