Fusion Data API

Manufacturing design data stored in the cloud, in a granular, transparent, and accessible way.




Access manufacturing design data via the cloud

Through the Fusion Data APIs, you can read, write, and extend  your design model through cloud-based workflows. All this without the need for desktop authoring applications like Fusion 360.

About the Fusion Data API
How is Fusion Data API different

How is the Fusion Data API different from other Forge Data APIs?

Fusion Data APIs federates information from multiple Forge services, in one easy-to-use GraphQL interface. It includes granular and transparent data from the Fusion design that is much richer than what you could access before.

Leverage the power of GraphQL

With the Fusion Data API based on GraphQL, you can programmatically access manufacturing information and achieve a variety of cloud-based automations and workflows more efficiently than REST APIs.

Fusion Data API Benefits

Benefits from granular data access

Via the cloud, Fusion Data API allows you to access granular, transparent data, rather than opaque data. Enjoy benefits such as:

  • A standardized collaboration model
  • Efficient data access and manipulation, no costly transfers or storage
  • The right data at the right time, reducing versioning overhead
  • The right data for the right people, so only needed data is exposed to collaborators

What can you do with the Fusion Data APIs?

With the Fusion Data API, you can programmatically access manufacturing information and achieve a variety of cloud-based functionality, such as:

Explore assembly structure

Explore entire assembly structure, including internal components, all the way down to component properties, thumbnails and breps. 

Integrate with ERP systems

Accessing the Bill of Materials of a design, traversing the hierarchy of parts within the model for integration with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems using unique part identifiers.

Set up notifications

Using Webhooks to notify a server-based application and trigger a downstream workflow whenever a milestone is created.
