Data Exchange API

Control, share, and connect your data across teams and apps

Share complete or selective 3D model data seamlessly across BIM, CAD, and other business applications so you can collaborate better with the tools you use. Manage your shared data through a common cloud environment, Autodesk Docs. Quickly query the data you need with our cloud API. For more advanced solutions, use our SDK to build custom software integrations that enable you to send and receive exchanged data.
