Glue API Versioning and Deprecated Calls

When making a Glue Web services API call, you need to include a version information in the endpoint or URL. e.g., https://b4.autodesk.com/api/security/v1/login.{format} https://b4.autodesk.com/api/model/v2/info.{format}? The API has this versioning to 1) allow changes in the API for further enhancement, as well as 2) maintain backward compatibility. Unlike desktop applications where we... Read more →


Dynamo and Computational BIM - Part 1: Introduction and Resources

Design is both art and science – this is especially true at this time when Building Information Modelling (BIM) is changing the AEC industry’s paradigm of how buildings are planned, analyzed, created and managed. Computational methods give designers the ability to automate many of the design tasks, generate parametric geometries and parse the design model to perform various engineering analysis. Well, as promising as it sounds, I understand it can be very challenging and probably scary for designers to write all the codes/scripts to develop the computational methods. In this blog, let’s take a look at how to develop “easy” and “graphical” scripting for computational design using Dynamo. Read more →
