This Quick Start builds an Autodesk Forge environment on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud for customizable building blocks in the form of web service application programming interfaces (APIs), tools, and services. The deployment takes about 15 minutes.

Autodesk Forge is a cloud developer platform for building custom software applications, workflows, and integrations across industries such as manufacturing, architecture, engineering, and construction. With Autodesk Forge, teams, third-party developers, and customers can design, build, and integrate workflows. For example, developers can use Forge to overlay Internet of Things (IoT) data on top of 3D information models, to later perform data analysis and create visual reports.

This Quick Start is for IT infrastructure architects, administrators, and DevOps professionals who want to implement or extend their Autodesk Forge workloads on the AWS Cloud.
