Autodesk Bets Big on Forge Platform to Make Anything
Forge platform surpasses 4,000 applications, demonstrating high demand for connected design and engineering experiences
Since announced at
- AR/VR – Added Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality support into the Forge 3D browser and mobile viewing experience. Data preparation and connectivity services (similar to what LIVE Design does with Revit data) to connect data and ease the asset pipeline between real-time AR/VR applications and Autodesk’s native design solutions will be available in the future.
- Rendering – The Autodesk Rendering service recently surpassed 50 million renderings. A new Forge Render API will soon be available, which will extend rendering power to any application.
- Data Management – Enhanced to support access projects and files managed in support for BIM 360 Docs and Fusion.
Security and Reliability –
Autodeskis pursuing industry standard security compliance such as SOC2 to maintain robust security and data protection controls, so customers can focus on creating services with high confidence.
“Autodesk relies on Forge as the foundation for its own cloud services
like Fusion 360 and BIM 360, and we want both developers and our end
customers to benefit from creating lightweight applications that fit
their business needs,” said
Forging the Future Together
- JE Dunn is at the forefront of the digital revolution in construction, and over the past year used Forge APIs to custom build Lens--a model-based estimating application. Lens harnesses and maximizes the value of information-rich models, combined with cutting-edge visualization technology to connect design data to elements of estimates. It brings together advanced functionality delivered through Forge, and integrates with Dunn Dashboard and Autodesk BIM 360, creating a seamless, transparent and connected ecosystem.
an online platform that simplifies the process of getting machined
parts made in America. MakeTime matches part orders from manufacturers
to available CNC machines at pre-qualified shops across
the United States. The result is simplified supply chain management & empowered expansion for both manufacturers and machine shops alike. MakeTime is plugged into Fusion 360, Autodesk360 and the Forge initiative to connect engineers to an expansive network of modern machine shops and on-demand CNC machines.
provides a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform for developing
Internet of Things(IoT) and smart, connected products. Seebo’s technology intuitively connects Autodeskdesign apps like Fusion 360 and enables users to drag and drop components (connectivity, motion and location features, etc.) into a product design framework to transform simple products into smart technology.
“We’re very excited about the integration between Autodesk Forge and
Seebo, which will provide
Cloud-native and always connected, Forge is the platform in which
