Autodesk Platform Services — also known as APS — was formerly known as Autodesk Forge. Autodesk Forge, and now APS, is an evolving set of APIs and services that allow software developers and service providers direct access to the same functionality typically presented by BIM 360 and other Autodesk® products. These APIs provide Naviate Cloud Manager direct access to BIM 360® and allow it to interact with the user's data the same as if they were interacting with it from BIM 360®.
