Autodesk Platform Services Toolkit Published

🕒 Published at:

Introduction

I am excited to announce a significant development in data interaction and retrieval processes using Autodesk Platform Services from Autodesk. Today, I am officially releasing the first version of a toolkit designed to facilitate data access, aiming to support AI processes, Data Analysts, LLM, and explore the boundaries where APS may fall short in providing for end-users.

APSToolkit
APSToolkit

APSToolkit is open-source, ensuring accessibility to all engineers, BIM developers, and data scientists. I am actively working on refining it further. Please feel free to provide any feedback in the comments below this post, and I will consider all suggestions.

APS Toolkit

APSToolkit (Former is Forge) is powerful for you to explore Autodesk Platform Services(APS). It's built on top of Autodesk.Forge and Newtonsoft.Json. Forge Toolkit includes some features allow you to read, download and write data from Autodesk Platform Services and export to CSV, Excel, JSON, XML, etc.

🔦 Features

  • Read/Download SVF Model
  • Read/Query Properties Database SQLite
  • Read/Download Properties Without Viewer
  • Read Geometry Data
