Announcing the Reality Solutions SDK

Reality data continues to be an integral part of the workflow supported by Autodesk. By making our technology available to partners, we accelerate our ability to bring solutions to our customers. We’re deepening our engagement with partners to collaboratively solve for the breadth of problems and challenges customers face.

Autodesk partners now have access that was previously not available. For example, this enables reading the point cloud format, converting point clouds to meshes, and pushing the resulting data to BIM 360. Workflows like this enable partners to build their own feature extraction solutions.

Starting now, partners can gain access to our RCP point cloud format. This serves as an entry point to Autodesk collections and key products including Revit, AutoCAD, Civil 3D, InfraWorks, and 3ds Max. Use of the ReCap point cloud format spans across all industries from design to construction, manufacturing, and production. All of these essential products access point clouds through the RCP file format.
