This class will introduce the Forge platform from the perspective of an early adopter – starting with business aspects, paradigm shift, cloud concepts, and the future of Autodesk cloud platform strategy. We will cover some of the technical challenges with web programming from the perspective of someone migrating from a desktop programming environment to the cloud, and discuss how to overcome them. We will then walk through some simple yet representative code samples helping you to get started with the Forge platform through the Viewer, Model Derivative API and Design Automation APIs. This session features Forge. AIA Approved

Your Building Information Modeling (BIM) data increases significantly in value the more you make use of it. Cloud-based technologies make this extremely easy. We explore how to connect the desktop and the cloud to make any BIM data you choose available to anyone you choose, including optional round-trip real-time editing of selected properties and features. This class discusses extracting information from your Revit Models, enhancing Collaboration for Revit workflows, new additions to the growing suite of The Building Coder desktop-BIM-cloud samples, AEC related Forge APIs such as the Viewer and the Model Derivative API. The latter enables easy translation of design files to different formats and extracting data from them to use almost anywhere. Using demonstrations and dissections of sample applications, we show how these programming tools can easily and vastly enhance your BIM workflows. This is an advanced class for experienced programmers. This session features Revit and Forge. AIA Approved
We invite customers who have a need to simulate thermal management of electronics to attend this roundtable. We plan on discussing and discovering common electrical computer-aided design (ECAD) and mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) workflows, going from ideation, conceptual layout, and final design. Thermal management fits in this design process throughout and we will present some mockups on how we see the next generation of simulation fitting into the design process. We hope to gain insight from the roundtable regarding how participants currently manage the ECAD data and use it along with MCAD data to perform thermal simulation, where their struggles are, and what could be done to make everything easier. This session features CFD, Forge, and Fusion 360.
Virtual reality (VR) is a game changer for collaborative design review. VR technology is now at a quality level that gives designers confidence to make design decisions virtually. Designers and engineers can explore virtual models and design variations at full scale before physical models get built. Multiple users can collaborate across multiple remote locations. This talk will cover innovative immersive VR technology with VRED software and Forge Platform. Hear firsthand from Faraday Future about how they are capitalizing on VR to solve design review challenges and bring cars to market faster at lower cost. The future of automotive design visualization is here. This session features VRED and Forge.
Autodesk, Inc., has developed a new platform to power the Future of Making Things. Autodesk is providing an unprecedented ability to capitalize on their years of “design and make” expertise though the computing revolution that is the cloud. In this lecture, I’ll demonstrate how you can capitalize on this revolution using your existing .NET skills. This session features Forge. AIA Approved
Dragon Innovation wrote the book on manufacturing at entrepreneur speed. In this class, we'll discuss how hardware teams can see into their manufacturing future with a well structured Bill Of Materials, avoiding costly mistakes as they move from prototype to production.
Learn how to unleash data hosted on Autodesk, Inc., with the Forge Data Management API. We will cover how to access, create, and share using Node.js sample coding on web-based apps. You’ll also learn how to integrate with other data providers, from both Autodesk and third parties. This session features Forge.
Ask your programming questions to our panel of hardcore cloud and mobile experts from our Forge Platform development teams. If you are writing solutions that are based on these technologies or you are just about to start and want to know more, then this is the perfect forum to get to know the people who create the APIs and services you work with and your fellow programmers who use those APIs. Come and ask questions, add your expertise to the discussion, or just listen and learn. This session features Forge and A360.
The Research Team at Autodesk, Inc., has been developing technology for the Internet of Things (IoT) since before people called it that. Project Dasher is a building performance management tool that displays historical and real-time sensor data inside a building model. The Research Team has taken the learning acquired while developing Project Dasher and used it to create technology that addresses the needs of the broader IoT market. This session will look at how IoT APIs (application programming interfaces) from Autodesk Research can be used to display information in websites integrating the viewer from the Forge Platform to inform the design process and even power generative design. This session features Forge and Dynamo Studio. AIA Approved
We'll demonstrate some example apps in Forge Platform using Inventor.IO software and we’ll use this to create an interactive discussion on what kind of things you'd like to build on Forge Platform using Inventor.IO. This session features Forge, Forge, and Inventor Professional.
Making and Learning coupled with academia’s culture of research and development has traditionally been the cornerstone of higher education especially at the graduate level. This tradition is however changing and the culture of innovation is beginning to spread across other levels of education ranging from secondary up through postsecondary. Students and educators empowered with cheaper and easily available digital technologies are inventing new computing solutions for various applications. Autodesk’s recently introduced Forge platform helps students and educators nurture innovative ideas and transform them into real and viable solutions. Forge offers academic entrepreneurs a network of experts, a rich community of practice, software development platform and resources to catalyze innovation. Join this panel presentation and learn how educators and students have already benefitted from Forge’s features to enable the Future of Making.
The Web world has changed. Now that all the most popular web browsers support WebGL, 3D on the web is a reality. With this Lab, Full Stack web developers who also are 3D enthusiasts will be able to create interactive web application and also get a head start to VR apps. The Forge Model Derivative API and zero-client Viewer allow developers to create interactive websites for all kinds of different markets where 3D CAD interaction could be added, and also full access to the metadata becomes available. This is a workshop on how to set up a Node.js server and client-side JS code to display and interact with any filename extension 3D model (CAD) using Forge - View and Data API. I will guide attendees through the entire process of building a simple application, including writing a node.js server, use of npm, hosting the web application and interacting with the 3D model by running different viewer JS extensions. This session features Forge.
