Forge is our application program interface (API) platform and supporting materials (sample code, manuals) as well as a community of developers who uses those APIs. Although Forge is intended for our customers and 3rd party developers to be able to use our web services, we use Forge for our development of the cloud-based services that we offer. You can leverage Forge in the same ways that we do.
Forge is defined by 7 groups of APIs:
- Design Automation API
- Reality Capture API
- Data Management API
- Model Derivative API
- Webhooks API
Bastien Mazeran is a Premium Support Specialist for Forge who is part of our Worldwide Field Operations team. Bastien shared how he developed a mobile application that uses the Reality Capture and Viewer APIs.
Autodesk has always been an automation company, and today more than ever that means helping people make more things, better things, with less; more and better in terms of increasing efficiency, performance, quality, and innovation; less in terms of time, resources, and negative impacts (e.g., social, environmental). Autodesk Forge is an integral part of our automation plans.
Mobile application development is alive in the lab.
