We were excited to announce the release of Autodesk Takeoff API! In this first release of Takeoff API, the focus is to provide read access; in particular, to access inventory data stored in Takeoff product.
Using API, you can read following information:
- Measurement system under project admin
- Classification systems
- Takeoff types
- Takeoff items
- Content views (i.e., refers to either a 3D BIM model view or a 2D pdf sheet that a user could use to create takeoffs.)
For more information about the Takeoff API, please check out the official API documentation on Forge developer portal. The tutorial section will be a good starting point to understand how Takeoff API works.
