Collaboration and Innovation: Exploring Autodesk Platform Services (Formerly Forge)
Autodesk Forge, a set of cloud-based services with which users can create, design, and share 3D models, is rebranding as Autodesk Platform Services. The rebranding reflects the company’s focus on expanding the capabilities of the Forge platform to provide a more comprehensive set of services for developers, manufacturers, and construction professionals.
One of the key features of the Autodesk Platform Services is the ability to connect to a wide range of data sources. This allows users to easily access and share information across different platforms and devices. The platform also includes a set of APIs and SDKs that allow developers to create custom applications and integrations.
In addition to the rebranding, Autodesk is also introducing new services to the platform, including collaboration services and design services (e.g. BIM 360, and Fusion 360). These services aim to improve collaboration and communication among project teams, allowing them to better share information and make more informed decisions.
The Autodesk Platform Services also includes a number of tools and services for manufacturers, such as Fusion 360, which allows users to create and share detailed manufacturing plans, and PowerMill, which provides advanced 5-axis machining capabilities.
Overall, the rebranding of Autodesk Forge to Autodesk Platform Services represents a significant step forward for the company, as it continues to expand and evolve its offerings to meet the needs of a wide range of users. With the new services and expanded capabilities, the platform is well-positioned to help professionals across a variety of industries work more efficiently and effectively.
