Forge: the cloud developer platform from Autodesk
Forge gives companies the tools to develop custom, cloud-based software applications that connect workflows for manufacturing, media/entertainment, architecture, engineering, and construction.
- BIM 360 API
- Data Management API
- Model Derivative API
- Design Automation API
- Reality Capture API
Create 3D Models from photogrammetry and camera captures
From handheld to drone-mounted cameras, use this API to process digital images in the cloud and create accurate 3D models (textured meshes, point clouds, or orthophotos). Accelerate the scan-to-BIM process using cloud computing while integrating geo-location data.
Forge empowers developers and innovators
“Limb loss is a little-talked-about cause of suffering and social isolation in the developing world. Matching people with suitable prosthesis transforms lives. Forge helps us connect people to the 3D-printed prosthetics in a way that’s truly scalable.”
“We see an explosion of data in the AEC industry, and it’s a challenge to manage it all. We saw an opportunity to use Forge to extract value from that data, taking advantage of the power of machine learning.”
“If I am a customer and am building a multi-million dollar project, the more updates you give me the better. And with this platform a drone can take our drone, have it take a 5 minute flight and give back results in hours instead of weeks.”
