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

AutoCAD DWG™ files are widely used in many industries today, and Forge Platform provides REST APIs to unlock the data inside them, or to create new ones. This class will show you how to securely connect Forge Platform to various data-storage services where your DWG files reside. We will demonstrate how to access a database while processing a DWG file, a critical piece for many customers who have embed database keys in their DWG files. This session features Forge and AutoCAD.

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.
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
Attend this class to learn about the changes and additions we’ve made to Forge Platform since our developer conference in June. See demonstrations of our new APIs, find out about our plans for the future, and address your questions to our team of Forge Platform engineers and product managers. This session features Forge.
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.
The aim of this roundtable is to gather individuals who are excited about how the future of making things is shaping the building and construction industry. We will look at how the industry has progressed from an age of 2D flatland data production, to the more advanced age of optimization of 3D digital data, to the present-day era of interoperability and collaboration in a new age of connection. We will focus on how we conceptualize, share information, collaborate, construct, and deliver smart buildings that can be analyzed, rated on performance, monitored, and maintained. The roundtable will look at how the present and future Autodesk, Inc., cloud technology—including Forge Platform—is set to radically change and revolutionize this process by making the transition from conceptual Building Information Modeling (BIM) to constructional BIM as smooth and seamless as possible. We will focus on how to optimally connect the digital data around designing, constructing, and managing buildings with reduced risk and improved outcomes. This session features BIM 360 Docs and Forge.
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.
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.
Is this the end of the proprietary file format? The Forge Platform Model Derivative API enables you to easily translate your design files to different formats, and extract data from those files for use almost anywhere. In this class, we will introduce these APIs by walking you through a series of sample code demonstrations. This session features Forge and Fusion 360.
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.
