Autodesk Forge is our set of Application Program Interfaces (APIs) that allow our customers and partners to customize their own solutions around their design data.
Our Forge team just published a new Forge customer success story with BIM6D. BIM6D, a Barcelona-based creator of 3D modeling software, used our Forge platform to build POWERBIM, a digital-twin software system that links models with databases to manage asset lifecycles. The story highlights how:
- Forge’s Data Management API and the BIM 360 API shortens the development process,
- Forge's Model Derivative API improves access to designs and data,
- Forge's Webhook API keeps stakeholders up to date on changes in designs and data, and
- Forge's Design Automation API helps POWERBIM do the heavy lifting of automating repetitive tasks.
BIM6D also uses the Reality Capture API to process point clouds. It's everything but the kitchen sink!

Yesterday was middle child day, but today is digital twin day.
Digital forgery is alive in the lab.
