United States : AUTODESK shows the way APIs help bring a change in personalized production

June 26, 2014



Growing partnerships between the provider of 3-D modeling software Autodesk and users of its ReCap API show the way production is set to become yet another sector facing major disruption.

Earlier large industrial production projects are being tailored to suit individual demands without the manufacturing volumes required to gain economies of scale.

APIs are at the center of allowing this transformation.

A senior official of Autodesk's reality solutions group said with ReCap the company provides reality capture for laser scanning, particularly telemetry, converting pictures into 3-D models using cloud computing.

He said the company has created its own web services like ReCap 360, but it has also created an API for third-party developers who can create their own applications.

He added that API is in reality about the ability to embed photos into 3-D using the cloud and third-party developers can develop an application for desktop, mobile or iPad app, to enable users to upload photos to the cloud and get back a 3-D model.
